Aluminum plate for yachts building
Why Choose Marine Aluminium Sheet for Yacht-shipbuilding
Yachts are high-end durable consumer goods for water entertainment. It integrates navigation, sports, entertainment, leisure and other functions to meet the needs of individuals and families to enjoy life. Marine aluminum sheet is one of the main materials for yacht-shipbuilding. It has the following advantages:
Durable: Aluminum will not rust, corrode or rot, and can withstand temperatures of minus 200°C, which means that your aluminum alloy yacht can withstand harsh weather wherever it goes.
Light weight and strong anti-shock ability: The yachts made of aluminum alloy have faster speeds and consume less fuel due to light weight. At the same time, aluminum has excellent strength and anti-shock ability, making aluminum boats more resistant to foreign objects than other materials.
Safety: Safety at sea is the primary consideration for every shipowner. Aluminum will not burn or catch fire in the atmosphere. Given the advantages and functionality provided by aluminum, many navies and coast guards use aluminum boats.
Long service life: If the suitable aluminum alloy and welding wire are used and the ships are of standard construction and regular maintenance, an aluminum yacht can last for decades.
High comfort: Aluminum yachts are much stronger than wooden or fiberglass yachts. Because of this, aluminum yachts can make you feel a quieter sailing experience.
Alloys of Marine Grade Aluminum for Yachts
The main two alloys for making yachts a re 5052 and 5083 aluminum sheets. Marine grade aluminum 5083 has high magnesium content, which is more brittle and hard, but has better corrosion resistance and higher strength than 5052 aluminum plate. 5052 aluminum sheet has better molding performance, and is better for pressing.
The small yachts in freshwater lake are generally made of 5052H32 aluminum sheet and 5052 O aluminum sheet for the fresh water is not as corrosive as sea water. Almost all marine yachts are luxury yachts. Due to the strong corrosiveness of seawater, they are generally made of 5083H116 or 5083H321 aluminum sheet.
In order to adapt to the sea water environment and beautiful appearance, some ship building factory will use 5083 aluminum as the lower part of the boat (underwater part) and 5052 as the upper part of the boat.
