Solar panel aluminium profile is the most widely used in current solar installations. Our solar aluminum profiles are aluminum components specifically designed to support and mount solar panels.
What is a solar panel aluminium profile?
Many countries around the world are now using solar energy. Because it is a premium solution for a sustainable energy transition. In these solar construction projects, aluminum profiles are used in fixed structures and mobile structures for photovoltaic applications due to their light weight, easy processing, high strength, and good corrosion resistance, including: solar panel frames, photovoltaic brackets wait. The solar aluminum profiles produced by Retop are available in different models and sizes, which can meet the needs of different solar construction.

What are the specific applications of solar panel aluminium frame?
There are many places where solar aluminum profiles can be applied. The following are the specific ways to use them:
Solar panel brackets and frames. Solar aluminum profiles can support the installation of solar panels and ensure they are positioned correctly to maximize solar energy absorption.
Solar aluminum profiles are also used to make the frame of solar water heaters. These frames support the collectors of the solar water heater.
Solar aluminum profiles are used to support solar auxiliary equipment, such as solar fans, solar chargers and solar lamps. They help these devices to be positioned correctly.
Solar installation structure: In solar power generation projects, solar aluminum profiles are used to build the installation structure of solar cell arrays. They support the arrangement of solar panels.
Solar awnings, solar carports and solar roofs. The structures are designed to harness solar resources and provide shade, parking or living space.
What type of aluminum is used in solar panel aluminium profile for mounting?
Most solar aluminum profiles use the following aluminum alloys:
Aluminum 6063: 6063 aluminum alloy is relatively soft and is easy to extrude, cut, weld and bend, so it has strong processability. And it has good corrosion resistance and is easy to carry out various surface treatments.
Aluminum 6061: The cost and strength of 6061 aluminum alloy are slightly higher than 6063, and it is more difficult to extrude. Therefore, 6061 is more suitable for applications that need to withstand larger loads, such as aerospace and automotive manufacturing. This type of aluminum alloy is rarely used to make solar aluminum alloys.
Therefore, in summary, it is most suitable to use 6063 aluminum alloy to make solar aluminum profiles. It is also the most widely used solar aluminum alloy material.
What are the advantages of using aluminum profiles for solar frames?
Light weight. The density of aluminum alloy is 2.75 grams per cubic meter. Lightweight makes solar aluminum profiles easy to transport and install.
Low price. The price of solar aluminum profiles is less than twice that of stainless steel. Therefore, from a cost perspective, aluminum alloys are more cost-effective.
Aluminum profiles have the advantages of corrosion resistance and oxidation resistance, and are widely used in construction and industrial fields.
Not easily deformed. Solar aluminum profiles have high elasticity, rigidity, and metal fatigue values, are not easily deformed, and can well protect solar panels.
Beautiful and convenient. The aluminum edges of the solar panels are all connected with corner codes, so there is no need to tighten screws, which is beautiful and convenient.
Aluminum profiles have a long service life. The service life of aluminum alloys is generally more than 30-50 years. The battery panel has a service life of 20-25 years, which can fully meet the usage requirements.
Packaging and transportation of aluminium profile for solar panel
The packaging and transportation of solar aluminum profiles are important links to ensure that the product reaches its destination safely and maintains its quality. The following are the general packaging and transportation methods of solar aluminum profiles:
Packaging method: Generally, solar aluminum profiles will be packed with plastic film first, then put into cartons, and then filled with foam. This kind of packaging will protect the solar aluminum profiles from scratches and bends.
Transportation Mode: We support different transportation modes, such as sea transportation, air transportation, road and rail transportation. But the specific transportation method needs to be determined according to your needs.
Production process of solar panel aluminium profile
First, the aluminum ingot is processed into aluminum alloy and cast into aluminum rods.
Then pass the aluminum rod through the extruder, squeeze it into the required shape, and then quench and cool it immediately.
The aluminum profile will then be straightened. It is then sent to an aging furnace to improve the strength of the aluminum profile.
Surface treatment according to needs. For example, spraying, anodizing, sandblasting, etc.
Cutting solar panel aluminium profile. Cut the aluminum profile to the appropriate length according to the customer’s needs.
Punching. Complete the necessary mounting holes.
Inspection. We will conduct machine inspection and manual inspection. To check whether there are scratches on the surface of the aluminum profile, whether the size is qualified, etc.
