What is the thickness of the thin aluminum sheet?
The aluminum sheet is formed by processing and sawing pure aluminum or aluminum alloy into a uniform plate. For the convenience of processing, people define the thickness of the aluminum plate between 2.0mm-500mm as a thick plate (aluminum plate), and the thickness below 2mm is defined as a thin sheet (aluminum sheet). This is also why some aluminum products are “sheet” and some are “plate”.
Note: “sheet” often refers to thin aluminum, and “plate” refers to thick aluminum.
In this way, people have made a more precise division according to thickness, the following table is the classification of aluminum sheet according to the thickness of aluminum plate.
|Aluminum Sheet Plate Thickness Classification Table|
|Type||Sheet Or Plate||Thickness||Common Size|
|Medium Thickness Plate||Plate||6.0mm-25.0mm||8mm,9mm,10mm,12mm,20mm|
Types and characteristics of thin aluminum sheets
There are two types of thin aluminum sheets, pure aluminum sheets and aluminum alloy sheets. The two sheet metals have different properties.
Application: Generally speaking, pure aluminum sheet has very high aluminum metal content and high hardness. After coating, it is suitable for making products such as unscrewing lids, while aluminum alloy sheet is suitable for making products such as can body covers.
In terms of mechanical properties: the alloy sheet is added with Mg, Si, Cu and other elements, and its processing performance is much higher than that of pure aluminum sheet. After repeated cold rolling, the material of the aluminum sheet is easy to become hard and brittle.
Where to buy thin sheets of aluminum?
If you want to buy china thin aluminum sheet metal, you can go through Huawei Aluminum. Henan Huawei Aluminum Co., Ltd. is a supplier of aluminum raw materials, mainly engaged in 1 series 1050, 1060 foil aluminum plate, 2 series 2024 thin aluminum plate, 3 series 3003, 3004 thin aluminum sheet, 5 series 5005, 5052, 5083, 5754 thin aluminum plate, 6 series 6061 thin aluminum sheet and other products.

The characteristics and advantages of thin aluminum sheet
1. The thin aluminum plate is easy to process.
After adding certain alloying elements, the thin aluminum plate can obtain cast aluminum alloy with good casting performance or deformed aluminum alloy with good processing plasticity.
2. The aluminum plate has good electrical and thermal conductivity.
Aluminum’s electrical and thermal conductivity is second only to silver, copper and gold, and can be used to manufacture many electronic devices and household appliances.
3. The metal density of the thin aluminum plate is small.
The density of aluminum and aluminum alloys is close to 2.7g/cm³, which is about 1/3 of iron or copper, and has a wide range of applications in construction.
4. High metal strength.
Aluminum and aluminum alloys have high strength. After a certain degree of cold working, the strength of the matrix can be strengthened. Some grades of aluminum alloys can also be strengthened by heat treatment.
5. The corrosion resistance of the sheet is good.
After the surface is oxidized, the sheet has good moisture-proof and corrosion-resistant properties, and the products used can also be stored and used for a longer time.
Thin aluminum sheet production process
How is thin aluminum sheet made?The rolling of thin aluminum sheets is generally cold-rolled. (Cold rolling: refers to the rolling process below the recrystallization temperature of metals and alloys is called cold rolling). The thickness of the thin aluminum plate is generally less than 3mm, the thickness of the aluminum plate obtained by hot rolling is 6-8mm, and the thin plate and strip can be obtained by cold rolling.
In the process of hot rolling, it is easy to have a large temperature drop, and it is impossible to roll to a thinner thickness, while cold rolling can easily make the rolled piece continue to thin. Usually, the cold rolling mill can roll to 0.5-4.5mm, and the more advanced cold rolling mill can roll out extra-thin or thick foil with a thickness of 0.1mm-0.2mm. 🔗Huawei Alu Metals has such mature craftsmanship and production machines, which can provide thin aluminum sheets under 3mm.
How to cut thin aluminum sheet?
What is best way to cut thin aluminum sheet? Commonly used cutting methods for thin aluminum sheets include shears, plasma cutting machines, laser cutting, or electric saws. Huawei Alu Metals chooses different methods according to different thicknesses.These are best way to cutting thin aluminum sheet and bending thin aluminum sheet as follow.
|≤0.1mm||Use a utility knife or paper cutter||easy to operate|
|0.1mm-2mm||A toothless saw is recommended||The cut aluminum sheets are flush and flat, and are less prone to scratches.|
|＞2mm||Use large electric or hydraulic shears.||Relatively flat, no burrs|
Note: Because it is a thin-walled aluminum material, it is easily deformed by pressure and resistance during cutting. If the pressure is too large during the cutting process, it is easy to deform the aluminum sheet.
Thin aluminum sheet suppliers
Huawei Aluminum Metal Factory, as one of China’s top 100 aluminum sheet suppliers, wholesales thin aluminum sheet metal, provides customers with the most affordable prices while ensuring the quality of aluminum sheets. We have been producing and exporting thin sheets for 22 years and have exported thin sheets to more than 70 countries in the world. of aluminum, as a thin aluminum sheet roll manufacturer, gives buyers the most stable price and fastest delivery time for thin aluminum sheets for sale.
What is the thinnest aluminum sheet?
Generally, the thinnest aluminum sheet whose thickness is less than 2mm can be 0.1mm, which is already very thin aluminum sheet metal. If the thickness is less than 0.1mm, it will become the range of aluminum coil and aluminum foil. Too thin aluminum sheet has poor toughness , The hardness is not enough, so thin sheets of aluminum are used less in some scenes that require high strength.
Thin aluminum sheet metal exporting country
Huawei Aluminum exports aluminum sheets, aluminum coils, aluminum foils, aluminum wafers and other products to many countries around the world every year, and has been affirmed by many customers.
