Aluminum strip refers to strip shape product which manufactured with aluminum as the main raw material, and mix other alloy elements. The cross section is rectangular and of uniform thickness and larger than 0.20mm. Usually, the edges are cut by live sawing and delivered in a flat form. The common alloy series of aluminium strip are 1000 series, 3000 series, 5 series, 8 series, etc. The common aluminum model are 1050, 1060, 1070, 1100, 3003, 3004, 5005, 5052, 8011 and so forth. The commonly used temper are O and H states. O is soft, and H is hard. O and H can be followed by numbers to indicate the degree of hardness, and the degree of annealing.
Aluminum strip is an important basic material for the development of national economy. It is widely used in aviation, aerospace, construction, printing, transportation, electronics, chemicals, food, medicine and other industries. With the rapid development of economy, the investment of aluminum strip in China is heating up continuously, and the consumption of aluminium strip is steadily increasing. Demand for building and interior decoration, aluminum foil manufacturing, printing, PS, manufacturing, household appliances, food packaging industry are improving, it become the main driving force of aluminum consumption growth. At the same time, the transportation industry is becoming a new growth point of consumption.
