1050 aluminum (AI99.5, 3.0255) belongs to the 1000 series of aluminum alloys. The content of AL in 1050 aluminum alloys is 99.5%, which is also commonly referred to as commercial pure aluminum. 1050 aluminum alloys are also referred to as AL99.5, 3.0255, and A91050.1050 aluminum alloy is a wrought alloy. The manufacturing process is simple. So its price is relatively cheap. Besides, 1050 aluminum is also a non-heat-treatable alloy. So, its strength is low.

As a 1050 aluminum material manufacturer in China, we have more1050 aluminum materials and other grades of aluminum materials. We can also provide customized size aluminum sheets for customers.

1050 aluminum heat treatment

1) Rapid annealing

The heating temperature is 350~410℃. The holding time is between 30~120min depending on the effective thickness of the material. air or water cooling.

2) High-temperature annealing

The heating temperature is 350~500℃. when the thickness of the finished product is ≥6mm, the holding time is 10~30min. When it is less than 6mm, the heat is penetrated; air cooling.

3) Low-temperature annealing

The heating temperature is 150~250℃. The holding time is 2~3h. Air or water cooling.

1050 Aluminum Features and Application

1050 Aluminum Features and Applications1050 Aluminum0.4% Fe is added to 1050 aluminum. Improves its electrical and thermal conductivity. So it is also often used in the manufacture of electrical equipment and variable transformers. (low and high-voltage transformer windings).

Our company’s 1050 1060 1070 aluminum strips and coils for transformers are favored by the market and customers.1050 aluminum plate has high tensile strength. It has good resistance to modification and can meet the needs of various industries. But 1050 aluminum has low strength and is not suitable for castings.

Alloy 1050 also has good corrosion resistance, superior ductility, and a highly reflective finish. Commonly used in the manufacture of food industry containers, daily necessities. Decorations, cable jackets. Food cans, beverage cans, nameplates, automotive parts and chemical industry containers.

In life, our common 1050 aluminum alloy is 1050 embossed aluminum. 1050 embossed aluminum can be used in refrigerators, solar heat reflectors. Decorative aluminum products, lamps, disinfection boxes. Air conditioning, ventilation ducts, indoor and outdoor decoration, machinery and equipment shell.
