Aluminum is an easy-to-process metal. It is a good conductor and especially lightweight compared to other metals. For example, it is 60% lighter than iron. However, it is a strong material that is corrosion-resistant and does not rust. It is well-suited for machining due to its excellent malleability.
Aluminum is a incredibly strong but flexible material and also many times lighter in weight than other metal types. That is why it is widely used in the automotive and aerospace industries. Its hardness changes when heated, making it less suitable as a material for engines. It is not magnetic.
The material is resistant to all sorts of external influences because a thin layer of oxidized aluminum provides protection. Thanks to this oxide layer, aluminum is stable to water and air, but it also gives the metal a dull appearance.
It also ensures that it does not rust or react inflammably with other substances. Due to this corrosion resistance, it is also widely used as an anode, an aid to prevent reaction with water or air, for other metal types. Therefore, aluminum is often applied as a protective layer in the shipping industry to prevent wear and tear of the parts underwater.
The most common machinable qualities are EN AW 7075/6026/6082/2011.
