Advantages of Aluminum Sheets in Marine Application

Because marine grade aluminum sheet metal has special requirements on strength, corrosion resistance, weldability, etc., Al-Mg, Al-Mg-Si and Al-Zn-Mg aluminum sheets are mostly used. Of them , Al-Mg aluminum alloy is more widely used.

Why is the aluminum alloy so popular in the manufacturing of ships? This is owed to the outstanding performances of marine grade aluminum sheet.

1. Because of its small specific gravity, it can reduce the weight of the ship,the capacity of the single engine and the fuel consumption. At the same time, it can improve speed, the aspect ratio of the ship and the stability and increase the load capacity to obtain additional profits.

2. Due to its good corrosion resistance, it can reduce maintenance costs such as oiling and can extend the service life (usually more than 20 years).

3. Marine aluminum alloy has good processing and forming performance, which is easy to cut, stamp, bend,etc., and is helpful for decreasing the number of welds.

4. It has good welding performance, which is easy to weld.

5. It has small elastic modulus, which can absorb large impact stress, ensuring ship safety.

6. Aluminum scrap has high recycling value.

7. Without low temperature brittleness, it is most suitable for low temperature equipment.

8. The marine grade aluminum plate is without magnetism, the all-aluminum boat can avoid mine attacks and is suitable for making minesweeper.

9. It has no burning, which is safer in case of fire.
