3mm Aluminum Sheet: Costs

Table of Contents

3mm aluminum sheet refers to a plate made of aluminum metal or aluminum alloy, with a thickness of 3 mm. 3mm aluminum plate is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, high-strength, and easy to process, so it is widely used in aerospace, automobiles, construction, electronics, furniture and other fields.

The prices of 3mm aluminum sheets from different manufacturers vary. The large price difference is mainly caused by the different materials and production processes of aluminum plates sheets as well as the different costs of raw materials for aluminum plates production. Specifications and sizes are also one of the important factors affecting the price of 3mm aluminum plates. They can have a certain impact on the price, although the size of the impact depends on the specific circumstances.

3mm aluminum sheets plates

The normal price of Yongsheng’s conventional 3mm aluminum sheet is generally around US$17 per square meter. Many common aluminum sheet grades such as 1050, 1060, 1100, 3003, 5052, 6061 aluminum plates, etc. can be processed to 3mm.

Advantages Of 3mm Aluminum Sheet:

1. Light weight, good rigidity, high strength, The minimum tensile strength of 1000 series aluminum is 60Mpa; the minimum tensile strength of 3000 series aluminum is 95Mpa; the minimum tensile strength of 5000 series aluminum is 100Mpa.

2. Good durability and corrosion resistance. Yongsheng can provide you with various color coatings, using PE or PVDF fluorocarbon paint, which can be used for 25 years without fading.

3. Good craftsmanship. Using the process of painting after processing, the aluminum plate can be processed into various complex geometric shapes such as plane, arc and spherical surfaces.

4. Uniform coating and various colors. The advanced electrostatic spraying technology makes the adhesion between the paint and the aluminum plate even and consistent, with various colors and a large selection space.

5. Not easy to stain, easy to clean and maintain. The non-adhesiveness of the fluorine coating film makes it difficult for pollutants to adhere to the surface, and it has good cleanliness.

6. The installation and construction are convenient and quick. The aluminum plate is formed in the factory, and there is no need to cut it on the construction site, just fix it on the skeleton.

7. It can be recycled and reused, which is beneficial to environmental protection. Aluminum plate can be 100% recycled, which is different from decorative materials such as glass, stone, ceramics, aluminum-plastic panels, etc., and has a high recycling residual value.

What Are The Factors That Affect The Price Of 3mm Aluminum Sheet?

International Aluminum Ingot Prices And Manufacturers

Changes in the price of aluminum ingots have the greatest impact on the price of aluminum plates, and changes in the price of aluminum ingots directly determine the rise and fall of the current price of aluminum plates. As the most important raw material for the production of aluminum plates, the price of aluminum ingots is constantly fluctuating in the futures market, and the price varies from moment to moment, resulting in continuous fluctuations in the production costs of manufacturers with the price of aluminum ingots; while the pricing of domestic aluminum plate manufacturers is based on “” Aluminum ingot price + processing cost”, so the cost of aluminum plates produced in different batches is also different.

Before aluminum product manufacturers supply aluminum sheets, their price determination will be based on factors such as product quality, sales volume, and product brand. Moreover, for the large-scale production of large-scale processing factories, compared with small-scale production, the price of the products sold is relatively cheaper, and they are mainly sold in large quantities at lower prices, which is often the choice of consumers with large purchases. factory.

Production Process And Alloy Composition

There are hundreds of grades of aluminum plates in 8 series, the thin ones are less than one millimeter, and the thick ones are tens of centimeters. Different production processes and alloy components determine the huge difference in cost. Factors such as the thickness, length, width and surface painting of the aluminum plate determine the price of the aluminum veneer. Moreover, some consumers will make drawings according to the shape they want, and then process them for the manufacturer. This is a special customization, and the price will naturally be higher; and it will also be affected by the price of raw materials after processing. s price. For example, for the same 3mm aluminum plate, the production cost of 1060 pure aluminum plate is 2-3 times higher than that of 6061. Generally speaking, the thicker the aluminum plate, the larger the cross-sectional area, the better the mechanical and chemical properties, and the higher the production cost.

Personnel, Warehousing, Transportation And Processing Costs

Although these factors have the least impact on the price of aluminum plates, in the long run, the increasing cost of personnel, storage, and transportation will also cause the price of aluminum plates to rise; and many customers will require secondary cutting and processing of aluminum plates, and the processing costs will naturally increase. Will affect the final price of the aluminum plate.

How To Cut 3mm Aluminum Sheet?

  • Mechanical cutting: Mechanical cutting is a common cutting method that can be performed using equipment such as shears, shears, or sheet metal cutting machines. These devices cut aluminum panels along predetermined cutting lines by applying shear force. Mechanical cutting is suitable for shorter straight cuts and can complete the task quickly and efficiently.
  • Laser cutting: Laser cutting is a precision cutting method that uses high-energy, dense laser beams to cut aluminum plates. Laser cutting can achieve cutting of complex shapes with high cutting quality and precision. It is suitable for cutting tasks with high precision and detail requirements, but the equipment and operating costs are relatively high.
  • Water jet cutting: Water jet cutting is a method of cutting aluminum plates using high-speed water jets. Water jet cutting is suitable for a variety of materials, including aluminum plates, and can achieve higher cutting speeds and better cut quality. In addition, water jet cutting is also an environmentally friendly cutting method.
  • CNC cutting: CNC cutting is a method of automated cutting using CNC equipment. Equipment such as CNC shears and CNC laser cutting machines can be used to achieve precise and efficient cutting operations through pre-programmed instructions. CNC cutting is suitable for mass production and complex shape cutting needs.

In short, 3mm only represents the thickness of the aluminum plate, and does not show the specific grade, state, length, width, surface treatment and other factors. If you want to know more about the price of 3mm aluminum sheet, I can simply tell you the general situation: Generally speaking, the popular 1xxx series aluminum alloys such as 1050, 1060, and 1100 aluminum plates are commonly used in the OH state, and the price is relatively cheap. , mainly used in the construction industry. In contrast, 3003 aluminum sheet belongs to the cold rolling process and is also commonly used in construction, but its strength is higher than that of 1000 series aluminum sheet, and the price is also high. The price of 5000 series aluminum such as 5052 aluminum plate, 5083 aluminum plate and 5754 aluminum plate is higher than that of 3xxx aluminum plate. If you want to oxidize, coat or emboss the aluminum sheet, there will be additional processing costs.
