With an outstanding strength-to-weight ratio and natural corrosion resistance, aluminum sheet metal is popular for a broad range of applications. Aluminum sheet and plate are used in everything from aerospace and aircraft manufacturing to beverage packaging, cryogenic storage applications to siding, gutters, and roofing for homes.

Aluminum Plate vs. Aluminum Sheet

Aluminum sheet and aluminum plate are essentially the same; the only true distinction is in their respective thickness. Aluminum sheet is any aluminum sheet metal thicker than foil but thinner than 6mm; it comes in many forms including diamond plate, expanded, perforated and painted aluminum sheet. Aluminum plate is any aluminum sheet metal that is thicker than 6mm.

3003 Aluminum Sheet & 5052 Aluminum Sheet

3003 aluminum sheet and 5052 aluminum sheet provide excellent weldability and formability, with good corrosion resistance, which makes 3003 and 5052 aluminum sheet a popular and economical choice. Both have a smooth, semi-shiny finish and is popular for many applications. In addition, 3003 and 5052 aluminum sheet will not unravel and under normal circumstances will hold its shape for many years.

3003 Aluminum Sheet Applications

Aluminum sheet 3003 is used in many types of industrial applications, including:
  • Food & chemical handling
  • Fuel tanks
  • Trailer siding
  • Roofing
  • And more

5052 Aluminum Sheet Applications

Aluminum sheet 5052 is used in many types of industrial applications, including:
  • Refrigerator liners
  • Fuel tanks
  • Storm shutters
  • Panels
  • And more

5052 Aluminum Plate Applications

Aluminum plate 5052 is used in many types of industrial applications, including:
  • Marine hardware
  • Boat hulls
  • Tanks
  • Drums
  • And more

6061 T4 Aluminum Sheet

Aluminum 6061 T4 Sheet is solution heat treated and naturally aged giving it slightly lower tolerance accuracy than Aluminum 6061 T6, which undergoes artificial aging. T4 is also slightly less expensive than T6 and has a slightly lower ultimate tensile strength and yield strength, with a higher elongation percentage, which increases the formability of the T4 temper. Aluminum sheet 6061 T4 is also cost friendlier and has improved formability over T6. Aluminum T4 is solution heat treated, and naturally aged to a substantially stable condition.

6061 T4 Aluminum Sheet Applications

Aluminum sheet 6061 T4 is used in many types of industrial applications, including:
  • Aircraft panels
  • Automotive panels
  • Trailer frames
  • Packaging
  • And more

Aluminum Cast Tooling Plate

Cast aluminum tooling plate is produced from a fine-grain aluminum alloy which is free from internal stresses. This material is internally stable, which assures minimum movement during machining. Tooling plate is also a machined product, with flat surfaces and a surface finish equal to 32 micro-inches or better on both sides. It is readily machined with very little distortion. Using proper aluminum machining methods, tolerances in the thousandths can be maintained.
Additionally, cast aluminum tooling plate is one-third as heavy as steel plate, which usually eliminates the need for heavy handling equipment for installation or set up, and reduces the load on ways and screws. It is highly resistant to corrosion, requiring no protective treatment.

Aluminum Cast Tooling Plate Applications

Aluminum tooling plate is utilized for a wide range of industrial applications, including:
  • Welding fixtures
  • Drill jigs
  • Vacuum chucks
  • Automotive tooling
  • Electronic components
  • And more
