16 Gauge Aluminum Sheet Roll

The thickness of 16 gauge aluminum sheet is about 1.29mm. Many aluminum alloy sheets can be processed to this thickness like 1100, 3003, 5052, 5251, 5182, 6061,etc.

1100 aluminum sheet is a kind of pure aluminum sheet with a small amount of copper, having excellent forming and processing characteristics, high corrosion resistance, good weldability and electrical conductivity. It is widely used in products that require good formability and high corrosion resistance but low strength requirements. It is a high-quality aluminum plate with a high copper content in this series.

3003 aluminum alloy is mainly composed of aluminum, manganese and copper. The aluminum content is more than 96%, the manganese content is between 1-1.5%, and the copper content is between 0.05-0.20%. Due to the addition of elements such as manganese and copper, 3003 aluminum alloy has good corrosion resistance and weldability, as well as good formability and mechanical properties.

5251 aluminum alloy is a medium strength alloy that has good ductility and therefore good formability. Alloy 5251 is known for its rapid work hardening and ease of welding. It also has high corrosion resistance, especially in marine environments.
5052 aluminum is an Al-Mg aluminum alloy with medium strength, high fatigue strength and good plasticity. It is the most widely used anti-rust material. The role of chromium (Cr) in this alloy is similar to that of manganese (Mn), which improves the resistance to stress corrosion cracking, increases the strength of the base metal and weld, and reduces the tendency of welding cracks. The main tempers are 5052-H32, H34, H36, H38, O,etc.

5182 aluminum plate belongs to the Al-Mg alloy. Its strength is slightly better than that of 5052 and 5083 aluminum alloys, and its yield strength is also better than that of 5052 and 5083 alloys. Because the alloy contains trace elements Si, it has excellent welding performance and can be used for gas welding, electric welding, seam welding and argon arc welding. It has good corrosion resistance and cannot be heat treated, but has good cold workability and good processing and forming properties.

The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum plate are magnesium and silicon. It has medium strength, good corrosion resistance and good anodizing effect. In recent years, it has been used in large quantities in automobiles, mechanical parts, molds and other industries. The T6 temper is the most used. It contains a small amount of Cu, so its strength is higher than 6063, but its quenching sensitivity is also higher than 6063.
