Food industry

Rolled plates made of EN AW 6082 are safe in contact with food in accordance with EN 602:2004. For this reason, this material is used in a variety of applications in industrial plants of the food industry.

Expert tip

The tolerances for thickness and flatness are very wide in rolled plates. For example, a 20 mm thick plate has a thickness tolerance of ± 0.03 in. The flatness is specified as a percentage and is calculated longitudinally (always in the rolling direction!) and in width (always transverse to the rolling direction!). A 0.8 in. thick slab in format 59.8 x 118.9 in. may vary by 0.2% = 0.24 in. in width from the flatness.

In comparison, G.AL® C250 in 0.8 in. thickness: thickness tolerance: ± 0.004 in., flatness: 0.005 in.
