Selection factors of aluminum plate thickness for containers

Several factors need to be considered when choosing the thickness of an aluminum alloy container, such as the container’s usage environment, required strength and corrosion resistance, weight requirements, cost budget, etc. For example, if it needs to be used to transport heavy objects or be used in harsh marine environments, it is necessary to choose a thicker aluminum alloy container to ensure its strength and corrosion resistance. But if it is only used for light transportation or in a relatively mild environment, you can choose an aluminum alloy container with a smaller thickness to reduce weight and cost.

Why use aluminum plates to produce containers

Container transportation is very common in maritime transportation, which requires that the materials used to manufacture containers must have certain corrosion resistance while ensuring high strength.

There are several main reasons why containers are produced by aluminum plates:

  • Lightweight: Aluminum is lighter than many other metals, which makes the overall weight of the container less, thus saving on shipping costs.
  • Corrosion Resistance: Aluminum has good corrosion resistance and can resist weathering in various climate conditions.
  • High Strength: Although aluminum is lighter than many metals, it is extremely strong. This allows aluminum containers to withstand heavy loads.
  • Recyclability: Aluminum is recyclable, which makes aluminum containers more environmentally friendly.
