Firstly, aluminum plate sheet means aluminum material which has the thickness of above 0.2 mm and under 500 mm, the length between 200 mm to 16 m. And the same to aluminum alloy, aluminum plate sheet has models from 1000 series to 8000 series with different alloy content and physical, chemical performance. The common models are 1060, 1050, 1070, 1100, 1145, 2014, 2017, 2024, 2A11, 3003, 3004, 3105, 5005, 5052, 5083,5086, 5154, 6061, 6063, 7005, 7075, 8011 aluminum plate sheet and so on.
Then aluminum plate have widely application area such as lighting lamp , solar reflected, building exterior, interior decoration, ceiling, metope, furniture, cabinets, elevator, signs, nameplate, luggage, automotive interior and exterior decoration, indoor decorations, frame, household appliances: refrigerators, microwave ovens, audio equipment, aerospace and military aspects, satellites, machinery parts processing, mold manufacturing, chemical thermal insulation pipe coating.
As aluminum plate sheet is made of aluminum rolling processing and rectangular plates, it is usually divided according to the following two points：
1. according to the alloy composition
High purity aluminum plate rolling (by the content above 99.9 high purity aluminum)
Pure aluminum plate (ingredients made from pure aluminum rolling)
Alloy aluminum plate (composed of aluminum alloy and auxiliary, usually with aluminum and copper, aluminum and manganese, aluminum and silicon, aluminum magnesium, etc)
Composite aluminum plate or brazing plate (through a variety of means of material compound special use aluminum material)
Outside package aluminum aluminum (aluminum coated aluminium sheet used for special purposes)
2. according to the thickness (mm)
Sheet (aluminum sheet) 0.15 to 2.0
Conventional plate (aluminum sheet) 2.0 to 6.0
Medium plate (aluminum plate), 6.0 to 25.0
Plate (aluminum plate) 25-200
Super thick plate more than 200
