Supply Sheet Metal in Cincinnati can Supply Aluminum Sheets
Aluminum sheet metal is a very versatile product. Aluminum has a high strength characteristic and excellent thermal conductivity. Aluminum unlike other metals takes care of itself since it forms a tough, transparent protective oxide coating when it combines with oxygen.
Aluminum is available in many finishes that other metals cannot provide. It can be plated, painted, and laminated to plastic or wood. It is an ideal sheet metal for laser cutting to make decorative items for the home or the business.
There are different types of aluminum sheet metal as indicated by the following codes:
1100: This aluminum is the most easily welded and creates the decorative pieces since it is great for intricate forming. It has excellent resistance to corrosion.
3003: This is the most widely used of all aluminum sheet metal. It’s strength is increased by 20 percent over the 1100 aluminum by manganese.
5052: THis product has the highest strength of more common alloy sheet metal, and it has excellent finishing characteristics. This product can be anodized bright and clear.
Aluminum sheet metal is also available in many alloys: Alloy 2011: This has the highest machinability.
Alloy 2014: Characteristics are high yield strength, low elongation, and good weldability
Alloy 2017: This has better strength and wear resistance than 2011
