1050 aluminum foil for armored cable

The application of 1050 aluminum foil in armored cables is mainly as one of the materials for the armor layer. Armored cable is a power cable with a metal protective layer (armored layer), which can enhance the mechanical strength of the cable, improve its resistance to pressure and impact, and prevent mice and other animals from being bitten. It can also play a certain role Fire protection effect.

Because of its good flexibility and conductive properties, 1050 aluminum foil is usually used to wrap the cable core in armored cables to form one or more layers of aluminum armor. This can not only increase the overall mechanical strength of the cable, but also effectively improve the grounding performance of the cable, reduce electromagnetic interference, and enhance the safety and stability of the cable. Especially in situations where bending or movement is required, cables using 1050 aluminum foil as armoring material can better reflect their excellent adaptability and durability.

1050 aluminum foil for capacitor

One of the important uses of 1050 aluminum foil is to make capacitors. Capacitors are composed of a layer of aluminum foil and a layer of insulating material. The function of aluminum foil is to store charge and energy, that is, to store electrical energy in the capacitor. When the capacitor is charged, charges will accumulate on the surface of the aluminum foil. Under the action of the electric field, the intensity of the electric field between the aluminum foil and the insulating material that stores the charges will increase, thereby achieving the purpose of storing electrical energy.


  • 1. Lightweight: Capacitor aluminum foil is lightweight and is very suitable for use in various electronic devices, instruments and measuring equipment.
  • 2. Good electrical conductivity: Aluminum foil has good electrical conductivity and can quickly store charge and energy.
  • 3. High strength: Capacitor aluminum foil has been specially treated to have high corrosion resistance, wear resistance and strength, and can work in harsh environments.
  • 4. High stability: Capacitor aluminum foil can maintain stable performance under the influence of temperature changes, voltage changes, electric field changes and other factors. This is one of the reasons why aluminum foil is widely used in making capacitors.
  • 5. Safe and reliable: Capacitor aluminum foil has been optimized designed and manufactured with special processes. It has excellent safety and reliability and can effectively ensure the normal operation and service life of electronic devices.

1050 aluminum foil for heat exchanger

1050 aluminum foil can be used for heat exchangers, but it may not be the most common choice due to its relatively low strength compared to other aluminum alloys. Heat exchangers require materials that can withstand high temperatures and pressures while maintaining their structural integrity.

Aluminum alloys like 1100, 3003, and 5052 are more commonly used for heat exchangers due to their higher strength, excellent corrosion resistance, and good thermal conductivity. These alloys can be formed into various shapes and sizes to meet the specific requirements of heat exchanger applications.

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.
