8081 Aluminum Scrap

Aluminum 8081 is most commonly used in the manufacturing of components in the automotive, aerospace, and construction industries. In comparison to other aluminum alloys, 8081 stands out for its high tin content, resulting in a much denser material. With its excellent corrosion resistance and superior anti-friction properties, heat treating this material renders it an ideal choice for those applications that necessitate enhanced strength and extended durability.

Our 8081 aluminum scrap is collected from the best sources and sorted for purity. We collect aluminum scrap that is removed during the production process from manufacturing plants. Each order is carefully inspected for quality before being shipped out, ensuring you get exactly what you need. With our extensive inventory, we can provide you with the aluminum scrap you need in any quantity.

Our bulk orders are competitively priced to help you save money on your project materials. We can also provide customized packaging solutions to further reduce costs. Order from us today and get the aluminum scrap that fits your needs!

Aluminum Alloy 8081

High Tensile Strength And Corrosion Resistance

The high tin content in Aluminum 8081 that makes it notably dense offers higher strength and toughness while also providing superior fatigue resistance and corrosion protection. Its anti-friction capabilities are even more remarkable, making it the ideal choice for automotive bearings applications.

Can Undergo Heat Treatment And Tempering

Heat treatment can further enhance the strength of 8081 aluminum alloy. This makes it suitable for a variety of applications including mechanical components, automotive parts, and aerospace components. The tempering process utilizes high temperatures (300-500 C) to change the structure of the alloy, thus reinforcing its structural integrity and enhancing its overall mechanical capabilities.

Manufacturing Flexibility

Not only is 8081 aluminum highly workable and machinable, but it also has incredible weldability properties. As a result, you can easily transform the 8081 coils we provide into whatever shape they need them to be for your project. Moreover, this alloy can also be extruded to create any cross-sectional profile desired – perfect for all kinds of applications!

Ability To Make Composite Materials

8081 can be fused together with other materials to produce composite substances that have heightened properties like strength, resilience, and temperature resistance while being less dense than typical material. Composite components made from 8081 have several users, particularly in the automotive and aerospace industries.

Can Aluminum Alloy Rust?

Aluminum alloys contain almost no traces of iron, so these metals are impervious to rust. As soon as the alloy is exposed to water, an aluminum oxide film forms quickly on its surface that acts like a shield and protects it from further damage. This hard layer prevents any corrosion or oxidation underneath and keeps the alloy safe.

What Is the Life Expectancy of Aluminum Alloy?

Aluminum is renowned for its impressive longevity, with end-use lasting decades. In the construction industry specifically, aluminum has been proven to have a service life of up to 60 years – making it one of the most dependable materials available.
