1 8 inch aluminum sheet metal, 3 16 aluminum plate and 1/4 aluminum plate, these are common specifications and thickness aluminum plates, which are also commonly used. Different grades of aluminum plates can have a thickness of 1 8 inch or .125 and pass the rolling process. For example, 1050, 1060, 3003, 5052, 5754, and 6061 grades all have 1 8 inch aluminum sheet metal.
1000 series industrial pure aluminum
There are standards for industrial pure aluminum, which generally refers to aluminum with a purity of 99.0%-99.9%. 1000 series 1 8 inch aluminum sheet metal has the general characteristics of aluminum products, low density, electrical conductivity, good thermal conductivity, and good plasticity. But the strength is not high, and the corrosion resistance is average.
3000 series alloy aluminum
The production process of this series of aluminum alloys is very mature, and manganese is their main component, and the content is between 1.0-1.5. Because it is an alloy, it has certain anti-rust performance, but it is not as good as 5000 series and 6000 series. The price is cheap.
5000 series alloy aluminum
The 5000 series has a wide range of features and uses. Its use involves fields such as construction, automobiles, hulls, tankers and so on. It has powerful anti-rust function and other characteristics such as low density, high tensile strength and high elongation. The 5000 series is really a more mature aluminum alloy series.
6000 series alloy aluminum
The main alloying elements are magnesium and silicon. It is suitable for applications with high oxidative requirements. Typical features: Good usability, excellent interface characteristics, easy coating, and good processability.
Weight = area × thickness × density
We already know that the density of aluminum is 2.7 grams per cubic centimeter, or 270 kilograms per cubic meter, so the weight per square meter of an aluminum plate with a thickness of 18 inches can be calculated as follows:
That is: 1 8 inch thick aluminum plate weighs about 8.6kg per square.
1/8 aluminum sheet is divided into materials, different materials have different prices. This requires you to choose the right aluminum sheet according to your purpose;
1 8 inch aluminum sheet metal price=Yangtze River spot aluminum ingot price + processing fee;
The calculation of the price needs to use the weight mentioned above, because the price usually given is the price per ton.
The specific price calculation should be calculated by the salesperson. After all, there are too many factors related to the price of aluminum sheet, such as aluminum sheet alloy, temper, thickness, width and length, which may have an impact on the price of aluminum sheet. Generally speaking, the price of aluminum sheets from manufacturers is lower. Mingtai Aluminum is an aluminum sheet manufacturer with more than 20 years of production experience.
