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 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 moderate strength and is ideal for general sheet metal work.
Our Aluminium checker plate is supplied in Grade 5754. This has excellent corrosion resistance and can also resist exposure to salt water and environments polluted by industry. It is a very strong alloy which makes it most suited for use as flooring.
Our Aluminium Angle, Box Section, Bar, Tube and T Section are supplied in Grade 6082. 6082 is a medium strength alloy which has excellent corrosion resistance which means it is ideal for use in structural applications. Some common uses include cranes, roofs, bridges, transport or any other high stress application.
