Introduction

Aluminum alloys are known for their strong corrosion resistance characteristics. These alloys are sensitive to high temperatures ranging between 200 and 250°C (392 and 482°F). They lose some of their strength on exposure to high temperatures. Aluminium / Aluminum alloys experience an increase in strength at subzero temperatures and are good low-temperature alloys.

Aluminium / Aluminum 1050 alloy has good corrosion resistance, formability and weldability. The following datasheet provides an overview of Aluminium / Aluminum 1050 alloy.
