## Aluminum sheet roll classification

The aluminum sheet roll classification includes several common aluminum alloy series of 1000-8000. Their respective alloy compositions are different and their uses are not the same. The following analysis is made one by one.

## Calculate weight based on aluminum sheet thickness

The weight calculation formula of aluminum sheet roll is weight =thickness*width*length*density/1000000 (unit: mm), for example: a piece of aluminum sheet thickness 2.5mm 4×8 aluminum sheet, theoretical weight=2.5*1220*2440*2.71/1000000 =20.16KG, there is also a quick way to convert the length and width into meters: 2.5*1.22*2.44*2.71=20.16KG, and the result can also be obtained.

## aluminum sheet roll 1000 series

The 1000 series aluminum plate is also called pure aluminum plate. Among all series, the 1000 series belongs to the series with the most aluminum content. The purity can reach more than 99.00%. Because it does not contain other technical elements, the production process is relatively simple and the price is relatively cheap. It is currently the most commonly used series in conventional industries.

## aluminum sheet roll 2000 series

2000 series aluminum plates are aviation aluminum materials, which are not often used in conventional industries. There are few factories producing 2000 series aluminum plates in my country. The quality cannot be compared with foreign countries. The imported aluminum plates are mainly provided by Korean and German production companies. With the development of my country’s aerospace industry, the production technology of 2000 series aluminum plates will be further improved.

## 3000 series aluminum sheet roll

3000 series can also be called anti-rust aluminum plate. The production technology of 3000 series aluminum sheet plate in my country is relatively excellent. 3000 series aluminum plate is made of manganese as the main component. The content is between 1.0-1.5 percent. It is a series with better anti-rust function. It is usually used in humid environments such as air conditioners, refrigerators, and undercars. The price is higher than the 1000 series, and it is a more commonly used alloy series.

## 5000 series aluminum sheet roll

The representative products of 5000 series aluminum sheet roll are 5052, 5005, 5083 , 5A05 series. The 5000 series aluminum plate belongs to the more commonly used alloy aluminum plate series, the main element is magnesium, and the magnesium content is between 3-5%. It can also be called aluminum-magnesium alloy, and it is widely used in conventional industries.

## 6000 series aluminum sheet roll

6000 series aluminum sheet rolls are generally characterized by high strength and strong corrosion resistance. 6000 series can be used in aircraft parts, camera parts, couplers, ship parts and hardware, electronic parts and joints, decorative or various hardware, hinge heads, magnetic heads, brake pistons, hydraulic pistons, electrical accessories, valves and valve parts.

## 8000 series aluminum foil roll

The more commonly used 8000 series is 8011, which belongs to the thin aluminum sheet thickness alloy series. In my memory, the main function is to make bottle caps and food and drug packaging. It is also used in radiators, most of which are aluminum foil.

Through the above introduction of Mingtai Aluminum, we have learned about the relevant content of the aluminum roll series. There are many aluminum roll products now. We should choose different series of aluminum sheet roll products according to the equipment manufactured and different uses.
