Differences Between Industrial Aluminum Profiles and Construction Aluminum Profiles

Aluminum profiles are generally used in the construction industry. Industrial profiles and construction profiles are both grade 6063 aluminum alloy, and their composition and content are the same. Although their mechanical properties are not much different, their differences in performance are obvious. Next, I will introduce the differences between industrial aluminum profiles and construction aluminum profiles:

1.The difference in cross-sectional shape

Most of the cross-sectional shapes of aluminum profiles used in the industrial field require a symmetrical structure and are relatively square in shape. Most of the aluminum profiles used in the construction field require asymmetric structures, and their curvature is also high.

2.Differences in wall thickness

The wall thickness of aluminum profiles used in the industrial field is larger than that of construction aluminum profiles, because construction aluminum profiles are used for low load-bearing coefficients, such as decoration of doors, windows, walls, etc., they are mostly used for decoration. The effect is that the wall thickness of industrial aluminum profiles is relatively thin, and the load-bearing capacity required by industrial aluminum profiles is relatively high. Most of them are used as supportive frames for equipment, so their wall thickness is thicker.

3.Differences in surface treatment processes

Architectural aluminum profiles are generally used for decoration, so more attention is paid to their aesthetics. There are also many surface treatment processes used, including spraying, electroplating, etc. The colors presented are also rich, while industrial aluminum profiles pay more attention to their appearance. Material properties, most can be used after oxidation treatment.
