Mirror aluminum sheet, as the name implies, refers to an aluminum plate with a high reflectivity on the surface of the aluminum plate like a mirror. Mirror aluminum sheet is mainly used for interior building decoration, lamp decoration, signage, car decoration, solar heat collection and reflective materials, jewelry boxes, kitchen utensils, household appliances panels, electronic product shells, etc. It is a widely used aluminum plate product.
Mirror aluminum sheets are processed from ordinary aluminum plates. Here are two types of aluminum plates suitable for mirror processing.
Pure aluminum plate:
The common grades of pure aluminum plates are 1060, 1050, 1010, 1070, etc., which are the aluminum plates with the highest aluminum content, usually above 99%, and are also the most graded among all 8 series aluminum plates. The production process of pure aluminum plate is relatively simple, and the price is the cheapest among all 8 series aluminum plates. The pure aluminum plate is relatively soft in texture and can be bent and shaped. The processed mirror aluminum sheet is mostly used for various decoration and decoration projects.
5 series alloy aluminum plate:
The 5 series alloy plate is also a commonly used brand of mirror aluminum sheet, which is an aluminum plate with magnesium as the main alloying element. The 5 series aluminum plate has a magnesium content between 3-5% and is also called an aluminum-magnesium alloy. The main characteristics are low density, high tensile strength, and high elongation. In the same area, the weight of aluminum-magnesium alloy is lower than that of other series of aluminum plates, and it is widely used in auto parts, sheet metal parts, mechanical parts, automobiles, aircraft fuel tanks, warships, submarines, and containers. The 5 series aluminum plate is processed by continuous casting and rolling, which belongs to the hot-rolled aluminum plate series, so it can be oxidized. In order to be more beautiful, the household appliances panels, electronic product shells, signs, etc. that we use every day need a mirror effect, and the hardness and strength of the 5 series aluminum plates are more suitable for these industries than pure aluminum. Of course, in terms of price, the 5-series aluminum sheet is also much higher than the pure aluminum sheet.
