1050 Aluminum Coil

The 1050 aluminum alloy is from the 1xxx alloy group, which is used heavily by the electrical and chemical industries for being a commercially pure wrought family of aluminum alloys. The minimum 99.5% aluminum composition means that 1050 aluminum exhibits low mechanical strength compared to much more significantly alloyed metals from other groups. However, it also has excellent corrosion resistance and high plasticity than many other alloys.

Inquivix Technologies can provide high-quality and cost-effective 1050 aluminum coil manufactured to your exact specifications of gauge, width, and tempered grade, plus any other special requirements you may have. While it cannot undergo heat treatment, cold working can be used to achieve a more moderate strength needed for certain applications and the surface of 1050 aluminum coil can be polished to obtain the desired look for its end products.

Material Properties Of 1050 Aluminum Alloy

High Corrosion Resistance

Coming from a commercially pure wrought family of aluminum means that 1050 coils have some of the best corrosion resistance across the entire range of aluminum alloys. This allows our 1050 aluminum coil customers to manufacture special chemical equipment for various industrial applications.

Surface Treatments Can Be Done

Our aluminum 1050 coil has a good anodizing quality and it can undergo chemical and electrolytic brightening to deliver a polished surface. Whether your requirement is technical or purely decorative, our aluminum 1050 coil can be manufactured to deliver the desired surface coating and appearance.

High Plasticity And High Ductility

These properties of 1050 aluminum coil give it excellent cold workability, braze-ability, and solderability. This means that 1050 can be easily handled and processed for a large number of conventional industry applications from signage, to cable sheathing and even components for electrical appliances. Architectural flashings such as roofing and gutters can also be manufactured from 1050 aluminum coils.

High Electrical Conductivity

Our 1050 aluminum coil has great electrical conductivity. The alloy also has excellent electrochemical stability and can function over a wide range of temperatures. This makes 1050 aluminum very useful as the cathode foils used in lithium-ion batteries. Further rolling in the production process will result in the crucial 1050 aluminum foil which is used by many of our customers in the secondary battery industry to power everything from electric vehicles to smartphones.

Strength Can Be Improved

While 1050 aluminum has low mechanical strength compared to other types of alloys, it can be improved by cold working techniques. However, customers should keep in mind that 1050 aluminum is a non-heat treatment series, which can only be cold-worked.

Excellent Thermal Conductivity

The higher thermal conductivity of 1050 aluminum gives it an edge over other more significantly alloyed metals. This makes the alloy useful for making heat transfer devices such as heat sinks.

What Is 1050 Aluminum Alloy?

1050 aluminum is an alloy from the pure aluminum series of 1xxx which has an aluminum composition close to 99%. This means it is lower in strength but more resistant to corrosion than other alloy types. It also has high conductivity both electrically, and thermally. 1050 aluminum is very workable and its surface can be prepared easily for decorative or functional requirements.

What Is 1050 Aluminum Coil Used For?

1050 aluminum coil can be used to manufacture industrial chemical handling equipment, heat sinks, architectural flashing applications, signage, components in electric appliances, cable sheathing, and secondary battery components.
