Aluminium Plate Thickness
The aluminum plate thickness has a certain relationship with processing and price. There are thin aluminum sheet, thick aluminium sheet and standard aluminum sheet. Learn more!
According to the aluminum plate thickness, it can be divided into thin aluminum sheet, standard aluminum sheet and thick aluminum sheet. The thickness below 1mm belongs to thin plate, and the thickness between 1mm-8mm belongs to standard plate and that above 8mm is thick aluminum sheet.
This classification is mainly based on the processing craft. For example. The aluminum plate within 8 mm can be processed by cold rolling equipment, which is of relatively low cost while that above 8 mm or more must be manufactured by hot rolling equipment.
The aluminum sheet thickness has close relationship with the price. The price of 1-8 mm aluminum sheet is the most economic. The thinner plate has a relatively high price because of more processing steps.
As for aluminum plate exceeding 8mm, it must be produced by hot rolling after ingot processing, which will cause certain losses during the ingot casting process. At the same time, the price of hot rolling equipment is relatively high, so the price of super thick aluminum plate will be also high.
The flatness of aluminum plates below 1 mm needs to be paid attention to. Nowadays, many small processing factories don’t have stretch-bending and straightening equipment. For products below one millimeter, the flatness cannot be guaranteed. So if you want to buy 1mm aluminium sheet, finding a big aluminum sheet manufacturer such as Haomei Aluminum will be better.
There is no inevitable relationship between thickness and rolling process. Not all thin aluminum sheets are cold-rolled, because hot-rolled aluminum coils can also be further processed by cold-rolling equipment to become hot-rolled thin aluminum sheets.
However, it is certain that the aluminum plate above eight millimeters is hot-rolled aluminum plate, because cold-rolling equipment cannot produce aluminum sheet with a thickness greater than that. The aluminum plate thickness of Haomei Aluminum is 0.15-350 mm. Welcome to contact us by leaving message.
