Aluminium coils are versatile and durable metal products made from aluminum, a lightweight and corrosion-resistant material. These coils are typically manufactured by rolling or coiling aluminum sheets, resulting in a continuous length of material that finds extensive use across various industries.
Alloy 1100: This is pure aluminum with excellent corrosion resistance and low strength. It’s often used for applications where high corrosion resistance is essential but high strength is not required, such as in chemical equipment and food packaging.
Alloy 3003: Known for its moderate strength and excellent corrosion resistance, 3003 aluminum coils are commonly used for roofing, gutter systems, and general sheet metal work.
Alloy 5052: This alloy offers high corrosion resistance and good formability. It’s suitable for marine applications, such as boat hulls and components, as well as architectural elements like siding and facades.
Alloy 6061: A heat-treatable alloy with good strength and weldability. It’s often used in structural components, automotive parts, and general fabrication where a balance of strength and formability is needed.
Alloy 8011: This is a commonly used aluminum alloy for packaging applications, including foil and coil for food packaging and pharmaceuticals.
Aluminum coils are typically produced in standard widths and thicknesses, but custom sizes can also be obtained through fabrication. Here are some common aluminum coil sizes:
Widths: Standard coil widths typically range from 24 inches (2 feet) to 60 inches (5 feet), but wider coils are available for specific applications.
Thicknesses: Aluminum coil thicknesses can vary widely, but common thicknesses include 0.3mm,0.4mm,0.46mm,0.50mm,0.56mm,0.71mm,0.91mm,1mm upto 5mm among others.
Custom Sizes: Depending on your specific requirements, you can order aluminum coils in various dimensions, widths, and thicknesses. The choice of size will depend on the application and manufacturing capabilities of the supplier or manufacturer.
Coil Weight: The weight of aluminum coils can vary based on the width, thickness, and length. Common coil weights range from a few hundred kgs to several thousand kgs.
Coil Inner Diameter (ID): Aluminum coils are typically wound onto a core with a specific inner diameter. Common ID sizes include 16 inches, 20 inches, and 24 inches.
Note: The availability of specific sizes and alloys may vary depending on the manufacturer or supplier. When ordering aluminum coils, be sure to consult with the supplier to determine the best size and alloy for your particular application.
