There are many aluminium alloys with a diverse range of properties.
Aluminium alloy 1050 is commercially pure aluminium, highly resistant to chemical attack and weathering. They are easily worked and welded, but the lowest strength aluminium. They are also excellent for chemical processing equipment and other uses where product purity is important, and for metal pressings of all types where ductility is critical. Aluminium alloy 1050 comprise the widest range of sheet from stock.
Aluminium alloy 1050 sheets are used extensively for architectural products such as flashings, pressings, cills, soffits, cappings. Aluminium alloy 1050 sheet is excellant for painting and powder coating.
Aluminium alloy 1050 sheets are also used extensively in fabrications because they are easy to work.
General properties of aluminium:
Aluminium has a very good weight to strength ratio and is used entensively in all fields of engineering.
Aluminium is the most commonly occuring metal on the planet and is the most widely used metal after steel.
Aluminium is none toxic and is used widely with food and pharmaceutical products.
Aluminium is a good reflector of light and this can be improved by having the aluminium sheet polished.
