1050 1060 1100 aluminum alloy price

May 12, 2020

1050 1060 1100 aluminum alloy price is the lowest of all aluminium series, plain sheet rolls are only around $2200, but if you need alloys of more complicated process, they can be hundreds of dollars more expensive.

The price of 1050, 1060 and 1100 is cheaper than other alloys because they are pure aluminium, containing at least 99% aluminium, while alloys other other series, like 3003, 3004 and 3005, have an aluminum content of only around 95% and less. Without specific alloying metals, 1xxx alloys can be obtained more easily in production. Besides, they serve as the traditional alloys in development of the aluminium industry, which indicates they enjoy technology much maturer than other alloys.

The price disparities between 1100 1050 1060 aluminum alloy products derive from variation in surface treatment, shape and specification. Ordinary surface treatment is mill finish, which you will be offered in case of no special notes. Extra surface treatment methods include embossing, anodizing, polishing and color coating, each incorporating further branch details in production. Take embossing for example. First there are many patterns available, like five bar, three bar, diamond, ripple, stucco, hammer, pebble etc. Embossed aluminium coil rolls of regular patterns cost more or less the same, but rare patterns cost more. Second, all the embossed coils can be polished, coated and anodized if you like. Generally only one of these methods are selected, for not all of them match each other in production. Color coating is the cheapest and anodizing the dearest. Thus the final 1050 1060 1100 aluminum alloy price depends on which surface treatment methods you need. As for shape, there are rectangle sheets, rolls, triangle sheets, circle discs, strips and even slugs to cater for diverse market demands, all of which entail varied processing steps and costs. Specification include thickness, width, length etc. If what you need is within regular scope of specifications, the price is relatively stable. If, however, you need aluminium products beyond the regular scope, it usually means extra costs. For example, aluminum discs stamping of over 700mm wide prove to be more expensive than those below 700mm.
