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 anodising or painting the aluminium. Aluminium can also be welded and has good thermal and electrical conductivity. Our Aluminium sheet, also known as 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 weight is an issue, as it is around the 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.
