What is the aluminum sheet alloy 1050?

Aluminum sheet alloy 1050 is a common grade of 1000 series aluminum sheet plate, it belongs to pure aluminum plate sheet series. The mechanical properties of the 1050 aluminum sheet are not high, but because of the simple production process and mature technology, it has great advantages in price and high cost performance. Aluminum sheet 1050 is suitable for applied in industries that do not have strict requirements on the performance, such as advertising signs, equipment casings, decorative materials, kitchen utensils, etc., 1050 aluminum is also commonly used materials for processing mirror aluminum sheet.

The performance features of 1050 aluminum sheet are:

1, 1050 aluminum sheet is very soft, not strong, but has good ductility, can be drawn into filaments or rolled foil.

2, 1050 aluminum sheet has small density, can be strengthened, easy to process, and has good electrical and thermal conductivity, conductivity is two-thirds of copper, thermal conductivity is three times larger than iron, so it is mostly used for wires, cables, various heat exchanger, heat sink material, etc.

3, aluminum sheet alloy 1050 can not be heat treated and strengthened, can be strengthened by cold deformation, the only heat treatment form is annealing.

4, 1050 aluminum sheet has high corrosion resistance, no low temperature brittleness, strong reflectivity, non-magnetic, sound-absorbing, nuclear radiation, beautiful surface appearance.

The 1050 aluminum alloy is formed from pure aluminum by added a small amount of copper element, and the 1050 aluminum plate has low strength, excellent formability, surface treatment property, weldability and corrosion resistance. Besides, the industrial pure aluminum has the characteristics of high plasticity, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity, but the strength is low, it can not be strengthened by heat treatment, the machinability is not good, and contact welding and gas welding are acceptable. The higher the purity, the lower the hardness of the aluminum plate, in the 1000 series pure aluminum alloys, 1050 aluminum has higher strength, it is almost the same as 1060 aluminum.

The application of 5052 aluminium sheet are various auto parts, sheet metal parts, mechanical parts, automobiles, aircraft fuel tanks, warships, submarines, containers, household appliance use, refrigerator liners and so on. Performance of 5052 aluminum sheet: Tensile strength (σb): 170~305MPa, Yield strength (σb): 0.2 (MPa), Elastic modulus (E): 69.3~70.7Gpa, Annealing temperature: 345°C.

5005 aluminum sheet machinability is generally poor, especially in the soft temper conditions. However it can be machined, but with more difficulty than many of the aluminum alloys. Machining in the harder tempers, such as H34, H38, is better than in the soft temper condition.
