The properties of the various aluminium alloys have resulted in aluminium being used in industries
The plate is used in heavy-duty applications such as those found in aerospace, military, and transportation product manufacturing. An 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. The plate is also used to manufacture structural sections for railcars and ships, as well as armor for military vehicles.
