Difference Between 1000 Series and 2000 Series Aluminum Plates

1000 series

The 1000 series aluminum plate is also called pure aluminum plate. In all series, the 1000 series belongs to the series with the most aluminum content. The purity can reach above 99.00%. Because it does not contain other technical elements, the production process is relatively simple and the price is relatively cheap. It is the most commonly used series in the conventional industry. Most of the circulation in the market is the 1050 and 1060 series. The 1000 series aluminum plates are based on the last two Arabic numerals to determine the minimum aluminum content of the series. For example, the last two digits of the 1050 series are 50. According to the international brand nomenclature, the aluminum content must reach 99.5% to be qualified products. China’s aluminum alloy technical standards (gB/T3880-2006) also clearly stipulates that the aluminum content of 1050 reaches 99.5%. The same reason that the aluminum content of the 1060 series aluminum plate must reach 99.6% or more.




2000 series aluminum plate

Representative 2A16 (LY16) 2A06 (LY6) 2000 series aluminum sheet is characterized by high hardness, which has the highest copper content, about 3-5%. The 2000 series of aluminum sheets are aerospace aluminum and are not commonly used in conventional industries. There are fewer manufacturers producing 2000 series aluminum sheets in China. The quality cannot be compared with foreign countries. Imported aluminum sheets are mainly supplied by Korean and German manufacturers. With the development of China’s aerospace industry, the 2000 series of aluminum sheet production technology will be further improved.
