Name Usage
EN AC-2007
EN AC-6082
EN AW-1050A

It is the most pure form of aluminium and the most common plate alloy. The alloy has a good property regarding bending and welding, and it is suitable for surface treatment.

It contains 99.5 % aluminium, and they mainly produce it in thickness from 0.5 mm - 6 mm.

EN AW-2007

A copper alloy that typically contains between 4.0 and 5.0 % copper, and it is suitable for producing machine parts, bolts and rivets. It looks very much like EN AW-2011, but it is yet a bit harder. It is a short-chipped alloy, which is suitable for treatment, threads and high machining speeds. The alloy has a low corrosion resistance and is not suitable for welding because of the high content of copper. It is not approved by the ROHS.

EN AW-2011

A copper alloy that typically contains between 4.0 and 5.0 % copper, and it is suitable for producing machine parts, bolts and rivets. It looks very much like an EN AW-2007, but it is a bit softer. It is a short-chipped alloy, which is suitable for treatment, threads and high machining speeds and gives a shiny surface after treatment. It has a high strength against metal fatigue. The alloy has an inferior corrosion resistance, and it is not suitable for welding because of the high content of copper. It is possibly approved after the ROHS.

EN AW-2014

A copper alloy that typically contains between 4.0 and 5.0 % copper. It is a short-chipped alloy, which is suitable for treatment, and it has a high strength and is thereby as EN AW-2011 and EN AW-2007. It is harder than an EN AW-2011. Typically, you use the alloy for military purposes and for the aviation industry. It is approved after the ROHS. 

EN AW-2017A

A copper alloy with a high content of copper. It is a short-chipped alloy, which is suitable for treatment. The alloy has a low corrosion resistance, and it is not suitable for welding because of the high content of copper. It is not suitable for decorative anodising

EN AW-2024

A copper alloy with high content of copper. It is a short-chipped alloy, which is suitable for treatment. The alloy has a low corrosion resistance, and it is not suitable for welding because of the high content of copper. It is not suitable for decorative anodizing. 

EN AW-3003

A manganese alloy with a high corrosion resistance. The alloy has an average strength and is suitable for welding and bending.

EN AW-3005

A manganese alloy with a high corrosion resistance. The alloy has an average strength and is suitable for welding and bending.

EN AW-3103

A manganese alloy with a high corrosion resistance. The alloy has an average strength and is suitable for welding and bending.

EN AW-3105

A manganese alloy with a high corrosion resistance. The alloy has an average strength and is suitable for welding and bending.

EN AW-5005

It is good for machining and bending and has a high corrosion resistance and good for welding. The alloy is very suitable for decorative anodizing.

EN AW-5005A

It is good for machining and bending and has a high corrosion resistance and good for welding. The alloy is very suitable for decorative anodising.

EN AW-5052

It is easy processing and has a high corrosion resistance and good for welding. The alloy is not suitable for decorative anodising. 

EN AW-5083

It is sea water resistant and has an average strength, high corrosion resistance and good for welding Medium for anodizing

 

EN AW-5083 Cast

A moulded and less tensed alloy and its extremely suitable for machining.  We stock the alloy with two different surfaces. One with surface milling cut and foil, and suitable, when no finish of the thickness is needed. The other one is not treated and therefore, it is the most suitable for project, where all sides will be treated. Remember that we have a servicecenter that offers sawing on the dimensions that you need.

 

EN AW-5086

It is sea water resistant and has an average strength, high corrosion resistance and good for welding Medium for anodizing.

EN AW-5754

It is sea water resistant and has an average strength, high corrosion resistance and good for welding Medium for anodizing.

EN AW-5754 Cast
EN AW-6005A

It is an alloy with an average corrosion resistance and good for welding. The alloy strength is higher than the one of EN AW-6063.

EN AW-6026

It is a short-chipped alloy with a high strength and average corrosion resistance and medium for welding. Medium for anodizing.  

EN AW-6060

Is suitable for anodizing, and has a high corrosion resistance and good for anodizing. The alloy is suitable for welding.

EN AW-6061

Is suitable for anodizing, and has a high corrosion resistance and good for anodizing. The alloy is suitable for welding.

EN AW-6063

Is suitable for anodizing, and has a high corrosion resistance and good for anodizing. The alloy is suitable for welding.

EN AW-6073

Is a variant of the EN AW-6082, and it is better for anodizing than EN AW-6082, since the aluminium with this alloy gets a more homogeneous surface.  

EN AW-6082

Has a high strength and a good corrosion resistance. The alloy is good for welding, and you can anodize it. 

EN AW-6101B

Is suitable for ornamental anodizing, and has a high corrosion resistance and good for anodizing. The alloy is suitable for welding.

EN AW-7010

Is a short-chipped alloy with a very high strength. The alloy has a low corrosion resistance and a low welding- and anodizing level.

EN AW-7020

Is a short-chipped alloy with a very high strength. The alloy has a low corrosion resistance and a low welding- and anodizing level.

EN AW-7021
EN AW-7075

Is a short-chipped alloy with a very high strength. The alloy has a low corrosion resistance and a low welding- and anodizing level.

Hokotol

Has a high strength alloy with a high strength though all the plate thickness. The alloy has a low corrosion resistance and a strength as high as several steel variants. Is usable for aircraft's, military purposes and plastic-moulded forms (welded 7075). The advantage by HOKOTOL is that the material does not change properties under the machining.

Weldural

Used where demands for tensile strength combined with high temperature are high
