Starting work on your project, we are thinking over every little thing. We will study the project, help you find the right alloy for you and find the best possible solution for you.
Standards and alloys
Aluminum has many valuable properties. It is very durable, despite the fact that it is almost 2 times lighter than iron. Not subject to corrosion, because its surface is always covered with the finest oxide film (see anodizing). During the entire life of the plant, it practically does not require repair. It does not magnetize, it conducts electricity perfectly. And of course durability, this is one of the main advantages, the durability of aluminum structures is over 80 years. It retains its structural properties under temperature changes.
After processisng the surface of aluminum products, they are not susceptible to corrosion caused by rain, snow, heat and smog. Aluminum does not require recycling, it simply does not exist, since aluminum scrap is subject to recovery, retaining its original properties. In the construction there is developed system of circular process of aluminum utilization.
The harvesting waste of enterprises and replaced old construction parts are sent for reuse. It also does not contain heavy metal impurities, does not emit harmful substances under the influence of ultraviolet rays, and maintains its performance in any climatic conditions at temperature differences from -80°C and up to + 100°C.
Aluminum profile, as a rule, is made of a three-component alloy:
- aluminum (ensures lightness);
- magnesium (strengthens the strength of alloy);
- silicon (increases the casting properties).
In conclusion, I would like to note that the use of aluminum can be infinite: this metal and its alloys can be repeatedly melted without losing its physical properties.
Most of the aluminum produced since the existence of the industry have been used today.
BENKAM company widely uses aluminum alloys of series 6ххх. Due to the structural advantages of the 6xxx series alloys, the majority of the world market uses alloys of this particular series, because their strength, surface finishability, and operational properties make it possible to use it in virtually all areas of the industry. Below, there are the most common alloys that BENKAM can provide:Contact with us
ALLOY 6005AThis alloy is used for building structures and is used only for extruded profiles. It has a fairly high strength and, at the same time, can be pressed into more complex profiles than 6082 and 6061 alloys. Special advantage is in pressing thin-walled hollow profiles.
ALLOY 6060The alloy with the highest compressibility (easy pressing) and the lowest sensitivity to hardening is the "European" aluminum alloy 6060 due to the lowest concentration of alloying elements. Typical applications: windows, stairs, handrails, truck body parts.
ALLOY 6063Alloy 6063 has a finer grain structure than the 6060, provides a better cosmetic appearance after anodizing. It has high corrosion resistance and good workability and weldability. Common use includes a cylinder tube, electrical bus conductors and architectural applications.
ALLOY 6082Aluminum alloy 6082 is most widely used in construction. Usually, this alloy is the main building aluminum alloy for both welded structures and structures without the use of welding. Alloy 6082 is a high-strength alloy, which is used in various types of aluminum rolled products.
