In comparison to mild steel and stainless steel, aluminium offers medium strength depending on the grade of aluminium.
More expensive than stainless steel, aluminium sits between mild steel and stainless steel on price.
Aluminium will eventually rust when exposed to the elements but offers more protection than mild steel. A layer of powder coating can help protect aluminium in outdoor applications.
What is Aluminium?
Weighing one third of the weight of mild steel, aluminium is a versatile material ideal for perforated sheets. Aluminium is a silvery-white metal and is the most widespread metals on earth. Aluminium is ductile, durable and lightweight, making it one of the most popular materials to work with.
Aluminium is available in a variety of grades including 1000, 3000 and 5000 grades. Our most common grade is 1050, although we also work with 3003, 3103, 5083 and others.
