Aluminium Sheet

sheet

Characteristics

Aluminium sheet is supplied in two main grades: 1050A-H14 and 5251-H22.  1050A-H14 has the following characteristics:

  • Moderate strength
  • High ductility (resists cracking or breaking when manipulated)
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Highly reflective finish
  • Weldable
  • 5251-H22 is more suitable for punching and laser cutting, but is less suitable for folding than 1050A-H14.  It also has a higher corrosion resistance.

Both grades can be guillotined to size using our in-house fabrication facilities and can be coated with a plastic film (polycoating) to protect the surface while being worked upon.  Polycoating can be in standard or laser quality film and can be applied to order.
