Aluminum Plate is highly resistant to corrosion, very ductile, and has a reflective finish. It is roughly 1/3 the weight of mild steel, so it is ideal for general sheet metal work where moderate strength is required but weight is an issue. Aluminum plate is straightforward to form or bend using hand tools or a bending brake. It also can be cut using a jigsaw with the correct blade, on a guillotine. Aluminium plates can be used for a wide range of applications from tooling plates, structural, general engineering, transport, agricultural, architectural, truck bodies, trailer parts ship, and boat building.
CHAL aluminium provides aluminum alloy products of Series 1000, Series 2000, Series 3000, Series 5000, Series 6000, Series 7000, and Series 8000 in different sizes. Main products include aluminum sheet, aluminum plate, aluminum foil, aluminum strip, aluminum coil, aluminum clad foil, aluminum checkered plate, CTP plate stock, PS plate stock, aluminum electrode capacitor foil, foil stock, deep-draw stock, brazing sheet, aluminum tread plate, etc.

Common widths of aluminum plates are 1000mm, 1250mm, and 1500mm. Common lengths are 2000mm, 2500mm, and 3000mm. The aluminum plate can be cut as per the client’s requirements. Our aluminum plate has a wide range of thicknesses 3mm up to 100mm. Thinner than 3mm is considered to be an aluminum sheet. With an outstanding strength-to-weight ratio and natural corrosion resistance, aluminum plate/sheet is popular for a broad range of applications. Aluminum sheets and plates are used in everything from aerospace and aircraft manufacturing to beverage packaging, cryogenic storage, siding, gutters, and roofing for homes.

Advantages of Aluminum Plate
- Lightweight-approximately one-third the density of steel.
- High Strength-some alloys can be substantially strengthened by work or by heat treatment.
- Corrosion Resistance varies depending on the alloy and the best resist marine exposure.
- Non-toxic-often used in contact with food.
- Workability-easily formed, machined, and welded.
- Reflectivity-bright finish options.
- Non-magnetic and non-sparking.
- High electrical conductivity.
- High thermal conductivity.
Quality Requirements of Aluminum Plate Cut to Size
- The surface should be clean and free of cracks and oxidized debris.
- The surface of the aluminum plate is allowed to have defects such as indentation, scratches, and roller indentation, but the depth cannot exceed the allowable negative deviation of the aluminum plate, and the minimum thickness should be guaranteed.
- The falling part with cladding bubbles is allowed.
- It is allowed to remove defects within the range of thickness differences.
- Custom to meet all your reasonable requirements.
Factors Affecting The Price of Aluminum Plate
There are many factors affecting the price of aluminum plates, mainly 3 factors:
- The price of aluminum ingots. The price of aluminum ingots is a direct factor affecting the price of aluminium plates. The price of non-ferrous aluminum ingots in the Yangtze River is changing every day and is unpredictable. This directly affects the price of aluminum plates.
- Alloy. The price of aluminum plate of each alloy series is different, for example, the price of 1 series and 6 series alloys will be much different.
- Specifications. The aluminum plate price of ordinary thickness specifications is not high, but the ultra-wide specifications are not necessarily. The wider the aluminum plate, the higher the price, so if there are no special requirements, it is recommended to choose the regular width.

Key Points in Quality Control – Aluminum Casting
For making high-quality aluminum plates and sheets, aluminium slab quality is very important. It determines the final product quality. Using advanced equipment and optimized process to improve the quality of aluminum alloy slab is the foundation of high-performance aluminum alloy products.
CHAL has a wide range of cooperation with many world-class companies on material design, melt processing, casting process optimization, etc. It comprehensively helps us to improve the quality of the aluminum alloy slab and ensures our ability to provide high-performance aluminum alloy slab products for different industry customers.
All the melting and holding furnaces are supplied by the GAUTSCHI company. At the same time, CHAL introduces full sets of AL-EMS, refining units and casting machines. In casting house, combustion media is natural gas. All production lines are equipped with AL-EMS, in-furnace refining and online refining devices, etc. The computer-controlled melting system can realize automatic combustion control to ensure the temperature uniformity of aluminum melt and furnace chamber air and the stability of furnace pressure. The operation safety of furnace is also improved accordingly. To ensure the aluminum melt flow smoothly into the mold with uniform temperature, We choose the tilting type holding furnace, which is good for producing high-quality slab. As for the casting, CHAL aluminium corporation uses the hydraulic semi-continuous casting machine to ensure the controllability and stability of casting process.
The Difference Between Aluminum Plate and Aluminum Sheet
Basically, Aluminum plate and aluminum sheet are almost the same, the only difference is thickness. Aluminum plate is thicker than an aluminum sheet, both plate and sheet come in many forms including diamond, checkered, expanded, perforated and painted.
Equipment For Hot Rolling and Cold Roling
CHAL purchased 1 +1 +3 hot rolling mills from Germany, which can satisfy the production requirements of aerospace plates, and can produce the highest level plates for, shipbuilding, high-speed train and large-size container. Besides, we brought 1 +5 hot rolling mills. All the hot finish rolling mills adopt the eve flatness control technology, which makes the mills have the best flatness control ability in the world and can supply the best shape hot-rolled strip.
