Aluminum has a series of excellent properties: density, weight and strength is not high, easy processing, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, highly reflective, non-magnetic Due to these characteristics, aluminum and aluminum alloy has a wide range of applications
Aluminum is corrosion resistant and and virtually maintenance free. It has unbeatable strength to weight ratio when compared to other metals, and weighs in at roughly 1/3 as much as iron, steel, copper, or brass. Aluminum plate has heat conductivity better than any other common metal and conducts electricity comparable to copper products.
Aluminum is non-toxic and can be used in food preparation equipment. It is non-combustible (does not burn) and has a reflective nature, making it suitable for light fixtures. Some end uses for all grades of aluminum include transportation, food packaging, furniture, electrical applications, building, construction, machinery and equipment. It is interesing to note that aluminum is the most abundant metal element in Earth's crust and makes up about 8% by weight.
Aluminum plate is a raw material for parts as diverse as automotive side panels, storage tank walls, architectural panels and signs. The versatile properties of aluminum ensure high performance, durability and long life for its end products. These include:
Excellent corrosion resistance
Temperature resistance, including excellent performance at temperature extremes
Ease of machining, stamping, forming and welding
