Characteristics of hot-forged aluminum

 - Hot-forged aluminium offers better mechanical characteristics than die casting

- Hot-forging crée un fibrage linéaire favorable (?)

- Hot-forged Offers the advantage of excellent material health, good surface condition, no porosity, very good waterproofing

- At equal volume, aluminum has 34% of the weight of the steel (density 2.7 for 7.85)

- Aluminum is an excellent conductor of temperature, 1.8 times better than copper

-Recycling aluminum is easy and economical, environmentally friendly

 

 

The different aluminum families

1000 – Used for mechanical components with anodization (electricity, chemistry, agri-food)

2000 – Used in industry including aeronautics (easy machining)

5000 – Used in construction

6000 – Used in the automotive and nautical industries (resistance to corrosion)

7000 – Used in armaments, aeronautics and sport (mechanical resistance)
