Aluminium Sheet metal is flexible metal sheeting that can be cut, designed, and shaped into almost anything you can image. With the help of an experienced sheet metal worker. The reason you can shape it into pretty much anything is because it is made into thin flat pieces or Aluminium sheets. These metal Aluminium sheets come in a wide range of sizes and thicknesses since it is used to make a large variety of items in multiple industries.
The thinner Aluminium metal sheeting is often called foil or leaf. On the other hand, the thicker sheet metal is commonly referred to as plate. In the United States, the thickness of the metal is measured as a gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the thicker the metal. Then as the gauge number increases, the Aluminium sheet metal will become thinner. Commonly used gauges can range anywhere from 30 to 7. These gauge numbers will differ depending on the material. For example, there are iron based metals called ferrous as well as nonferrous metals that contain copper or aluminum.
Aluminium Sheet metal can be formed from many different metals. Some of which include tin, steel, nickel, titanium, copper, brass, aluminum, silver, gold, and platinum. The specific type of metal used will be determined according to requirements of the sheet metal object.
