The Difference between Industrial Aluminum Profiles and Architectural Aluminum Profiles

Aluminum profiles are generally used in the construction industry. Both are 6063 grade aluminum profiles, so the composition and content of their alloys are the same. Although their mechanical properties are not much different, the differences in performance are still relatively large. Next, we will introduce the differences between industrial aluminum profiles and construction aluminum profiles:

1.The difference in cross-sectional shape
Most of the cross-sectional shapes of aluminum profiles used in the industrial field require a symmetrical structure and relatively square in shape. While most of the aluminum profiles used in the construction field require asymmetric structures, and their curvature is also high.

2. Differences in wall thickness
The wall thickness of aluminum profiles used in the industrial field is larger than that of construction aluminum profiles, because aluminum profiles in the construction field are used for low load-bearing coefficients, such as decoration of doors, windows, walls, etc., so they are more for decoration. The effect is that the wall thickness of industrial aluminum profiles is relatively thin, and the load-bearing capacity required by industrial aluminum profiles is relatively high. Most of them are used as support frames for equipment, so their wall thickness is relatively high.

3. Differences in surface treatment processes
Architectural aluminum profiles are generally used for decoration, so more attention is paid to their aesthetics. There are also many surface treatment processes used, including spraying, electroplating, etc. The colors presented are also relatively plenty, while industrial aluminum profiles lay more emphasis on their appearance. Material properties, most can be used after oxidation treatment.
