Aluminum Coil

Product Introduction of Aluminum Coil

Aluminum has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and is easy to form. Its natural corrosion resistance, which can be improved by anodizing, is one of its greatest benefits. The aluminum coil has a wide range of applications, from housing siding, trim strips, gutters, and roofing to cans, lids, bottle caps, and other food packaging, appliances, and electronics. Because it is a lightweight and durable material, it can also be found in the automotive industry.

Aluminum Coil
Description of Aluminum Coil

1100 is the softest aluminum available. It exhibits great ductility, corrosion resistance and high reflectivity. This grade of coil is commonly used for basic cookware, pots and pans and lids, lamps, lanterns, construction materials, traffic signs and ceilings.

1100-H18165 MPa / 24,000 psi22,0002

3003 aluminum has some of the best formability and is considered on of the most widely used aluminum alloys. It shares many of the same uses as 1100 aluminum, but shows better strength, for example. It can be purposed for more advanced cookware and non-stick pans.

The corrosion resistance of stainless steel coils decreases as the carbon content increases. Therefore, the carbon content of most stainless steels is low, up to 1.2%, and some steels have a low ωC (carbon content) of even less than 0.03% (such as 00Cr12). The main alloying element in stainless steel coil is Cr (chromium). Only when the Cr content reaches a certain value, the steel has corrosion resistance. Therefore, the goods Cr (chromium) content of at least 10.5%. Stainless steel coil also contains Ni, Ti, Mn, N, Nb, Mo, Si, Cu and other elements.

Most of the requirements for use are to maintain the original appearance of the building for a long time. In determining which type of goods to choose, the main considerations are the required aesthetic standards, the corrosiveness of the local atmosphere and the cleaning system to be used. However, other applications are increasingly seeking structural integrity or impermeability. Examples include roofs and sidewalls of industrial buildings. In these applications, construction cost to the owner may be more important than aesthetics, and the surface may not be very clean. The use of 304 stainless steel coils in dry interior environments is quite effective.

Weldability. Different product uses have different requirements for weldability. A class of tableware generally does not require weldability, even including some cookware companies. However, most products require raw materials with good weldability, such as second-class tableware, insulation cups, steel pipes, water heaters, water dispensers, etc.


Corrosion resistance. Most stainless steel coil products require good corrosion resistance, such as Class I or Class II tableware, kitchen utensils, water heaters, water dispensers, etc.


Polishing performance. In today’s society, stainless steel coil products in the production process are generally polished, only a few products such as water heaters, drinking fountains, etc. do not need to be polished. Therefore, this requires raw materials with good polishing performance.

1. The need for pre-treatment
Pretreatment is an important treatment step before the surface of stainless steel coil parts enter surface treatment (including pickling, chemical polishing and electrochemical polishing, electroplating, passivation, black coating, coloring, chemical treatment, etc.). During the forming process of goods parts, the surface may adhere to oil stains, burrs, rough surfaces and oxides. Therefore, before surface treatment, oil stains, burrs, uneven surfaces and oxides must be removed in order to obtain subsequent satisfactory results through processing.

2. Treatment of removed dirt

Stainless steel coil surface pretreatment in the need to remove the dirt can be divided into two categories: organic and inorganic substances.

(1) organic dirt. Including mineral oil (such as diesel, oil, paraffin, gypsum, etc.) and animal oil, vegetable oil (such as soybean oil, camellia oil, rapeseed oil, lard, butter, etc.). These oils are mainly from the stainless steel coil zero cattle processing process used in the lubricant. , cutting oil, quenching oil, polishing paste and polishing paste, and fingerprints.

(2) Inorganic dirt. Including dirt, dust particles, oxides and other contaminants generated during the heat treatment process.

3. Pretreatment steps for stainless steel coil parts

(1) The surface is mechanically leveled. Eliminate the roughness of the stainless steel coil surface, through mechanical polishing and grinding to achieve a surface finish.

(2) Degreasing. Remove the surface oil and dirt.

(3) Acid washing. Remove the oxides on the surface.

(4) Weak corrosion. Activates the surface to be treated, removes the surface passivation film, and exposes the metal crystal structure.

Stainless steel is a high-alloy steel, with a large resistance to rolling deformation. In order to carry out high-efficiency and high-precision rolling, rigid rolling mills should be used, generally multi-roller cold rolling mill.


Special welding process is also a feature of cold-rolled stainless steel coil production.


In the production process of cold rolled stainless steel coil, the raw material (hot rolled coil) should be annealed, intermediate annealing should be carried out in the cold rolling process, and the final product should be annealed, so annealing is an important part of the production.


Cold-rolled stainless steel is a high-grade steel products, there are strict requirements for surface quality. Not only are metallurgical defects caused by the previous process not allowed, but also obvious defects caused by the cold rolling process.
