The future trend of aluminum profiles
may replace traditional building materials, mainly reflected in:
1. Buildings made of aluminum profiles are not only rapid prototyping, but also cost-effective. Concrete usually requires a lot of formwork and curing time compared to concrete.
2. The aluminum profile bridge deck is 80% lighter than concrete, and does not need to strengthen the supporting bridge elements. The aluminum profile manufacturer can also provide additional bridge width and capacity without increasing the bridge load. Corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy decks require no paint and minimal maintenance, and are better suited than steel or concrete where de-icing chemicals can be used.
3. The low temperature toughness of aluminum makes it an ideal structural material for roads and bridges in cold climates. In the united states and europe, aluminum also has new, easy-to-repair properties. In north america, bridges with aluminum decks or superstructures were originally built in the 1940s. More than 50 aluminum alloy bridges have been built in europe, and this number is increasing year by year. Since aluminum is lighter than steel and concrete, it doesn't rust and doesn't require painting or protective coatings, which reduces maintenance and installation time, which in turn reduces costs. These are clear advantages that aluminum has over other materials.
4. Aluminum is an ideal material, which is a movable bridge, bridge and narrow deck of the road. Since seismic force is proportional to weight, aluminum is also an excellent bridge seismic reinforcement. The new aluminum panel system requires factory prefabrication, welding, and prefabricated aluminum deck panels can be installed faster than other systems without on-site welding.
