The use of aluminum for construction
Listed below are the brands and the advantages of the material and its intended use. This information will greatly facilitate the task of choice when looking for structural solutions.
For load-bearing structures in the first place important strength. Alloys high strength — D16T, Д1Т, В95Т (T1), AK4−1T, АК6Т. Sredneprochny alloys — АМг5Н, АМг6Н, AD31, AD33. The method of connection. Welding — connect all brands except for D16 and other rare metals. Thread connect — AK4−1T, АК6Т, D16T, AMg5, AMg6, В95Т (T1). The resistance to corrosion. High — AMH, AMC, AD31, D35, AD00-AD1, A0-A5. Low — to a protective coating: V95, D16.
In the case of less strong material strength of the structure is achieved by selecting a larger cross-section profiles and larger diameter pipes. But in this case, increases the weight and cost of the designs, and defeats the purpose of a variety of light and cheap aluminium alloys as a structural material.
Made of anodized aluminum
D16 brand one of the most convenient structural models. The fact that after heating to 500 °C made of anodized aluminum easily deformed, but more importantly, after 96 hours after cooling at ambient temperature the material was returned to the original strength. Area, pipe, profile can be bent to the desired angle without loss of strength. The disadvantage of aluminum is it welded, only spot welded and resistant to corrosion. Because argon-arc welding the weld is prone to cracking, the aluminum sheet is usually connected with studs and pipe threads.
To buy, price
The company «Electrocentury-steel» sells semi-finished products of aluminium and its alloys at the best price. It is based bets on the London stock exchange non-ferrous metals and depends on technological features of production without the inclusion of additional costs. All the party goods have the quality certificate on conformity to requirements of standards and technical conditions. In the certificate marked by the manufacturer, the number of drawings and name parts, alloy grade, number of melt, the mechanical properties of components, the chemical composition and the results of additional tests. Implementation of orders in the shortest possible time. Wholesale buyers are offered preferential discounts.
