Aluminium 1070 is an alloy that combines aluminium (97.8%-99.9%) with other elements, such as copper, for improved resistance to corrosion and precipitation hardening. The material has a high electrical conductivity, low mechanical strength and corrosion resistance, making it an ideal choice for applications where cost efficiency is important. It can also be used in complex shapes without losing its strength or physical properties due to the forming process. Its composition makes it versatile for manufacturing components in automotive, aerospace, defence and general engineering industries.
Aluminium 1070 bars are well-known for their strength and versatility. These bars have excellent welding characteristics, are highly resistant to corrosion and oxidation, and are non-magnetic. The 1070 alloy is specifically designed to meet the requirements of deep drawing applications like automotive components, trim components, kitchenware items such as utensils and other small machinery parts. Their superior physical properties are ideal for high-pressure applications like gas cylinders or tanks due to their strength and durability. Furthermore, they can be used in electrical conductors because of their good electrical conductivity properties.
