Aluminium Plates

Aluminium Plates

Information

Aluminium plates, also known as aluminium sheets, are basic raw form aluminium made into sheet form. Being sturdy, thin and lightweight, aluminium plates are used in a wide variety of industries and applications for its various properties. Coatings on aluminium plates can provide long-lasting materials for exterior use such as cladding, while the lightweight nature of very thin sheet aluminium makes it ideal for use in aluminium cans and other household products.

Applications

Uses of aluminium plate include marine, construction,manufacturing, transport, industrial, automotive, food processing, heavy machinery and airline industries.

Grades

Two of the most widely used grades of aluminium plate alloys are 1100 and 6061. AA1100 is commercially pure aluminium. It is soft and ductile and has excellent workability. It is ideal for applications involving intricate forming because it work hardens more slowly than other alloys. It is the easiest to weld among all aluminium plate alloys using any method, but is non-heat treatable. It has excellent corrosion resistance and is commonly used in the food processing and chemical industries.

AA6061 is the most versatile of all heat-treatable aluminium plate alloys, while maintaining most of the good qualities of aluminium. It offers a range of good mechanical properties and superior corrosion resistance. It can be welded and fabricated by many commonly used techniques and has good workability in the annealed condition. As a result, AA6061 is used in several products and applications, which require strength and corrosion resistance.

Other aluminium plate grades are available upon request. You can request to cut your aluminium plates down to size.

Finishes

FinishDescription
AnodisingProtective aluminium oxide outer layer providing increased resistance to corrosion and wear.
Bright DippingElectro-brightening treatment to produce smooth surface with high lustre and “mirror” finish.
Brushed FinishDistinctive appearance with uniform fine lines parallel to the brushing direction.
Mill FinishOriginal nature of aluminium, where no chemical or mechanical finish is done on the surface.
Powder CoatingDurable film coating that can meet stringent performance criteria, offering a wide variety of colours.
PretreatmentEtched or cleaned with an acidic or alkaline material before a pretreatment coating is applied. Applied coating enhances paint or powder adhesion and is corrosion resistant.
