What is Aluminum sheet?

Aluminium sheet is highly resistant to corrosion, very ductile and has a reflective finish. It is roughly 1/3 the weight of mild steel, so that it is ideal for general sheet metal work where moderate strength is required but weight is an issue. Aluminum sheet is straightforward to form or bend using hand tools or a bending brake. It also can be cut using a jigsaw with the correct blade, on a guillotine. Aluminum sheet can be used for a wide range of applications from tooling sheet, structural, general engineering, transport, agricultural, architectural, truck bodies, trailer parts ship and boat building.

Features of Aluminum sheet

1. Light (it’s approximately 1/3 the weight of iron and copper)

2. Ductile (it’s easy to work into new shapes and can undergo specific treatments)

3. Conductive (it has a higher thermal and electrical conductivity)

4. Resistant to corrosion (this characteristic can be improved with special coatings)

5. Recyclable (it can be indefinitely recycled without losing any of its fundamental properties)

Applications of Aluminum sheet

Due to the convenient and unique properties of aluminum sheets, their uses are also varied and extensive to provide a complete list of applications. This section presents some of the most common aluminum sheet applications that are easily found in a variety of everyday industries, construction sites and designs.

Roofing: Aluminum panels are ideal for roofing projects due to their lightweight yet strong construction. Additionally, the corrosion resistance of these panels increases the use of larger panels in roofing applications.

Ceilings: Composite aluminum panels and Dibond are generally suitable for indoor ceiling applications and large tiles. Due to their reflective, soft and aesthetic appearance, they offer a highly decorative and wear-resistant design.

Balconies: Once again, aluminum panels are widely used for balcony railings and fences due to their lightweight, waterproof and rigid properties.

Cladding and Exterior Walls: Aluminum composite panels have always been a leading product for exterior or façade, interior insulation and other applications in a wide variety of commercial, residential and industrial facilities and buildings. Architects all over the world prefer to use these products in their designs due to their resistance, finishes, coatings and ease of installation craftsmanship.

High Stress Applications: Medium-strength aluminum sheet structural alloys with excellent corrosion resistance are ideal for a range of force-intensive applications including aerospace and automotive structures.

Shelters: Aluminum panels are an effective material for building lightweight and durable shelters and walkways in workplaces, public areas and even private homes.

Floors and walls: Checked aluminum panels can provide anti-slip and damage-resistant properties, which are useful in high-traffic areas. In addition, decorative and perforated aluminum panels and walls are becoming increasingly popular in workplaces and homes as attractive, aesthetically pleasing and easy-to-clean fixtures.

Cable Sheathing: Cable metal sheathing is usually made of aluminum foil and sheet due to their corrosion resistance, easy handling process and electrical properties.

Support and Lifting Devices: Lightweight products for the lifting industry can increase productivity and reduce energy consumption. Machines and equipment that contain aluminum in their structure are easier to transport to the construction area.

Caravans: Storage and containment structures often incorporate aluminium and aluminium panels in their construction, making them lighter for transport and providing excellent resistance to weather conditions in areas with high exposure to different elements of damage.
