An Overview of Aluminum Strip Stock

Aluminum strip stock is processed by slitting and produced according to the width required by the order. During the machining process, the width tolerance and surface quality can be better guaranteed. What are its common alloys? What are the factors of influencing the aluminum strip price? Let’s have a look together.

Main alloys

Pure aluminum alloy: Aluminum flat strip for dry-type transformers is generally made of 1xxx series aluminum strip like 1070 alloy. It is the purest alloy in the pure aluminum series, featuring high plasticity, low strength, corrosion resistance, good electrical and thermal conductivity. The conductivity can reach more than 35.7 S/m.

Al-Mn aluminum strip: The typical one is 3003 and 3004 aluminum strip. They have certain strength, rust and corrosion resistance, and is suitable for the processing of metal products with certain strength requirements. The price is slightly higher than that of pure aluminum strip.

Al-Mg aluminum strip: The representative products are 5052 and 5754 aluminum strip. They are of high magnesium content, high hardness, and good bending performance, which are suitable for processing parts that need to be bent while having clear requirements about hardness.

Al-Mg-Si aluminum strip: 6061 t6 aluminum strip is the typical one. It is one of the products with higher hardness among all aluminum strips, which is not suitable for bending.

Manufacturing process

Firstly, we need to choose an aluminum coil with a suitable thickness. Before processing, make sure that the thickness of the aluminum coil is right and hen arrange the slitting machine, and control the slitting width of the slitting equipment according to the actual width. If it can be controlled well, the width tolerance can be controlled within 0.05mm.

Aluminum strip price

The price of aluminum strip is generally higher than the price of aluminum coil or aluminum plate, because the aluminum strip needs to be cut and processed, and at the same time, some waste will be generated to a certain extent.

The factors affecting the aluminum strip price are mainly related to the material, width and thickness of the aluminum strip. Different width and thickness will bring a lot of differences.

How to store it

As one of the big aluminum strip suppliers, Haomei Aluminum tell you how to store aluminum strip roll. Store the aluminum strip in a clean, dry, well-ventilated environment without any corrosive gases and corrosive substances.

Especially pay attention to waterproof and moisture-proof, especially in summer and autumn. If the humidity in the air is too high, it will also cause the surface of the aluminum strip to oxidize or corrode.
