Our aluminium flat bar is suitable for any application where a high strength, low weight material is required, and it is available in lengths pre-cut to your requirements. Simply enter the size of flat bar you require into the price calculator below.
Non-ferrous metals are so called because they do not contain iron. This results in a fantastically lightweight material which is also non-magnetic and highly resistant to corrosion, especially that caused by oxygen. Aluminium is a high performance and versatile alternative to steel thanks to these qualities and also its superb formability; and it can be worked and fabricated easily without breaking.
Metal Mate aluminium flat bar
is lightweight and easy to work with, available in various widths and lengths. All profiles are in mill finish.
Pure aluminum has a conductivity of about 65 percent of the International Annealed Copper Standard (lACS). Aluminum can be produced 99.99 percent pure; however, this purity is costly to achieve and the mechanical properties are low.
Aluminum 1350 is a commercial high-purity aluminum with 61 percent conductivity. The tensile strength of each 1350 temper is determined by the amount of work given the metal during fabrication. Today, most 1350 aluminum bus conductors are of -Hlli temper for extrusions, -H112 for sawed rolled plate, and -F for cast bars.
Other aluminum alloys may be used for bus conductors. However, they should be used with care since conductivity and mechanical properties can be greatly affected by small amounts of alloying elements.
