What Is 1000 Series Aluminum Alloys?

1000 series aluminum is regarded as commercially pure aluminum. It contains a minimum of 99% aluminum with relatively no alloying additions.

1000 series aluminum is non-heat treatable, but this material exhibits high electrical and thermal conductivity, excellent corrosion resistance and excellent workability.

1000 Series Aluminum Sheet Overview

1000 series aluminum sheet contains 1050 aluminum sheet, 1060 aluminum sheet, 1100 aluminum sheet, 1200 aluminum sheet, 1350 aluminum sheet, etc.

The 1000 series aluminum sheet generally has the characteristics of excellent machinability, high electrical conductivity, good corrosion resistance and weldability.

1000-series aluminum sheet is generally soft aluminum and is not suitable for high-strength applications, but is suitable for applications requiring corrosion resistance and electrical conductivity, such as cables, wires, capacitor housings, kitchen utensils, decorative items, and chemical equipment. The 1000-series aluminum has lower strength and hardness, but they can be increased in strength and hardness by cold working such as rolling, drawing, and extrusion, while still maintaining aluminum’s high machinability.

Characteristic Of 1000 Series Aluminum

Among all series of aluminum alloys, the 1000 series belongs to the series with the most aluminum content. The purity reaches more than 99.00%.

Because it does not contain other technical elements, the production process is relatively simple and the price is relatively cheap. It is the most commonly used series in conventional industries at present.

At present, most of the aluminum alloys circulating in the market are 1050, 1060 and 1100 aluminum alloys.

1000 series aluminium for building

The minimum aluminum content of the 1000 series aluminum plate is determined according to the last two Arabic numerals. For example, the last two Arabic numerals of the 1050 series are 50. According to the international brand naming principle, the aluminum content must reach 99.5% or more to qualify as a product.
Our country’s aluminum alloy technical standard (gB/T3880-2006) also clearly stipulates that the aluminum content of 1050 should reach 99.5%. In the same way, the aluminum content of 1060 series aluminum plates must reach more than 99.6%.

What Is 1000 Series Aluminum Used For

1050 Aluminum Alloys Application

Alloy 1050 is known for its good corrosion resistance, formability, weldability, ductility and highly reflective surface. This is a popular grade for general sheet metal working where moderate strength is required.

Alloy 1050 is commonly used in food industry containers, building flashings, cable sheathing and chemical processing plant equipment.

1060 Aluminum Application

Alloy 1060 is a relatively low strength, high purity alloy with a minimum aluminum content of 99.6%. It is known for its excellent welding characteristics and formability as well as good corrosion resistance.

It has excellent formability by cold or hot working by commercial techniques and can be welded by standard commercial methods. Chemical equipment is its typical use.

Usage Of 1100 Aluminum Alloys

Alloy 1100 adds a small amount of silicon, iron and copper to increase its strength, and its strength is slightly higher than that of 1060. It is used for processing parts that require good formability and high corrosion resistance but do not require high strength

Such as chemical products, food Industrial equipment and storage containers, thin plate processing parts, deep drawing or spinning concave vessels, welding parts, heat exchangers, printing plates, nameplates, reflective appliances.

1350 Aluminum Alloys Application

Alloy 1350 is mainly used for electrical conductors, and the -H111 state exhibits the highest electrical conductivity among all extruded aluminum conductor grades, reaching or exceeding 61.0% IACS, and is often used in wires, conductive strands, busbars, and transformer strips.

Casting production process and its introduction

The purpose of melting and casting is to produce alloys with satisfactory composition and high purity of melt, so as to create favorable conditions for casting alloys of various shapes.

Melting and casting process steps: batching --- feeding --- melting --- stirring after melting, slag removal --- pre-analysis sampling --- adding alloy to adjust the composition, stirring --- refining --- static Setting——Guide furnace casting.

Hot rolling production process and its introduction

  • 1. Hot rolling generally refers to rolling above the metal recrystallization temperature;
  • 2. During the hot rolling process, the metal has both hardening and softening processes. Due to the influence of deformation speed, as long as the recovery and recrystallization process is too late, there will be a certain work hardening;
  • 3. The recrystallization of the metal after hot rolling is incomplete, that is, the coexistence of recrystallized structure and deformed structure;
  • 4. Hot rolling can improve the processing performance of metals and alloys, reduce or eliminate casting defects.
    • Hot rolling equipment

      Casting and rolling process

      Casting and rolling process: liquid metal, front box (liquid level control), casting and rolling machine (lubrication system, cooling water), shearing machine, coiling machine.

      • 1. The casting and rolling temperature is generally between 680°C and 700°C. The lower the better, the stable casting and rolling line usually stops once a month or more to re-stand. During the production process, it is necessary to strictly control the liquid level of the front tank to prevent low liquid level;
      • 2. Lubrication uses C powder with incomplete combustion of gas for lubrication, which is also one of the reasons for the dirty surface of casting and rolling materials;
      • 3. The production speed is generally between 1.5m/min-2.5m/min;
      • 4. The surface quality of products produced by casting and rolling is generally relatively low, and generally cannot meet products with special physical and chemical performance requirements.
        • Cold rolling production process

          • 1. Cold rolling refers to the rolling production method below the recrystallization temperature;
          • 2. There will be no dynamic recrystallization during the rolling process, and the temperature will rise to the recovery temperature at most, and the cold rolling will appear in a work hardening state, and the work hardening rate will be large;
          • 3. The cold-rolled sheet and strip have high dimensional accuracy, good surface quality, uniform structure and performance, and products in various states can be obtained with heat treatment;
          • 4. Cold rolling can roll out thin strips, but at the same time, it has the disadvantages of high energy consumption for deformation and many processing passes.
            • Casting rolling

              Introduction to finishing production process

              • 1. Finishing is a processing method to make the cold-rolled sheet meet the customer's requirements, or to facilitate the subsequent processing of the product;
              • 2. The finishing equipment can correct the defects produced in the hot rolling and cold rolling production process, such as cracked edge, oily, poor plate shape, residual stress, etc. It needs to ensure that no other defects are brought into the production process;
              • 3. There are various finishing equipments, mainly including cross-cutting, slitting, stretching and straightening, annealing furnace, slitter, etc.
