The application of Aluminium in construction and architecture slowed in the 1940s, as the metal was predominantly used for producing planes. It even earned a second name, “winged metal.” But as early as the middle of the twentieth century, Aluminium sheet became more and more popular in the construction of high-rise buildings and bridges. Window frames, panels, domed roofs and other wide-span constructions and ornaments were increasingly made with Aluminium. Today, it is used for roofs, siding, translucent panes, window and doorframes, staircases, air conditioning systems, solar protection, heating systems, furniture and many other things.
The application of 5052 aluminium sheet are various auto parts, sheet metal parts, mechanical parts, automobiles, aircraft fuel tanks, warships, submarines, containers, household appliance use, refrigerator liners and so on. Performance of 5052 aluminum sheet: Tensile strength (σb): 170～305MPa, Yield strength (σb): 0.2 (MPa), Elastic modulus (E): 69.3～70.7Gpa, Annealing temperature: 345°C.
Aluminum 2014 is a precipitation hardening alloy with fair corrosion resistance, high electrical conductivity, and good machinability. As one of the strongest aluminum alloys on the commercial market, 2014 Aluminum is heavily used in the manufacture of aircraft and truck parts, as well as in forging applications. 2014 alloy is primarily aluminum based, with copper being the other major element. Standard specifications for 2014 include ASTM B209, UNS A92014 and more.
