Introduce of Aluminum Billet

Aluminum billet is a kind of aluminum product. The melting and casting of aluminum billet includes melting, purification, impurity removal, gas removal, slag removal and casting process.

The Primary aluminum billet is formed by adding other components directly according to the brand through the primary aluminum in the electrolytic aluminum plant. The remelted aluminum billet is an aluminum billet remelted with A00 aluminum ingot or waste aluminum; There is little difference between primary aluminum and remelted aluminum rod in general aluminum profile processing and production. For example, the common aluminum profile is 6063-T5.

6063 aluminum billet is a low alloyed Al Mg Si high plastic alloy. It has many valuable characteristics: 1. Heat treatment strengthening, high impact toughness and insensitive to defects. 2. 2. It has excellent thermoplastic and can be extruded into various profiles with complex structure, thin wall and hollow at high speed or forged into forgings with complex structure. It has wide quenching temperature range and low quenching sensitivity. After extrusion and forging demoulding, as long as the temperature is higher than the quenching temperature. That is, it can be quenched by spraying water or penetrating water. Thin wall parts (6 < 3mm) can also be air quenched. 3. Excellent welding performance and corrosion resistance, without stress corrosion cracking tendency. Among heat treatable aluminum alloys, Al Mg Si alloy is the only alloy without stress corrosion cracking. 4. After processing, the surface is very smooth and easy to anodize and stain. Its disadvantage is that if it is aged after quenching at room temperature for a period of time, it will have an adverse impact on the strength (parking effect).
