Last year, the first aluminum industry analyst forum in 2016 held in Shanghai, from the electrolytic aluminum industry professional advisory body, futures companies, investment companies, trading companies, warehousing and logistics enterprises more than 30 senior analysts on the recent focus of the electrolytic aluminum market Issues and follow-up market evolution of the discussion and exchange. Since 2014, the National Aluminum Industry Analyst Forum has been held for three consecutive years.
Forum analysis, the domestic spot price of electrolytic aluminum since November last year reached 9710 yuan / ton low after the uplink, 1060 aluminum plate spot inventory has dropped to 25.5 million tons, nearly five years since the new low. At present prices, the industry profit has reached the best level since 2014, the resumption of production, the new production can release the kinetic energy to increase the supply of aluminum ingots will gradually increase the spot inventory continued to decline in the situation will gradually reversed.
Forum that the current market is very sensitive, 6061 aluminum plate supply and demand changes may be the impact of market amplification, aluminum price fluctuations and frequency will increase; how to change the consumption of electrolytic aluminum, the industry itself does not have any control.
Forum called on the relevant units in the industry do not forget last year, the sharp decline in aluminum prices, to further promote the supply side of the structural reform, cautious and orderly release of production capacity, maintenance of electrolytic aluminum market is not easy to good situation.
6061 aluminum alloy is the main alloy of magnesium and silicon, and the formation of Mg2Si phase. If a certain amount of manganese and chromium, can neutralize the bad role of iron; sometimes add a small amount of copper or zinc, in order to improve the strength of the alloy, but not to significantly reduce the corrosion resistance; conductive materials, there are a small amount Of copper to offset the adverse effects of titanium and iron on the conductivity; zirconium or titanium can refine the grain and control the recrystallization structure; in order to improve the machinability, lead and bismuth can be added. In the Mg2Si solid solution in aluminum, the alloy has artificial aging hardening function. 6061 aluminum alloy in the main alloying elements for the magnesium and silicon, with moderate strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, oxidation effect is better.
