Features of Aluminium Sheet
- Lightweight– It’s approximately 1/3 the weight of iron and copper
- Low Melting Point– It has a good casting property.
- Excellent Ductility– It’s easy to work into new shapes and can undergo specific treatments.
- Conductive– It has a higher thermal and electrical conductivity.
- Resistant to corrosion– This characteristic can be improved with special coatings.
- Recyclable– It can be indefinitely recycled without losing any of its fundamental properties.
Applications of Aluminium Sheet
Sheet, the most widely used form of aluminium, is found in all of the aluminium industry’s major markets.
In packaging, it is used to manufacture cans and packages.
In transportation, it is used to manufacture panels for automobile bodies and tractor-trailers.
In daily life, it is used in home appliances and cookware.
In building and construction, it is formed into products including siding, gutters, roofing, awnings and carports.
Aluminium sheet can be color-anodized to black, gold, red, blue and hundreds of other colors. It can be etched to a matte finish, polished to a sparkling brightness or textured to resemble wood and painted.

How Much Does a 4×8 Sheet of Aluminium Weigh?
What’s the weight of a 4×8 aluminium sheet? First of all, you need to know the calculation formula of the weight of the aluminium plate: Weight = density × volume. The density of aluminium is 2.7g / cm³. Assuming that the thickness of the 4×8 aluminium sheet metal is 1/5 “, the volume is 921 cubic inches or 15092 cm³, multiplied by the density of 2.7 g / cm³, and the resulting weight is 41 kg or 90 lbs. Note that this is the weight of each piece if there are 1000 tablets, the total weight is 41 tons or 90388 pounds.
The Price of Aluminium Sheet
To know the specific aluminium sheet price, you need to sort out some issues first.
In theory, aluminium sheet price has nothing to do with the thickness, because we usually quote in metric tons. However, the smaller the thickness, the higher the price, but this is not absolute.
Generally speaking, 1xxx aluminium sheet is the cheapest, while 2xxx, 3xxx, 4xxx. 5xxx, 6xxx, 7xxx, 8xxx are more expensive in turn, because they are related to different processes and tempers.
Aluminium sheet price will be affected by 3 factors
- The price of aluminium ingots. The price of aluminium ingots is a direct factor affecting the price of aluminium plate. The price of non-ferrous aluminium ingots in the Yangtze River is changing every day and is unpredictable. This directly affects the price of aluminium plates.
- Alloy. The price of aluminium plate of each alloy series is different, for example, the price of 1 series and 6 series alloys will be much different.
- Specifications. The aluminium plate price of ordinary thickness specifications is not high, but the ultra-wide specifications are not necessarily. The wider the aluminium plate, the higher the price, so if there are no special requirements, it is recommended to choose the regular width.
Besides, temper, surface treatment methods and delivery costs are also affecting the price of aluminium sheet. Therefore, if you want the aluminium sheet price, please send the sheet’s complete details to your supplier.
Share with you how to judge the quality of aluminium sheet
Aluminium sheet is a very important industrial raw material, so the quality requirements are stringent. When we want to buy aluminium sheet, we should first judge the quality and strength of aluminium sheet.
- The first is chemical composition. If a large amount of aluminium or scrap aluminium is mixed into the aluminium sheet, its cost will be greatly reduced, but the chemical composition is not qualified, also the quality will not be qualified.
- The second is processing technology. The inferior aluminium sheet greatly reduces the processing steps and the loss of chemical reagents. This can reduce costs, but the corrosion resistance is greatly reduced.
- We need to pay attention to the oxide film on the surface of the aluminium sheet when buying. For aluminium sheets with a thickness of less than 3mm, if the oxide film is thin and the thickness is insufficient, the aluminium surface is prone to rust and corrosion.
