Aluminium sheets: characteristics and applications


Aluminium sheets, thanks to their properties, can be used in different sectors: automotive, building, hvac-r and others. Aluminium is:

  • Light (it’s approximately 1/3 the weight of iron and copper)
  • Ductile (it’s easy to work into new shapes and can undergo specific treatments)
  • Conductive (it has a higher thermal and electrical conductivity)
  • Resistant to corrosion (this characteristic can be improved with special coatings)
  • Recyclable (it can be indefinitely recycled without losing any of its fundamental properties)
