Aluminium Plate

Aluminium Plate

Characteristics

Aluminium plate is most often used in grade 5083-'O' and has the following properties:

  • High strength aluminium-magnesium alloy
  • Exceptional performance in extreme environments
  • Tough
  • Weldable
  • High corrosion resistance

Aluminium plate is also available in grades 6082-T651 and 6082-T6.  For more information on the different characteristics of aluminium grades, please see our aluminium alloys page.

Aluminium plate can be cut to virtually any size on our in-house plate saw and our fabrication department are often providing customers with aluminium 'blanks' for further processing.  Please call our sales team above for further information.
