One side mirror finish aluminum sheet

November 7, 2019

A one side mirror finish aluminum sheet is named in relative to both-side aluminum mirror sheets. As a matter of fact, when people speak of “mirror finish aluminum sheet”, they mean one side sheet, for two-side mirror sheets are rarely produced, unless required by clients. And the process proves to be more complicated as well as more expensive. In most cases of uses, one side sheets are enough to meet decorative requirements.

The quality of a one side mirror finish aluminum sheet is subject to raw material types and processing methods. Sheets suitable as base plates are known as pure aluminium and alloy aluminium sheets. The former mainly include 1050, 1070 and 1085, featured by low cost, mature process and low hardness. In contrast, alloy sheets are harder and more expensive. The most frequently applied are 5005 and 5657. With a magnesium content between 3% to 5%, 5000 series of aluminum plates boast an excellent corrosion resistance, used as a regular marine grade aluminium material for shipbuilding. The manufacturing process of 5005 and 5657 is continuous casting and rolling (hot rolling), which makes it convenient to have them anodized. An anodized mirror finish aluminum sheet ranks top in the quality level of aluminium mirror sheets. It’s obtained by a electrolysis process with the sheet as the anode in a corresponding electrolyte (such as sulfuric acid, chromic acid, oxalic acid, etc.). It has a high reflectivity (95% and above), a perfect hardness and an extremely long service life. While the other kind of mirror sheets, polished aluminum sheets, are manufactured by mechanical rolling and sanding. They have a poorer reflectivity and a shorter service life.

One side mirror finish aluminum sheets are used in a wide range of applications, such as lighting decoration, solar panels, interior architectural decoration, exterior wall decoration, household appliances panels, electronic product casings, kitchens, signs, bags, jewelry boxes and so on.
