Aluminum Rolled Plates - High Strength
For extremely stresses components.
High-strength Aluminum Rolled Plates are often used for applications where the strength of Aluminum Cast Plates is (supposedly) not sufficient.
For thinner rolled this is absolutely correct but for plates with an increasing thickness it has to be considered that due to the mechanical processing during the production of rolled material, a loss of strength from the plate border in direction to the center arises. This effects that in core areas of the plate the strength values of rolled material is lower then of aluminum cast material (depending on the thickness).
Our product range of high-strength aluminum rolled material includes three products. On the one hand we offer the very well-established alloy EN AW 7075 and on the other hand we have the very high quality products Certal® and Certal® SPC. Certal® SPC is a special product which can be recommended for higher material thicknesses and it is often used for mold making because the loss of core strength was counteracted.
