ALF1462 Aluminum Alloy 1100 Foil

Descriptions of Aluminum Alloy 1100 Foilaluminum-alloy-foil

A commercially pure aluminum, Aluminum alloy 1100 contains no more than one percent of other chemical elements. Aluminum Alloy 1100 is standard aluminum alloy containing a minimum of 99.0% aluminum. It is formable, weldable, and its ability to take a form is excellent. Typical markets include chemical equipment, reflectors, heat exchangers, architectural applications, and many more.

Advanced Refractory Metals is a leading supplier of Aluminum Alloy 1100 Foil. We offer competitive pricing and great lead times on all our materials, and we’re capable of supplying custom materials per any specs/drawings you provide us with.

Specifications of Aluminum Alloy 1100 Foil


This material will not age, but can oxidize when left in an extremely damp environment and/or when Exposed to extreme temperatures in both hot and cold environments.


Annealing, which may be necessary after cold working. The material is heated to 650°F and then air cooled.


Commonly used as tapes, fin stock, heat exchanger fins, tags, and names plates, Commercial filters, decorative applications, giftware, and reflectors, and in sheet metal work.

ASTM Standards:


Cold Working:

This is a excellent alloy for cold working because of the good malleability in the annealed temper. It can easily be bent, drawn, or spun into a variety of applications.


Standard Finishes

Forging – Hot Working:

Hot working can be conducted when needed. The alloy can be hot forged.

Forming – Welding:

Forming either hot or cold is readily accomplished with this alloy. In the annealed condition this alloy can be cold worked extensively without an intermediate anneal. Easily welded by all conventional methods.


Hardens during cold working only.

Heat Treatment:

This alloy does not respond to heat treatment other than to anneal the material into a soft or O Temper material.

Other Physical Properties:

Electrical conductivity is 53% of copper.

Principal Design Features:

This alloy is 99.0% min pure aluminum with excellent ability to be formed and worked.

QQA Standards:



This material is available in a variety of tempers.
