Aluminum is categorized by grades:

  • Grade 1xxx series is pure aluminum and cannot be strengthened by heat.
  • Grade 2xxx series is alloyed with copper and is strengthened by heat-treating.
  • Grade 4xxx series is alloyed with silicon and is strengthened by heat-treating.
  • Grade 5xxx series is alloyed with magnesium and cannot be strengthened by heat
  • Grade 6xxx series is alloyed with silicon and magnesium and is strengthened by heat-treating

Examples of 1xxx Series Aluminum applications:

  • Chemical equipment
  • decorative parts
  • electrical conductors
  • food handling equipment
  • heat exchanger fins
  • jewelry components
  • lighting equipment
  • rivets
  • and utensils

Examples of 5xxx Series Aluminum applications:

  • Rivets for magnesium and screen wires
  • utensils
  • zippers
  • cable sheathings
  • nails
  • wire screens
  • fasteners
  • filters
  • wire mesh
  • hardware
  • cold heading
