As a kind of pure aluminum sheet, 1050 and 1060 aluminum sheet have many characteristics, such as low density, good conductivity and thermal performance, good corrosion resistance, good plastic processing performance, they can be processed into plates, strip, foil and slug products. 1050 and 1060 aluminum sheet can be used in daily necessities, lighting appliance, baffle plate, adornment, chemical industrial containers, heat sink, signs, electronics, lamps and lanterns, nameplate, electric equipment, stamping parts and other products. Their typical application is the site with high demands of form-ability and corrosion resistance and not high requirement of strength. So 1060 aluminum sheet are the choice if you want to select between them, if you want 1060 aluminum sheet with high quality, Haomei aluminum sheet is exactly which you are looking for!
