Aluminum Plate Applications
Nov 10, 2017

Plate is used in heavy-duty applications such as those found in the aerospace, 

military and transportation product manufacturing. Aluminum plate, machined to shape, 

forms the skins of jets and spacecraft fuel tanks. It is used for storage tanks in many industries,

in part because some aluminum alloys become tougher at supercold temperatures. This property

is especially useful in holding cryogenic (very-low-temperature) materials. Plate is also used to 

manufacture structural sections for railcars and ships, as well as armor for military vehicles.
