What is 1050 Aluminium alloy?

1050 aluminum sheet belongs to 1000 series aluminum alloy metal. It belongs to a commercially pure wrought family with a purity of 99.5% Al.

1050 aluminum alloy grade

In addition to the component Al, 0.4% Fe is added, so 1050 aluminum alloy also has high conductivity.

1000 series aluminium group offers the best correction tensile to any alloy group, so does the 1050 aluminium sheet. It has a high tensile strength and can be formed into many shapes to meet the needs of various industries.

1050 aluminum sheet has excellent corrosion resistance, high ductility and high reflectivity. These excellent properties determine its position in industrial processing and decoration industries, and have a high usage rate in these industries.
