Aluminium suppliers frequently asked questions:

There are different aluminium alloys because aluminium, in its pure form, has certain limitations and characteristics that may not be suitable for all applications. By alloying aluminium with other elements, engineers and manufacturers can tailor its properties to meet specific requirements, such as:

  • Enhanced strength
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Heat resistance
  • Lightweight properties
  • Formability and weldability
  • Electrical conductivity
  • Cost considerations.

Aluminium tempers, or aluminium temper designations, refer to the specific heat treatment and mechanical processing applied to aluminium alloys to achieve desired properties and characteristics. There are different aluminium tempers because these treatments allow manufacturers and engineers to tailor the material’s properties to meet specific requirements and applications.

Yes – for aluminium rolled products our products comply with AS/NZS 1734:1997 Aluminium and aluminium alloys—Flat sheet, coiled sheet and plate (re-confirmed in 2020). For aluminium extruded products our products comply with AS/NZS 1866:1997 – Aluminium and aluminium alloys – Extruded rod, bar, solid and hollow shapes (re-confirmed in 2020).

Our range of mill-finish aluminum sheet, coil, and plate products, up to 6.30mm thickness, has been independently tested in accordance with AS 1530.1-1994 standards by CSIRO in Australia, ensuring compliance with Australian combustibility test requirements for materials.
