Precautions for AMS 4001 1100-0 and AMS 4003 1100-H14 Sheet and Plate aluminum sheets

Prevent mechanical damage: 1100 aluminum alloy is a relatively soft metal, so care should be taken to prevent mechanical damage during transportation, processing and use, such as collisions, abrasions, scratches, etc.

Avoid corrosion: although 1100 aluminum alloy has good corrosion resistance, it may still be corroded in certain environments. During use, care should be taken to avoid contact between the aluminum plate and corrosive media, such as acidic, alkaline, and chloride-containing media.

Correct processing and installation: 1100 aluminum alloy has good machinability and weldability, but care should be taken to follow the correct process and standards during processing and installation to avoid quality problems caused by improper processing.

Select the appropriate state and specification of aluminum plate: 1100 aluminum alloy plates in different states have different physical and mechanical properties, and the state and specification suitable for specific applications should be selected to meet the use requirements.
