1100 aluminum alloy introduction
Aluminum 1100 is one of the most widely used alloys,used in fields that do not require high strength, such as food and chemical handling and storage equipment, sheet metal products, hollow hardware processed by drawing and spinning, welding combination keys, reflectors, nameplates, etc.
Huawei 1100 aluminum alloy
1100 aluminum alloy is an ordinary industrial pure aluminum with an aluminum content of 99.0%. The strength is low, but it has good ductility, formability, weldability and corrosion resistance. It can be hardened by cold working, but not by heat treatment; after anodizing, its corrosion resistance can be further improved, and at the same time, a beautiful surface can be obtained.
The surface of Huawei 1100 aluminum is beautiful without obvious blemishes.

1100 vs 1060 aluminum alloy
|Different composition||The composition of 1100 aluminum and 1060 aluminum is different. 1100 aluminum is composed of aluminum and other alloying elements, such as copper, zinc, manganese, etc., and its aluminum content is more than 99.00%. 1060 aluminum is composed of more than 99.60% aluminum and a small amount of other alloying elements.|
|Different performance||The tensile strength of 1100 aluminum is higher than that of 1060 aluminum, and the compressive strength is also higher. In addition, 1100 aluminum is also more resistant to corrosion, with a brighter surface finish and a longer service life. The tensile strength and compressive strength of 1060 aluminum are lower than that of 1100 aluminum, its corrosion resistance is also weaker than that of 1100 aluminum, its surface gloss is not as good as that of 1100 aluminum, and its service life is also shorter.|
|Different uses||Due to its excellent performance, 1100 aluminum can be widely used in construction, automobile, home appliance, furniture, packaging, lamps and other industries, and can be used to make various types of aluminum products. However, due to its low tensile strength and compressive strength, 1060 aluminum is generally used to make aluminum products that do not require high strength, such as aluminum foil, kitchen pots, etc.|
|Different prices||The prices of 1100 aluminum and 1060 aluminum are also different. Because 1100 aluminum has higher tensile strength, compressive strength, corrosion and corrosion resistance, its price is also much higher than that of 1060 aluminum.|
1100 aluminum plate alloy packaging and delivery
1100 aluminum alloy sheet packaged
- 1. Carry out paper clipping or film coating on the aluminum plate to ensure that the surface of the aluminum plate is intact without scratches;
- 2. Plastic or kraft paper packages are used to prevent moisture and rain, to ensure that the aluminum plate is clean and free of dirt during transportation (each package has a moisture-proof desiccant to ensure the quality of our products in the rainy East and South China regions);
- 3. Install wooden pallets and reinforce them with steel strips to avoid collisions during transportation and ensure that the geometric shape of the aluminum plate remains unchanged;
- 4. Export products are packed in wooden boxes and brackets with fumigation marks;
- 5. Pack according to other packaging requirements of customers;
