High Quality Marine Grade Aluminum You Can Rely on for Florida's Boating Industry
What is Marine Grade Aluminum?
The Florida marine industry has been using aluminum in the manufacturing of boating vessels for over 100 years due to aluminum’s wide range of marine grade applications. AMD Supply is a distributor of marine grade aluminum for Florida marine companies.
The nature of water and saltwater can be treacherous, so it’s important to use materials that don’t rust. Marine grade aluminum is perfect for ships because of how strong it is in salty environments like shipbuilding or off-shore platforms where corrosion would otherwise occur more quickly with regular steel.
The 5000 alloys are considered the top choice when it comes to marine grade aluminum. Boat hulls are commonly made out of of a rolled aluminum sheets or plates due to its terrific corrosion resistance and high strength at weld points.
The 6000 alloys (6061 / 6063) offers the Florida boating industry with two alloys that feature a strong yield strength (6061) for boat hulls and the 6063 alloy offers boat manufacturers with a higher level a malleability and features a surface finish for anodizing.

Uses of Boat Aluminum
Watercraft made from marine grade aluminum alloys have high speeds, longer lives and lower maintenance costs. These boats are also more resistant to corrosion which makes them preferred by designers who want a proactive approach towards avoiding any safety or quality issues.
Marine grade aluminum has been a popular metal when it comes to the manufacturing process of designing and building a boating vessel.
Due to aluminum’s high strength, malleability, and lightweight properties, the marine and shipping industry has evolved over the last 50 years.
Marine aluminum is used in many different parts and marine grade applications ranging from the hull of the vessel to boat ladders, marine fittings, railings, and gangplanks.
