What Is Bendable Aluminum Strip

Aluminum is a deep-processed product formed by slitting aluminum coils. According to the different alloy elements contained in the aluminum strip, the aluminum strip also has 8 series. However, the commonly used series are 1000, 3000, 5000 and 8000 series. The alloy grades are 1050, 1060, 1070, 1100, 3003, 3004, 5005, 5052, 8011, etc.

The specific uses of the bendable aluminum strip mainly include: aluminum strips for transformers, aluminum strip for window spacer, aluminum strips for fin radiators, aluminum strips for cables, aluminum strips for stamping, aluminum strips for aluminum edging,etc. Which factors will affect the bending performance of aluminum strips?

The hardness of the aluminum strip is a key factor that influences if it will crack during bending. If hardness of the aluminum plate is too high, it will easily crack. The hardness of the aluminum strip is related to the grade and tempers of the aluminum strip. Usually, 1000 series, 3000 series and 5000 series are often used for bending. The 6 series and 7 series have high hardness, which are not used for bending. If they are bent, they must be annealed to the O temper before they can be bent.

The hardness of pure aluminum is not very high. 1050, 1060, 1070, 1100 aluminum strip all of good bending performance. 3000 series aluminum-manganese alloys like 3003, 3005 and 3a21 are also often used. 5052 H32 aluminum strip is the most commonly used for bending among the 5000 series and it will not crack when bent at 90 degrees.

The aluminum strip tempers can be divided into full hard, semi hard and soft temper. For example, H18, H19 and H38 are all full hard. The bending effect of the full hard is basically not very good. Aluminum strips in a semi-rigid state can basically be bent, such as H24. The flexible aluminum strip can be bent easily. Haomei Aluminum has complete series of aluminum strips for sale.
