Aluminium sheet is a remarkably versatile material in part due to the wide variety of surface finishes it can be given from painting to anodizing, texturing and polishing.
Aluminium Alloy 1050 is an industry-recognized grade for most general sheet metal work. It has moderate strength and excellent corrosion resistance. An attractive feature of our 1050 material is the highly reflective surface. This is ideal for exposed uses where a decorative impact is desired.
Typical uses for aluminium sheet include:
Additionally, we recommend a plastic coating on one or both sides for all of our Aluminium Sheet to help protect the surface during transit.
Aluminium is a highly versatile metal and has many uses including packaging, household items, transportation, machinery, and construction. It is the most widely used metal second only to steel.
Aluminium is very lightweight with an excellent strength to weight ratio - even superior to the strength to weight ratio of steel. Aluminium is naturally resistant to corrosion however this resistance can be improved by anodizing or painting the aluminium. Aluminium can also be welded and has good thermal and electrical conductivity.
Our Aluminium sheet, also known as a plate, is supplied in Grade 1050 and is one of the most popular grades of aluminium. It is highly resistant to corrosion, very ductile and has a reflective finish. Aluminium alloy 1050 has a blue/silver appearance and is ideal for general sheet metal work where moderate strength is required but the weight is an issue, as it is around a third of the weight of mild steel.
Grade 1050 Aluminium sheet can be used in many industries, is suitable both inside and outdoors (including marine and industrial environments). Aluminium is also very is to work with making it ideal for car body repairs, kitchen splashbacks, sign making, model making, and jewellery.
