1050 Aluminum Sheet

The 1xxx series of aluminum alloys is considered a commercially pure wrought family, making 1050 one of the purest. The chemical composition of aluminum is 99.5% which gives the alloy high corrosion resistance, high ductility, and a very reflective finish compared to other alloys. Apart from these good mechanical properties, 1050 aluminum also has good thermal and electrical conductivity. Our high-quality 1050 sheets have been used to make everything from chemical equipment to heat sinks.

Inquivix Technologies provides industrial-grade 1050 aluminum sheet products which can be customized to obtain the desired mechanical properties, dimensions, and temper states our customers need. Inquivix Technologies also offers other aluminum products such as aluminum coil, foil, and new scrap which can be used in a wide variety of industrial applications. All our products are delivered in standard wood packaging and plastic film to ensure all goods are safe during transit.

Material Properties Of 1050 Aluminum Sheet

Moderate Strength

Being one of the purer aluminum alloys, 1050 does not have a high composition of alloying elements like other series to give it a high level of strength. This makes the 1050 alloy ideal for general sheet metal work where moderate strength is required. Our 1050 aluminum sheet products are not heat-treatable but can be hardened through cold-working. H14 is a popular temper that has improved tensile and yield strength.

Excellent Corrosion Resistance and Highly Reflective Finish

The 99.5% aluminum content gives the 1000 series alloy group including 1050 its high corrosion resistance. This makes 1050 a popular grade to manufacture chemical handling equipment, architectural flashings, road signs, and billboards. The reflective finish of the surface makes it useful for lighting equipment and lamp reflectors. Inquivix Technologies can also supply anodized aluminum sheet products for a more durable finish.

High Ductility and Weldability

Apart from its high corrosion resistance, 1050 is also very ductile. While it is not very good at machinability, it can be processed through many methods like forming, welding, brazing, and soldering. This is what allows our customers to utilize 1050 aluminum sheet products for a wide array of industrial applications from chemical equipment to architectural flashings.

Good Electrical Conductivity and Thermal Conductivity

1050 exhibits good electrical conductivity and higher thermal conductivity than many of the other alloy types. This makes the alloy perfect for making heat sink technology in consumer electronics devices and home appliances.

What Is 1050 Aluminum Alloy?

1050 aluminum alloy has a very high aluminum composition at 99.5% minimum. It has excellent corrosion resistance, high ductility, and highly reflective surface finish. The electrical resistivity and thermal conductivity of 1050 are also favored although the strength is not very impressive. O, H12, H14, H16, H18, H19, H22, and H24 are some of the popular tempers for 1050.

What Is 1050 Aluminum Sheet Used For?

1050 aluminum sheet products can be used to manufacture heat sinks, chemical handling equipment, billboards, road signs, architectural finishings, and lighting equipment such as reflectors. Inquivix Technologies can supply custom-made 1050 aluminum sheets in the thickness, tempering, and surface finish needed for the specific application.
