The Versatility and Durability of Nortem Aluminum Plates
Aluminum plates are highly versatile and widely used in various industries due to their exceptional properties. Whether you’re an engineer, a manufacturer, or a consumer, understanding the benefits and applications of aluminum plates can help you make informed decisions. In this comprehensive guide, we delve into the world of aluminum plates, exploring their versatility, durability, and the myriad of industries they serve.
Properties of Aluminum Plates:
- Lightweight yet sturdy: Aluminum plates offer a remarkable strength-to-weight ratio, making them ideal for applications where weight reduction is crucial.
- Corrosion resistance: Aluminum naturally forms a protective oxide layer, preventing rust and corrosion even in harsh environments. Request to Quote
Applications of Aluminum Plates:
- Aluminum plates are extensively used in aircraft manufacturing, where their lightweight nature helps improve fuel efficiency without compromising strength.
- From car bodies to engine components, aluminum plates play a pivotal role in the automotive sector. They contribute to fuel economy, crash safety, and overall vehicle performance.
Manufacturing and Finishing Processes:
- Casting and rolling: Aluminum plates are produced through casting molten aluminum into ingots, which are then hot-rolled into desired thicknesses and shapes.
- Surface treatment: Aluminum plates can undergo various surface treatments, including anodizing, powder coating, and polishing, to enhance their appearance, corrosion resistance, and durability.
Aluminum Plates are made from solid aluminum. This paneling system is sustainable, reliable, fire-resistant and non combustible. Panels are available in numerous colors and finishes and are the material of choice for flat cladding systems.
Nortem is able to create custom perforated patterns and shapes on 3mm non combustible Aluminum plates with our millimeter accurate CNC machine and other latest fabrication technology.
Aluminum Plate made from solid aluminum sheets. This material is dependable and has superior durability compared to the common high-gauge Aluminum Panels available in the market. Aluminum plates are in compliance with many fire-code standards and are considered to be one of the top sustainable cladding material in the construction industry. NORTEM provides plate panels in numerous colors and finishes. In specific projects, aluminum plate panel systems are preferable over Aluminum Composite Material (ACM) due to the fire-codes compliance and Eco-friendly solution.
Aluminum plate is a flexible system that allows the option of clean flat lines or curvilinear construction involving bending. 1/8″ (3mm) Aluminum Plate is typically the material of choice for very complex shapes requiring seamless detailing as well as smaller projects requiring customized or unique colors.
Some of its key advantages for perforated plate are:
- High resistance to environmental elements
- Increases acoustic performance
- Lightweight (easy mounting to a variety of indoor and outdoor surfaces)
- Aesthetically appealing
- Physically strong
If your design requires a small quantity of metal cladding in a custom color, Aluminum Composite Panels would be a better economical solution than the Aluminum Plates.
Aluminum plate is also a viable option for special projects where higher impact resistance is a priority. Aluminum plate panels are also a great option for high-rise building fascia, commercial applications, canopies and balconies.
NORTEM’s Aluminum Plate wall Systems is tested with: AAMA 508-07, ASTM E 283, ASTM E 330, ASTM E 331 standards.
