# 1/2 inch aluminum plate

The thickness of 1/2 aluminum plate is 1/2 inch. It belongs to thin aluminum sheet. It can be used as ship plate, fuel tank body material, punching as smart mechanical parts, and also as mold. How to calculate the weight and the strength properties of different alloys will be mentioned below.

## 1/2 aluminum plate weight

To calculate 1/2 aluminum plate weight, you must first understand its calculation method. Aluminum plate weight is multiplied by its length, width, thickness, and density. First of all, we know that the theoretical density of aluminum plate is 2.71 g/cm³. Taking 1/2 thick 1 inch aluminum sheet as an example, it is converted to a millimeter thickness of 12.7mm. Then the weight of 1/2 inch aluminum plate per square is 1*12.7*2.71, and the weight result is approximately 34.4kg.

## 1/2 aluminum plate strength

For the strength of 1/2 aluminum plate of different series of aluminum alloys, there will be some slight differences in performance.

1xxx series alloy 1 2 inch aluminum plate has high aluminum content, but low strength, and cannot be strengthened by heat treatment. However, 1/2 aluminum plate has good ductility, and it is easy to form and weld during processing. Moreover, it has good corrosion resistance, which can be further improved after anodizing.

The alloy strength of 3xxx series alloy 1 2 inch aluminum plate is not high, but it is slightly higher than industrial 1xxx pure aluminum, but it cannot be strengthened by heat treatment, so cold working methods are usually used to improve its mechanical properties.

The strength of 5xxx series alloy aluminum plate 1/2 inch is medium but higher than 1xxx and 3xxx. It cannot be strengthened by heat treatment, but because it belongs to Al-Mg alloy, it has good corrosion resistance and weldability. The annealed state has good plasticity and work hardening. High success rate, low plasticity and high hardness in H state.

6xxx series alloy 1 2 inch aluminum plate The high-quality aluminum alloy products produced by the heat treatment pre-stretching process have higher strength than the previous ones. It has the advantages of good corrosion resistance and high toughness. The 1/2 aluminum plate of this series is not deformed and easy to polish after processing, and has an excellent oxidation effect.
