Aluminum 1100 sheet is a commercially pure aluminum. 1100 pure aluminum sheet has excellent welding characteristics; it is also soft and ductile so is ideal for applications that require intricate forming as it work hardens slower than other alloys. 1100 is however non-heat treatable. As 1100 has excellent resistance to corrosion it is widely used in the chemical and food processing industries also for giftware and applications where eye appeal is important.
6061 T6 Aluminum Sheet is an aluminum sheet product that is very versatile and has a wide range of applications. 6061 Aluminum sheet is made from one of the most widely used heat treatable aluminum alloys. This sheet has excellent corrosion resistance, good workability and good machinability. 6061 sheet applications include a wide variety of products from medical assemblies, aircraft construction to structural components. 6061 t6 aluminum sheet has a high strength to weight ratio making it ideal for any application where parts need to be light.
“the composition of 1100 or 1060 aluminum plates pure aluminum Aluminum content greater than 99% is called pure aluminum, 1100 aluminum content is 99%, and 1060 aluminum content is 99.6%. Other ingredients are iron and silicon.”
