What is the difference between industrial aluminum profiles and architectural aluminum profiles？
Industrial aluminium profiles and architectural aluminium profiles belong to the 6063-grade aluminum profiles, so their alloy composition and alloy content are the same, so there is no difference in mechanical properties between industrial aluminium profiles and architectural aluminum profiles.
Industrial aluminium profiles, also known as industrial aluminium alloy profiles, are alloy materials with aluminium as the main component, and aluminium bars with different cross-sectional shapes are obtained by hot-melting extrusion.
Architectural aluminium profiles are architectural products made of aluminium and aluminium alloys. Usually, it is first processed into castings, forgings, plates, strips, tubes, bars, profiles, etc., and then processed by cold bending, sawing, drilling, assembly, and coloring.
Application fields of industrial aluminium profiles and architectural aluminium profiles:
Industrial aluminium profiles are mainly used in aerospace, rail transit, mechanical equipment, electronic products, and aluminium profiles required for general industrial production.
Architectural aluminium profiles are mainly used in construction, mainly for doors, windows, and curtain walls.
Features of industrial aluminium profiles and architectural aluminium profiles:
Industrial aluminium profiles have good mechanical properties, welding properties, surface treatment properties, turning properties, corrosion resistance, electrical and thermal conductivity, etc. And there are different performance requirements in different fields, which are also diverse and changing.
Architectural aluminium profiles have temporal stability, durability, wind pressure resistance, ease of processing, decoration, economy, and environmental protection. There are also specific requirements for these mechanical, physical, and chemical properties. However, the requirements of architectural aluminium profiles are generally universal and general, and their performance requirements are relatively consistent in different regions and different occasions, so there are established and strict national standards.
