8081 aluminum has many properties that make it very useful in the manufacture of components for the automotive, aerospace, and construction industries. Our customers request this specific alloy for its high strength, fatigue resistance, and toughness. The high composition of tin makes 8081 much denser than other alloys of aluminum. 8081 is also known for its ability to undergo heat treatment, its corrosion resistance, and how it can be used to produce composite materials.
At Inquivix Technologies, we supply industrial-grade 8081 in gauge, width, length, and tempering as specified by our customers. We utilize state-of-the-art facilities with strict quality control procedures to ensure all our aluminum products are manufactured to the industry standard and meet client expectations. Our products can be customized to suit specific industrial applications and can be shipped anywhere in the world.

Other Aluminum Alloys Used For Coil
8081 is one of the alloys of aluminum which contains a high amount of tin in its composition. This composition makes 8081 much denser than other alloys, making it very strong, resistant to fatigue, and in general very tough. 8081 is very workable and has high corrosion resistance. Its strength can also be through heat treatment and by using it to form composite materials.
The impressive strength, fatigue resistance, as well as various other characteristics of 8081 aluminum, make it very useful in automotive, aerospace, defense, and construction industries.
