Get the Aluminum You Need with Aluminum Plate Drops

If you have ever needed a small piece of aluminum for a project, then you likely know how frustrating it can be to purchase. Many aluminum distributors have hefty minimum purchase requirements, sawing charges, and not to mention lead times. In addition, many metals distributors inventory many different metals, cataloging only a small selection in each alloy. This can be problematic from both a price and availability standpoint while searching for a small piece of aluminum. Howard Precision Metals, a 100% aluminum distribution and service center, has the perfect solution: the random rack.

Are aluminum mirror sheets used for curtain walls?

Aluminum mirror sheet has many different types. According to low to high grades, it includes film mirror aluminum, domestic polished mirror aluminum, imported polished mirror aluminum, imported oxide mirror aluminum, and super-mirror aluminum. According to your product features and positioning to choose the right for your reflector, if you want to do high-end products, then use the imported mirror, low-end, then choose domestic. Domestically made mirror is characterized by no protection of the surface treatment, mirror aluminum will change over time, the price is cheap; imported products are characterized by a stable reflectance, 86% of the ordinary mirror and 95% of the super-mirror two grades, the price to a little more expensive.

The descriptions of 5052 oxide aluminum sheet products

he main alloying element of 5052 oxide aluminum sheet is magnesium, which has good forming performance, corrosion resistance, good weldability and medium strength. The alloy has high strength, especially anti fatigue strength, high plasticity and corrosion resistance, and can not be strengthened by heat treatment. In semi cold hardening, the plasticity is good, and the plastic is low when cold working hardening. It has good corrosion resistance and good weldability. Most of the states are: H22, H32, H34, H36, H38, 0 state, etc.. 5052 aluminum oxidation products are mainly used in notebook case, keyboard, camera case, tablet computer, circuit board, LED board, sheet metal, tubing, and aircraft fuel tank for vehicle and vessel, instrument, hardware, electrical appliances and other fields

Application of color aluminum sheet in construction industry

At present, in the construction industry, more and more applications of color aluminum sheet in roof and mobile foam board, most people have heard of color aluminum tiles and asbestos tile, tile color is actually color aluminum sheet after surface treatment, pressure type, as roofing material as everyone knows. According to the needs of different customers, you can choose the appropriate color of the high strength of the aluminum sheet. Color aluminum sheet is a metal material, and the probation period is long. By contrast, after used for a long time, color steel tile almost had no recycling value, and through promoting the development and market of color aluminum tile color made of aluminum has received the favor of the market.
