Aluminum used in tanker making

- 2020-01-22 -

The commonly used aluminum alloy sheet for tank trucks in the market are mainly 5 series and 6 series alloys, 5 series are aluminum alloys with magnesium as the main alloy element, 6 series are aluminum alloys with magnesium and silicon as the main alloy element and Mg 2Si phase as the strengthening phase Among them, the main alloy grades include: 5052 aluminum sheet, 5083 aluminum sheet, 5754 aluminum sheet, 6061 aluminum sheet and 6082 aluminum sheet.

5052 aluminum sheet for tanker making

5052 aluminum sheet is AL-Mg alloy aluminum sheet , which is the most widely used type of rust-proof aluminum with high strength and corrosion resistance. However, it cannot be strengthened by heat treatment, and the plasticity is good during semi-cold work hardening, and the plasticity is low when cold work hardening, and it can be polished.

5083 aluminum sheet for tanker making

The magnesium alloy in the 5083 aluminum sheet has high strength, and the heat treated alloy has good processability, corrosion resistance and welding performance. It is widely used in transportation vehicles, such as ships, airplanes, vehicles and pressure vessels (liquid tank trucks, refrigerated trucks, refrigerated containers), etc.

5754 aluminum sheet for tanker making

5754 aluminum sheet has the characteristics of medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and easy processing and forming. It is a typical alloy in Al-Mg series alloys. In foreign countries, 5754 aluminum alloy sheet with different heat treatment states are the main materials used in automobile manufacturing (car doors, molds, seals) and can manufacturing.

6061 aluminum sheet for tanker making

6061 aluminum sheet has medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, good processability, and can be anodized and colored. Because it contains a small amount of Cu, the strength is higher than 6063, and the quenching sensitivity is higher than 6063. After quenching, air quenching cannot be achieved. It requires a solution treatment and quenching aging.
