1000 series is essentially pure aluminium with a minimum 99% aluminium content. We carry 1050A in sheet. Its advantages are corrosion resistance and workability. It has low mechanical strength compared to other grades that we can supply. It can be strengthened by cold working, but not by heat treatment.
