Aluminum Sheet / Plate

Aluminum Sheet / Plate

The advantage properties of aluminum alloy are light weight, excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, high corrosion resistance and ductility.

Aluminum alloy is soft and usually alloyed with copper, zinc, magnesium, silicon, manganese and lithium to increase strength. When aluminum alloy is exposed to air, an anti-oxidant coating will be formed instantly to protect products. Aluminum alloy is one of the lightest metals. The application of products ranges from precision technology to daily commodities.
