What Is Aluminium Sheet - Types, Applications, Definitions


Jun 30, 2021

Aluminum sheet refers to the rectangular plate rolled by aluminum ingot, which is divided into pure aluminum plate, alloy aluminum plate, thin aluminum plate, medium thick aluminum plate and patterned aluminum plate.


Aluminum sheet refers to the aluminum material with a thickness of more than 0.2mm to less than 500mm, a width of more than 200 mm, and a length of less than 16m, which is called aluminum plate or aluminum sheet. Aluminum plate with a thickness of less than 0.2mm is called aluminum material, and aluminum plate with a width of less than 200 mm is called row material or strip material (of course, with the progress of large equipment, there are more aluminum plates with a maximum width of 600 mm).

Aluminum sheet refers to the rectangular plate rolled by aluminum ingot, which is divided into pure aluminum plate, alloy aluminum plate, thin aluminum plate, medium thick aluminum plate and patterned aluminum plate.


Aluminum sheets are usually divided into the following two types:

1. According to the alloy composition, it can be divided into: 1

High purity aluminum sheet (rolled from high purity aluminum with content over 99.9)

Pure aluminum sheet (basically rolled from pure aluminum)

Alloy aluminum sheet (composed of aluminum and auxiliary alloys, usually aluminum copper, aluminum manganese, aluminum silicon, aluminum magnesium, etc.)

Composite aluminum sheet or welded plate

Aluminum clad aluminum sheet


2. According to thickness: (unit: mm)

Aluminum sheet 0.15-2.0

Aluminum sheet 2.0-6.0

Aluminum sheet 6.0-25.0

Five rib pattern aluminum sheet

Five rib pattern aluminum sheet

Aluminum sheet 25-200 ultra thick plate over 200

Aluminum sheet 25-200 ultra thick plate over 200

1. Lighting 2. Solar reflector 3. Building appearance 4. Interior decoration: ceiling, wall, etc. 5. Furniture, cabinet 6. Elevator 7. Signs, nameplates, bags 8. Car interior and exterior decoration 9. Interior decoration: such as photo frame 10. Household appliances: refrigerator, microwave oven, audio equipment, etc. 11. Aerospace and military aspects, such as China's large aircraft manufacturing, Shenzhou spacecraft series, Satellite, etc. 12. Mechanical parts processing 13, mold manufacturing 14, chemical / thermal insulation pipe coating. 15. High quality ship plate


3. Classification

In the aluminum alloy, the brand is representative, the following is based on 7075t651 aluminum sheet brand as an example. The first 7 represents the group of aluminum and aluminum alloys - aluminum zinc magnesium alloys. Aluminum and aluminum alloy groups are divided into nine categories. Among them, aluminum and aluminum alloys of series 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7 are the main ones, while other series are seldom used in practice.

Class I: Series 1: industrial pure aluminum

Class II: 2 Series: aluminum copper alloy

Class III: 3 Series: Al Mn alloy

Class 4: 4 series: Al Si Alloys

Class 5: 5 Series: Al Mg alloys

Class 6: 6 Series: Al Mg Si Alloys

Class 7: 7 Series: Al Zn mg Cu alloy

Class 8: 8 series: other alloys

Class 9: Series 9: spare alloy

Aluminium Supplier


As for CHAL aluminium sheet, the thickness is from 0.2mm to 6mm. It is thinner than aluminium plate and thicker than aluminium foil. It comes in many forms, including diamond, expanded, mirror and mill finished aluminium sheet, perforated and painted aluminium sheet. Also, our aluminium sheet can be clad and bare. Surface treatment includes colour coated and anodized. The shapes of aluminium sheet include coil rolled sheet, stripe sheet, square sheet, rectangular sheet, round circle/disc. The aluminium raw material is available from 1xxx series to 8xxx series.
