Aluminium Alloy 1050 is a popular aluminium for general sheet metal work where moderate strength is required. Also used in extrusions where high ductility and corrosion resistance is important. It generally gives a bright finish.
Alloy 1050 is known for its electrical conductivity and can be used for; automotive trim, chemical and food industry equipment, light reflectors and strips for heat exchangers.
Properties given are typical and should only be used for comparisons of alloys. Actual values will depend on section specification.
