How to Choose your Aluminum Alloy Series


Updated: 3 Aug 2021
Suppose aluminum alloys are classified according to common series. In that case, they can be divided into six aluminum alloy series: 1 series, 2 series, 3 series, 5 series, 6 series, and 7 series. Each aluminum alloy series has different uses, such as food industry, packaging industry, industry, building, home decoration, etc. Shenghai Aluminum Profiles supplier lists each series's detailed specifications and application to facilitate customers choosing the appropriate aluminum alloy series specifications.

1. Aluminium Alloy 1 Series
1 series aluminum alloy specifications are divided into 1050, 1060, 1100, 1145, 1199, 1350 and others. The use environment of each specification of aluminum alloy products is different. For example, 1050 specification is mainly used in food or packaging industry. The 1060 specification is used in chemical industry, and the 1350 specification is used in transformer.

2. Aluminum Alloy 2 Series
2 series aluminum alloy specifications are divided into: 2011, 2014, 2017, 2024, 2036, 2048, 2124, 2218, 2219, 2319, 2618, 2A01, 2A02, 2A06, 2A10, 2A11, 2A12, 2A14, 2A16, 2A17, 2A50, 2A60, 2A70, 2A80, 2A90, etc. Due to the high strength and corrosion resistance of the 2 series, many specifications of the 2 series are generally used in the automotive, high-speed rail or aerospace components.

3. Aluminum Alloy 3 Series
The main specifications of the 3 series aluminum alloys are 3003, 3004, 3105, etc. They are mainly used in packaging and construction industries—for example, cans, chemical storage containers, partition houses, mobile houses, etc.

4. Aluminum Alloy 5 Series
The specifications of 5 series aluminum alloy are: 5005, 5050, 5052, 5056, 5083, 5086, 5154, 5182, 5252, 5254, 5356, 5454, 5456, 5457, 5652, 5657, 5A02, 5A03, 5A05, 5A06, etc. The specifications of 5 series are mainly used in ships, vessels, pressure vessels, marine pipelines, aircraft skeletons, etc.

5. Aluminum Alloy 6 Series
The specifications of 6 series aluminum alloy are 6005, 6010, 6061, 6063, 6066, 6070, 6101, 6151, 6201, 6205, 6262, 6463, 6A02, etc. The commonly used specifications are mainly 6005 and 6063. Because 6 series can be produced by custom extrusion molding. So 6 series products are basically aluminum extrusions profiles. 6 series aluminium has many specifications, the commonly used specifications are: 20 series (2020, 2020R, 2040, 2060, 2080); 30 series (3030, 3030R, 3030-2N90, 3030-2N180, 3060, 30150, 6060); 40 Series (4040, 4040R, 4040-2N90, 4040-2N180, 4060, 4080, 40120, 40160, 8080, 80120); 45 series (4545, 4545R, 4545-2N90, 4545-2N180, 4560, 4590, 9090); 50 Series (5050, 50100, 100100); 60 series (6060, etc.).
6 series application main include aluminum profiles for door & window, aluminium profile for kitchen & wardrobe cabinets, extruded aluminum heat sink, aluminum tile/floor/carpet edge trim, aluminum profile for led strip lighting, slotted aluminium extrusion, etc.
