1200 Aluminium Alloy

Commercial Aluminium

1200 Commercial Aluminium Alloy

Commercial aluminium alloy Grade 1200 has high corrosion resistance with slightly higher strength than 1050A.

High Thermal Conductivity

The alloy also boasts high thermal conductivity and reflectivity although this is not relatively as high as 1050. The alloy has a 99% minimum requirement for aluminium content and yet is still classed as a non-heat treatable commercially pure aluminium. Grade 1200 has been largely replaced by grade 1050A.

High Anodising Capabilities

1200 Aluminium is a high thermal conductivity alloy with superior atmospheric corrosion resistance. With high anodising capability, the material readily joined with improved weldability.

Typical Applications

Commercial applications for this engineering material include:

  • General fabrication
  • Sheet metal work
  • Boiler fabrication
  • Kitchenware
  • Industrial pressure vessels

We stock 1200 in flats, round bar, plate, sheet, strip, round tube and hollow bar.

Technical Assistance

Our knowledgeable staff and resident metallurgists will be pleased to assist you further on any technical topic. Smiths Metal Centres Limited also boasts an in-house UKAS Accredited Testing Laboratory which is unique within the multi-metal and plastic stockholding sector. We believe this underlines our total commitment to quality and our ethos of being the complete service provider.
