Aluminum Plate Products
Aerotech Alloys has a wide range of aluminum pate in many different sizes, tempers and alloys. Plate is used in heavy-duty applications in the aerospace industry, military and transportation product manufacturing.
When it's machined to shape, aluminum plate forms the skins of jets and spacecraft fuel tanks. It is also used to manufacture structural sections for railcars and ships, as well as armor for military vehicles.
Types of Plate Alloy
6061 aluminum plate is a harder, more machinable aluminum, used in the production of canoes, bus and truck bodies, sailboats, transmission towers, scaffolding, mine skips and furniture, among others.
3003 aluminum plate is a softer, more formable aluminum, offering good weldability and corrosion resistance at a competitive price. It is often used in cooking utensils, ductwork, gasoline tanks, heat exchangers and general sheet metal work.
The highest strength alloys are heat treated and then quickly cooled to room temperature. They are then stretched in order to straighten and relieve any internal stress that may have built up during the rolling and heat-treating.
The plates are then either aged naturally at room temperature or artificially aged in a furnace to achieve the right combination of corrosion resistance and strength. The plate is then trimmed to its required size.
Aerotech Alloys also offers laser, plasma, and water-jet cutting services to comply with our clients' specific requirements.
All our aluminum plate products are shipped with mill test reports and stenciled accordingly before being carefully packaged to minimize the chance of any damage occurring during transportation.
