Aluminium plates and sheets are the fabricated aluminium products. The aluminium plates are produced when the aluminium is passed between rolls under pressure and then it changes into thinner and longer. The aluminium sheet is produced when slab is again rolled through a continuous mill in order to diminish its thickness and then wound into a coil at the end of the line.
Aluminium plates and sheets are used in food and beverage, building and construction, automotive and transportation, aerospace and other end users segment. It offers a unique properties like weight advantage, durability and highly formable. It does not discolour products and is reflective to both heat and light. It can be coated with a wide variety of surface finishes and welded and formed according to the preference.
