Aluminum types and models of aluminum: aluminum is the general term for the group of alloys. The main alloying elements are copper, silicon, magnesium, zinc, manganese, minor alloying elements are nickel, iron, titanium, chromium, lithium and so on. Aluminum low density, but the intensity is relatively high, close to or more than high quality steel, plastic, it can be processed into a variety of profiles, with excellent electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance, widely used in industry, usage after the steel . Aluminum divided into two categories: cast aluminum alloy, in the case of using cast; deformation of aluminum alloy, can withstand pressure processing, mechanical properties than cast .

Processed into various forms, specifications of aluminum material. Mainly for the manufacture of aviation equipment, daily necessities, building doors and windows. Aluminum alloy by deformation processing methods can be divided into aluminum and cast aluminum. Deformation is divided into non-heat strengthened aluminum alloy and heat treatment strengthened aluminum alloy. Type can not be heat strengthened by heat treatment to improve mechanical properties, it can only be achieved by cold deformation strengthening, which includes high purity aluminum, industrial high purity aluminum, industrial aluminum and rust-proof aluminum.

Aluminum alloy can be heat strengthened to improve the mechanical properties by a quenching and aging heat treatment, it can be divided into hard aluminum, wrought aluminum, super-hard aluminum and special aluminum alloy. Aluminum heat treatment can be used to obtain good mechanical properties, physical properties and corrosion resistance. Cast aluminum alloy can be classified according to chemical composition of Al-Si alloys, aluminum-copper alloy, aluminum-magnesium alloy and aluminum-zinc alloy.
