The multifaceted composition of this alloy (Al -1.2 wt% Si -1.1 wt% Mn -0.2 wt% Mg
-0.26 wt% Cu) suggested that it might display some degree of
strengthening via precipitate formation of the Mg2Si-types.
4017 Aluminum Tread Plate
Alro stocks 4017 aluminum tread plate in several thicknesses and pattern sizes. 4017 is a bright finish tread similar to 3003 grade. 4017 provides durability. Also referred to as Aluminum Diamond Plate, Aluminum Tread Plate, Tread Bright, Aluminum Floor Plate, this highly reflective, economical product is widely used in decorative, cosmetic and architectural applications. Having good forming, drilling and welding ability, Aluminum Diamond Plate is easy to fabricate and its raised diamond lug pattern provides good slip resistance.
The aging isotherms constructed showed that EN 4017 with 0.19% Mg reached a lower peak strength (YS~210 MPa and UTS~260 MPa) compared to the EN 4017 material with 0.43% Mg (YS~270 MPa and UTS~325 MPa). The higher Mg variant of EN 4017 was comparable with the age-hardenable reference alloy EN 6061.
4017 aluminum is widely used for stampings, spun and drawn parts and products, cooking utensils, chemical equipment, builders hardware, storage tanks, truck and trailer components, mail boxes, cabinets, fan blades, awnings, siding, kitchen equipment, decorative trim, architectural uses, signage applications, etc. Where greater strength is required, consider 5052.
4017 Aluminum Tread plate is widely used for truck beds and trailers, walk ways and cat walks, flooring, wall panels, tool boxes, decorative trim, architectural uses.
