Aluminum is a unique metal with a diverse range of uses and characteristics. It can be recycled near-continuously without changing its properties, all the while saving about 90 percent of the energy that it would take to create new primary aluminum. At incredibly cold temperatures, it actually gains strength instead of becoming more brittle and shatter-prone. Even though aluminum’s electrical conductivity is just over half that of copper, it is widely used in overhead electric transmission lines for its lightweight properties.
Pure aluminum can be too soft for certain applications, but when alloyed with even a small amount of metals such as copper, magnesium, silicon, manganese, or zinc, it starts to take on some of their useful properties. Strength, density, workability, electric conductivity, and corrosion resistance can be tweaked by adding various combinations of metals to create an alloy that is uniquely suited to perform a certain task. No matter what you intend to use thin aluminum strips, sheets, or foils—Thin Metal Sales can get you the right material at the right size.
Our aluminum sheet metal for sale is processed by photo and chemical etching, laser and waterjet cutting, and precision stamping. These alloys are highly formable and are used in a wide range of applications:
- Internal and external aircraft parts
- Aerospace and space fight
- Laminated shims
