Aluminum alloy tube 1060, high electrical conductivity, corrosion
1050 aluminium alloy is an aluminium-based alloy in the "commercially pure" wrought
family (1000 or 1xxx series). As a wrought alloy, it is not used in
castings. Instead, it is usually formed by extrusion or rolling. It
is commonly used in the electrical and chemical industries, on
account of having high electrical conductivity, corrosion
resistance, and workability.
1050 alloy is also sometimes used for the manufacture of heat
sinks, since it has a higher thermal conductivity than other
alloys. It has low mechanical strength compared to more
significantly alloyed metals. It can be strengthened by cold
working, but not by heat treatment.
Alternate names and designations include Al99.5, 3.0255, and
A91050. It is described in the following standards:
ASTM B 491: Standard Specification for Aluminum and Aluminum-Alloy
