Aluminum is lightweight, durable, malleable and corrosion-resistant. This metal is widely used for components in the aerospace, transportation and construction industries.
Aluminum alloys are divided into 8 main series:
1000 series, represent pure alumium with aluminum proportion of 99%+.
2000 series, aluminum-copper alloys, eg. 2014.
3000 series, aluminum-manganese alloys, eg. 3003.
4000 series, aluminum-silicon alloys, eg. 4032.
5000 series, aluminum-magnesium alloys, eg. 5052.
6000 series, aluminum-magnesium-silicon alloys, eg. 6061.
7000 series, aluminum-zinc alloys, eg. 7001.
8000 series, are alloys with other elements.
