More details about our aluminum sheet:

3003 Aluminum Sheet & 5052 Aluminum Sheet

3003 aluminum sheet and 5052 aluminum sheet provide excellent weldability and formability, with good corrosion resistance, which makes 3003 and 5052 aluminum sheet a popular and economical choice. Both have a smooth, semi-shiny finish and is popular for many applications. In addition, 3003 and 5052 aluminum sheet will not unravel and under normal circumstances will hold its shape for many years.

3003 Aluminum Sheet Applications

Aluminum sheet 3003 is used in many types of industrial applications, including:

Food & chemical handling,Fuel tanks,Trailer siding,Roofing,etc.

5052 Aluminum Sheet Applications

Aluminum sheet 5052 is used in many types of industrial applications, including:

Refrigerator liners,Fuel tanks,Storm shutters,Panels, etc.

6061 T4 Aluminum Sheet

Aluminum 6061 T4 Sheet is solution heat treated and naturally aged giving it slightly lower tolerance accuracy than Aluminum 6061 T6, which undergoes artificial aging. T4 is also slightly less expensive than T6 and has a slightly lower ultimate tensile strength and yield strength, with a higher elongation percentage, which increases the formability of the T4 temper. Aluminum sheet 6061 T4 is also cost friendlier and has improved formability over T6. Aluminum T4 is solution heat treated, and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition.

6061 T4 Aluminum Sheet Applications

Aluminum sheet 6061 T4 is used in many types of industrial applications, including:

Aircraft panels,Automotive panels,Trailer frames,Packaging,etc.

It is not difficult to know the difference of different aluminum sheet once you find a right supplier.
