European standards: Extruded aluminum rods, stripes, and pipe profiles

terms

Technical terms in the extruded aluminum products, which are used in European Standards, established in a special international document [1].

Rod

Solid wood moldings with a circular cross-section. Usually it delivered in straight lengths. Often, instead of the term «rod» uses the term «round bar». Corresponds to the term "round bar" (GOST 21488-97). When delivered in coils it is called the «wire», ie, "wire".

Bar

Solid wood moldings with a cross section in the form of a square, rectangle, regular hexagon or a regular octagon. Usually it delivered in straight lengths. When delivered in coils it is called the «wire», ie, "wire".

Products with a cross section in the form of a square and a regular hexagon respective products, which in domestic standards are called, respectively, "square bar" and "hexagonal bar" (GOST 21488-97).

For products with a cross section in the form of a rectangle, whose height is less than its width is used, the term "band" or, more formal, "Rectangular strip-shaped profile" (GOST 13616-97). Electrical products made of grades of aluminum and aluminum alloys AD31 and AD31E can also be called "tires" (GOST 15176-89).

Tube

The hollow molded products, which has a cross section in the form of a cavity with a constant wall thickness, supplied in straight lengths or coils. The cross section may have a circular shape, oval, square, rectangle, equilateral triangle or a regular polygon. The inner and outer cross-sections should be concentric and have the same shape and orientation. The inner and outer corners can be rounded. the term "round tube" is used to round pipes, for all others - "shaped pipe" (according to the customer's drawings) (GOST 18482-79), and "square tube", "Rectangular tube," etc.. P.

Profile

molded products, whose cross section has a shape different from that of the sheet, plate, tight, stripes, tape, wire or foil. Corresponds to the term "profile" (GUEST 8617-81, GOST 22233-2001).

material status

The state of the material (temper) is the state of the metal (grade of aluminum or aluminum alloy), he received as a result of mechanical and / or thermal treatment during the manufacturing aluminum product. Usually it characterized metallurgical structure of the metal and its mechanical, as well as other properties.

Symbol states material aluminum brands and aluminum alloys in all standards, which are represented below, made according to EN 515.
