Aluminum has many good properties such as low density, good electrical conductivity, good thermal conductivity, good reflectivity, strong corrosion resistance, good ductility, low melting point and good casting performance. Aluminum products have many product advantages such as energy saving and environmental protection, light weight, corrosion resistance, quick assembly.


Due to the above-mentioned advantages of aluminum and its products, coupled with the abundant reserves of aluminum, aluminum is widely used in modern industry, whether they are pots and pans, household appliances, or infrastructure construction, aerospace, transportation, aluminum and its products exist in various fields of industries. Today we mainly talk about the application of aluminum in bellowing fields of industry.

Aluminum uses in construction industry

Construction Industry: Aluminum is durable, corrosion-resistant, and lighter than steel. One of its earliest uses was in construction. And after the aluminum product is surface-treated, it looks exquisite. Aluminum products are widely used in construction industry; such as aluminum doors and windows, structural parts, decorative panels, aluminum veneers, curtain walls, skylights, partitions, decorations, etc. According to the statistic, nearly half of aluminum alloys are used in the construction industry. High-rise buildings are particularly favored to use aluminum alloys because of its superior weight-to-strength ratio, which is a core value material for high-rise buildings and skyscrapers. You know, if a skyscraper uses steel, its dead weight will be much larger, which requires a deeper building foundation, which invisibly increases the construction cost.

Aluminum window frames are durable and economical, making them the first choice for homes and offices. It's also lightweight and shock-resistant, which works well against in typhoon and strong storms. One of the benefits of using aluminum for window frames is that it is cheaper than wood and less expensive to maintain. And more resistant to scratches, cracks and damage. However, a major disadvantage of using aluminum frames is that they are not as energy efficient as wood, nor do they provide the same level of insulation.

Aluminum uses in packing industry

Packaging industry: All-aluminum cans are the most popular packaging material in the global packaging industry, and cigarette packaging is the largest user of aluminum foil. Aluminum foil is also widely used in other packaging industries such as candy, medicine, toothpaste, and cosmetics.

Aluminum uses in electronic industry

Aluminum is widely used in the electronic industry, such as radios, extenders, televisions, capacitors, potentiometers, speakers and other civil products and basic equipment, and a large amount of aluminum is used in radars, tactical missiles and military add-ons.

Aluminum uses in electrical industry:

Aluminum products, because of their lightness and convenience, are suitable for shell protection of various electronic products. Aluminum is used to make precision tubing for refrigerators and air conditioners—and it's not just this part that uses it, of course. Many home washers, dryers, dishwashers and other appliances are also designed with aluminum frames. An excellent application of aluminum is in refrigeration and freezing appliances, which are characterized by enhanced cooling and efficient cooling. Modern refrigerators wouldn't be able to cool so well without the excellent thermal conductivity of aluminum.

Aluminum uses in transportation industry

Road and rail transportation:

Aluminum alloy have the advantages of light weight, energy saving, environmental protection, and corrosion resistance. It is mainly used in automobile manufacturing and rail transportation, such as: automobile frames, automobile doors and windows, engine casings, and parts, high-speed rail car bodies and structural frames, etc.

Air transportation:

Human beings can fly first thanks to the use of aluminum, which has been used in the aviation industry since the Wright brothers used it to make the engine crankcase for their first wood-frame biplane. Because aluminum is comparable in strength to steel and much lighter than steel, the use of aluminum in aircraft construction allows for a lighter aircraft, allowing it to carry more cargo and passengers, while also improving fuel efficiency. Aluminum's high corrosion resistance also helps ensure the safety of aircraft and passengers, which is one of its most fundamental safeguards in air travel.

Aluminum uses in automobile manufacturing industry

Automobile manufacturing industry: Nowadays, automobile manufacturers are more and more interested in aluminum, and aluminum is more and more widely used in automobiles. Aluminum has its own place in the field of automobile manufacturing.

Compared with the traditional body, the car using the AI intelligent modular all-aluminum alloy body platform has stronger rigidity and lighter weight, and the fuel efficiency and body handling have been greatly improved. The weight of the car has also been significantly reduced.

Aluminum uses in medical industry

Due to its advantages of light weight and corrosion resistance, aluminum profiles are also very suitable for medical treatment, such as stretchers, medical equipment, medical beds, etc.

Aluminum uses in chemical industry

Chemical industry: Aluminum is favored because of its excellent comprehensive properties, high hardness, high strength, and strong corrosion resistance and wear resistance. Therefore, many industrial frames choose to use aluminum alloy as the material.

Aluminum used in the chemical field are as follows:

1 Chemistry workbench. Workbench specially designed for use in chemical environments.

2 Protective fence. Chemical equipment and other protective cover protective fence.

3 Clean sheds. Special clean space stations, clean sheds for chemical workplaces.

The above types are also used in other fields, but the frameworks in other fields can be replaced by other materials, but less in the field of chemistry. Because the chemical field has very high requirements for surface corrosion protection, general materials cannot replace it.

The above is the facts that aluminum uses in various fields of industry. HDT Tubing can provide various aluminum products, such as aluminum tube, aluminum plate, aluminum coil and aluminum rod. Customers can choose according to their different requirements.
