Aluminum sheet for insulation cladding is a basic and inexpensive material in the aluminum industry. It is commonly used in pipe insulation projects and has gradually replaced galvanized iron sheets in insulation projects due to its good cost-performance ratio, becoming a popular insulation material today.
Currently, commonly used aluminum insulation cladding thicknesses are 0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.3mm, 0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.7mm, 0.8mm, etc. These products generally comply with the GB/T3880-2012 standard, with a thickness tolerance of +-0.01mm. Common materials include 1050, 1060, and 3003 3A21 LF21. Among them, 1060 pure aluminum is chosen for approximately 80% of engineering projects, while 3003 aluminum, as an aluminum-manganese alloy, is more commonly used in projects with high anti-corrosion and corrosive environments, such as desulfurization insulation projects in chemical plants. Selection can be made based on individual project requirements.
How is the cost of aluminum sheet for insulation cladding calculated per square meter? Commonly used materials for aluminum sheets include pure aluminum sheet1060 and 3003 aluminum sheet. According to national standards, the standard density of aluminum 1060 is 2.71 kg/m3. Therefore, the weight of a 0.7mm aluminum sheet per square meter can be calculated as follows:
Thickness (mm) * Density * Unfolded Width (m) * Length (m) = Weight (kg).
Therefore, the weight of a 0.7mm aluminum sheet per square meter is 1 * 0.7 * 2.71 * 1 = 1.897 kg. Generally, merchants quote prices per kilogram, so multiplying the weight by the kilogram price will give the price of a 0.7mm aluminum sheet per square meter.
Haomei Aluminum has a 1000-ton inventory of aluminum insulation cladding, and the length of each coil can be customized according to your requirements. Small aluminum cladding coils are packaged with solid wood and steel straps to ensure reliable packaging and prevent damage during transportation. Our company also supplies aluminum coils without a core, greatly reducing the purchasing cost for customers. Each aluminum coil has an aluminum core weighing 45-50 kg, which is made of aluminum. The aluminum core is usually sold together with the aluminum sheet. Not having a core would mean additional costs for customers.
Aluminum sheet for insulation cladding have excellent reflective properties for infrared radiation and have a service life of over 20 years under natural conditions, making them a good choice for insulation packaging. Iron sheets have inferior performance. From a construction perspective, aluminum sheets are easier to work with. When considering comprehensive costs from an energy-saving perspective, aluminum sheets are more cost-effective.
