What is 1050 Aluminium alloy？
1050 aluminum sheet belongs to 1000 series aluminum alloy metal. It belongs to a commercially pure wrought family with a purity of 99.5% Al.
In addition to the component Al, 0.4% Fe is added, so 1050 aluminum alloy also has high conductivity. 1000 series aluminium group offers the best correction resistance compared to any alloy group, so does the 1050 aluminium sheet.
1050 aluminum sheet has a high tensile strength and can be formed into many shapes to meet the needs of various industries.
1050 aluminium Alloy Designations
Aluminium alloy 1050 also corresponds to the following designations:
1050 aluminum sheet/plate chemical composition (For Reference)
Chemical Composition conforms to Chinese, American, and European standard specification
Physical properties of 1050 aluminum sheet
Tigers have 12 years of 1050 aluminum sheet and plate production experience and can produce and supply high-quality 1050 aluminum sheets. In addition, different temper can be provided, such as O (annealed), H12, H14, H18, H24, and so on.
1050 aluminum coil sheet which has better correction resistance than other alloy series. Aluminium alloy 1050 is a popular grade of aluminium for general sheet metal work where moderate strength is required.
1050 aluminum sheet is a non-heat treatment alloy, which is enhanced by cold working and has excellent cold workability, solderability, and weldability.
Aluminium alloy 1050 is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, high ductility, excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, and highly reflective finish, but the strength of 1050 aluminum alloy is low, so 1050 aluminum alloy is well suitable for chemical and electrolytic brightening but not in casting.

The brand of aluminum alloy from which the Aluminum 1050 sheet is made determines its properties.
The excellent properties of 1050 aluminum alloy sheet are the basis for its wide use in the following sectors.
1050A aluminum alloy (1050 alloy) is available in sheet, plate, strip, bar, wire, drawn tube, welding wire, forged material and rivet material.
However, 1050 aluminum plate has low mechanical strength compared to more strongly bonded metals.
What is 1050 Aluminium alloy used for?
1050 alloy has exquisite corrosion resistance, excessive ductility, moderate strength, and a highly reflective finish. This grade of alloy is most appropriate for use as food industrial containers, architectural flashings, cable sheathings, lamp reflectors, manufacturing of food cans, beverage cans, automotive parts, and other products and chemical method plant equipment.
1050A aluminum sheet is commonly used in some places that require high corrosion resistance and formability but not high strength. 1050 aluminum sheet is also industrial aluminum. For example, A typical application is the manufacture of chemical industry containers.
In addition,1050 aluminum alloy is used for lithium battery soft connection, pole material, explosion-proof valve, PS board base, heat sink, signage, lamp, reflector, etc.
- Chemical process plant equipment
- Food industry containers
- Pyrotechnic powder
- Architectural flashings
- Lamp reflectors
- Cable sheathing
Aluminum 1050 alloy is also sometimes used for the manufacture of heat sinks, since it has a higher thermal conductivity than other alloys.
The other type of 1000 series aluminum sheet
- 1050 Aluminum Coil Sheet
- 1060 Pure Aluminum Coil Sheet Plate
- 1070 Pure Aluminum Sheet Plate
- 1100 Aluminum Sheet
- 1200 Aluminum Sheet Plate
Multi-product made of 1050 aluminum alloy sheet metal
Aluminium Alloy 1050 (1050 A) is available in Plate, Sheet, Strip, Bar, Wire, Drawn Tube, Welding Wire, Forging Stock, and Rivet Stock.
Welding of 1050 aluminum sheet
When welding 1050 to itself or an alloy from the same subgroup the recommended filler wire is 1100. For welding to alloys 5083 and 5086 or alloys from the 7XXX series, the recommended wire is 5356. For other alloys use 4043 filler wire.

Secondly, they should have a variety of products to choose from because not everyone needs the same thing or wants the same thing so it’s important to have options.
Thirdly, they should be cost-effective because you want the best value for your money without sacrificing quality or service so you can save money in other ways such as marketing costs or by cutting back on staff hours
Aluminum 1050 vs aluminium 5052
Aluminum 1050 is a low-cost aluminum alloy. It has good corrosion resistance and good formability. The product can be used in the production of general-purpose building materials, household appliances, machinery parts, and other products.
Aluminum 5052 is an alloy of aluminum with copper and magnesium. It has better corrosion resistance than 1050 aluminum. The product can be used in the production of aircraft, rail cars, ships, containers for corrosive liquids or gases like sulfuric acid or chlorine gas.
Aluminum products of Tigers meet the export popular.
Plastic movie and brown paper can be protected at customers’ need. Also timber case or timber pallet is adopted to shield products from harm for the duration of the delivery.
There are styles of packaging, which is eye to wall or eye to sky. Customers can choose either of them for their convenience.
