Aluminum Used for Bicycle
- Sep 22, 2017 -

Bicycle is one of  widely used means of transport in the world .Its  frame is also made from aluminum. This is the material par excellence in the cycling industry, and it is difficult to be overtaken, its advantages are many with respect to its predecessor, steel, now reserved only for low-end bikes.

 

In this industry aluminum alloys with scandium are used, which allows to obtain in the aluminum certain microstructures that result in better resistance properties, ie, it allows to make walls thinner and therefore lighter tubes without compromising the mechanical resistance of the material . Another interesting property is the resistance to corrosion, which gives durability to the material in question.
