Aluminium grades we usually work with:

Aluminium EN AW-2007

Alternative designations and standarts: 3.1645; EN 573-3; AlCu4PbMgMn

The closest equivalents: ANSI AA2007, AlCuMgPb, A1050

General characteristics: Light, durable and functional: these are the qualities that make aluminium one of the key engineering materials of our time. This alu 2007 grade is among alloys for high speed automatic lathes and, same as 2030, has the highest mechanical characteristics. It is selected when a good combination of machinability and high mechanical properties is needed. It also has low corrosion resistance; so it's usually good to have a protective anodizing after part machining.

Applications: Bolts, nuts, threaded bars, screws. Presented literally in every industry.

Aluminium EN AW-5082

Alternative designations: 3.3345, UNS A95082, Al-Mg4

General characteristics: Aluminium 5082 aluminum is a 5000-series aluminum alloy: it is an alloy that can be hardened by cold work: it is not heat treatable to higher strength. 5082 grade is in the middle through the series of aluminium alloys for content and strength.

Aluminium EN AW-5083

Alternative designations and standarts: 3.3547; Alloy 5083; EN 573-3; UNS A95083; ASTM B209; AlMg4.5Mn0.7

General characteristics: 5083 aluminium alloy is an aluminium alloy with magnesium and traces of manganese and chromium. It is highly resistant to attack by seawater and industrial chemicals. Alloy 5083 retains exceptional strength after welding. It has the highest strength of the non-heat treatable alloys, but is not recommended for use in temperatures in excess of 65°C.

Applications: This alloy 5083 is used almost universally in all production industries because of its many beneficial properties. Its resistance to seawater makes it great for marine applications. The relatively low formability of the alloy limits the complexity of the shapes that can be extruded, but simple hollow shapes are possible. Also, the typical applications could be some pressure equipment, low temperature applications (e.g. cryogenic equipment) or welded constructions.

Aluminium EN AW-5754

Alternative designations and standarts: 3.3535; Alloy 5754; EN 573-3; UNS A95754; ASTM B 209; Al-Mg3

General characteristics: 5754 is an alloy in the wrought aluminium – magnesium family (5000 or 5xxx series). It is closely related to the alloys 5154 and 5454 (Aluminum Association designations that only differ in the second digit are variations on the same alloy). Of these three 5x54 alloys, 5754 is the least alloyed (has highest composition % of aluminium), but only by a small amount. As a wrought alloy, it can be formed by rolling, extrusion, and forging, but not casting. It can be cold worked to produce tempers with a higher strength but a lower ductility.

Applications: All these alloys (5754, 5154, 5454) are used in similar applications. They have excellent corrosion resistance especially to seawater and industrially polluted atmospheres. This high strength makes 5754 highly suited to flooring applications. So, the 5754 is typically used in: Treadplate, Shipbuilding, Vehicle bodies, Rivets, Fishing industry equipment, Food processing, Welded chemical and nuclear structures.

Aluminium EN AW-6060

Alternative designations and standarts: 3.3206; ISO 6361; UNS A96060; ASTM B 221; AlMgSi0,5

General characteristics: Aluminium alloy 6060 is a medium strength heat treatable alloy with a strength slightly lower than 6005A. It has very good corrosion resistance, very good weldability and good cold formability. It is also suitable for anodizing. 6060 is an alloy in the wrought aluminium-magnesium-silicon family (6000 or 6xxx series). It is much more closely related to the alloy 6063 than to 6061.

Applications: The application of 6060 alloys is also wide: it is used in the construction industry, engineering, automotive engineering, food industry, medical and many more.

Aluminium EN AW-6061

Alternative designations and standarts: 3.3211; UNS A96061; ASTM B209; Al Mg1 Si Cu

General characteristics: Aluminium alloy 6061 is a medium strength aerospace aluminium alloy with, depending upon temper, Yield Strength of up to 35 ksi (240 MPa) and Tensile Strength of 42 ksi (290 MPa). It has good mechanical properties, exhibits good weldability, and is very commonly extruded (second in popularity only to 6063). Usually it is available in a range of tempers, e.g. in pre-tempered grades such as 6061-O (annealed), tempered grades such as 6061-T6 (solutionized and artificially aged) and 6061-T651 (solutionized, stress-relieved stretched and artificially aged).

Applications: It is one of the most common alloys of aluminum for general-purpose use. It is widely used in aerospace industry, yachts and boats construction, automotive parts, packaging food and beverages and many many more.

Aluminium EN AW-6082

Alternative designations and standarts: 3.2315; UNS A96082; H30; AlSi1MgMn

General characteristics: 6082 aluminium alloy is an alloy in the wrought aluminium-magnesium-silicon family (6000 or 6xxx series). It is typically formed by extrusion and rolling, but as a wrought alloy it is not used in casting. It is highly workable and weldable, has very good corrosion resistance. 6082 can also be forged and clad, but that is not common practice with this alloy. It cannot be work hardened but is commonly heat treated to produce tempers with a higher strength but lower ductility.

Applications: The alloy EN AW-6082 is a high strength alloy for highly loaded structural applications. Typical applications are scaffolding elements, rail coach parts, offshore constructions, containers, machine building and mobile cranes. Due to the fine grained structure this alloy exhibits a good resistance to dynamic loading conditions. EN AW-6082 is certified for use in marine applications.

Aluminium EN AW-7075

Alternative designations and standarts: 3.4365; UNS A96082; H30; Al-Zn6MgCu

General characteristics: 7075 aluminium alloy is an alloy with zinc as the primary alloying element. It is strong, with a strength comparable to many steel alloys, and has good fatigue strength and average machinability. It has very good resistance to weather and seawater, but it's not solderable and not suitable for welding, except resistance welding. It also has poor cold forming properties.

Applications: Due to their high strength-to-density ratio 7075, as well as 7000 series in general, are often used in transport applications, including marine, automotive and aviation. These same properties lead to its use in rock climbing equipment, bicycle and hang glider frames, RC models, etc. It is also widely used in weaponry, for example, 7075 is used in the manufacturing of M16 rifles for the American military, in Desert Tactical Arms, SIG Sauer, PGM rifles. Due to its high strength, low density, thermal properties, and its ability to be highly polished, 7075 is widely used in mold tool manufacturing. This alloy has been further refined into other 7000 series alloys for this application, namely 7050 and 7020.
