Aluminium tread plates are normally used for more heavy-duty applications – that would include aerospace, military, transportation, and the like. These are industries that have highly specialized demands where Aluminium plate products (and custom Aluminium extrusions) very effectively meet the needs.
Aluminium plate has the capacity to be machined into a specific shape. It means that customized “skins” can be fabricated for such applications as jet planes and spacecraft. More than that, “skins” can be used for railway cars, storage tanks, and military armour. The industrial applications are unlimited.
LANREN is one of America’s leading suppliers of Aluminium plate. With a worldwide network of supplier manufacturers, LANREN offers customers a team of Aluminium experts with experience in every major industry. An efficient international logistics platform ensures “just-in-time” delivery.
The Properties of Aluminium Metal
Aluminium metal has extraordinary physical properties – which is why industrial applications are so varied and wide-ranging. The raw material is lightweight and pliable. It’s heat-resistant, corrosion-resistant, and fireproof. With so many unique properties it’s no wonder that application is so all-encompassing.
When it’s exposed to the elements, Aluminium will oxidize. But unlike rusting iron, Aluminium oxidation actually improves the quality of the metal (preventing further metal decay). Moreover, Aluminium can be combined with other metals to create Aluminium alloys – adding additional quality characteristics.
Alloys are designed to enhance the natural properties of Aluminium. Alloys can increase the strength of Aluminium, improve pliability, and enhance corrosion resistance. There are also other manufacturing options that can boost the conductivity of Aluminium. Here again, fabrication options are endless.
