1/16 aluminum sheet

1/16 aluminum sheet means that its actual thickness is 1/16 inch thick, which is 1.5875 mm in millimeters. There are mainly 1, 3, 5, and 6 series of alloy aluminum sheet that can be rolled into this specification. The tensile strength and elongation of 1/16 inch aluminum sheet are relatively high, and the application fields are also very wide.


The application of 1/16 inch aluminum sheet

There are various aluminum alloy series that can be rolled into 1/16 inch aluminum sheet. These alloys can also be rolled into 1mm aluminum sheet, which is not much different from 1/16 inch in thickness. Their respective uses are also different.


1xxx series aluminum alloy rolled into 1/16 inch thick aluminum sheet can be used for cosmetic caps, wine bottle caps, pipe insulation, auto parts, etc. after stamping.

The thickness of 3xxx series aluminum alloy sheet is between 0.2-4.5mm and can be used as high-performance deep-drawing materials for mobile phone battery shells, can materials, pressure vessel materials, checkered plates, lamp cap materials, etc.

The 1/16 aluminum sheet of 5xxx series aluminum alloy has high tensile strength and high elongation. Its typical application scenarios are ship plates, checkered plates, fuel tank materials, automobiles, and electronic processing industries.

The 6xxx series of 1/16 aluminum sheet has high processing performance and corrosion resistance. It is commonly used as aluminum for automobiles, and can also be used in the manufacture of molds and mobile phone computer cases.

Weight and price of 1/16 thick aluminum sheet

If you want to know the weight and price of 1/16 aluminum sheet, you need to go through the following steps to calculate the total weight and price of this aluminum sheet.


1. First determine the length and width of the sheet, then combine the thickness of 1/16 inch and the number of sheet to calculate the volume of the sheet (in meters).

2. Then multiply the aluminum density number of 2.71g/cm³ to calculate the total weight of the sheet (in tons).

3. Finally, the sum of the price of aluminum ingots (in tons) and the manufacturer’s customized processing costs (in tons) is multiplied by the total weight of 1/16 aluminum sheet to get the final result Total cost.

For example, a project needs to purchase 100 sheets  with a length of 1.5m , a width of 0.1m, and a thickness of 1/16 inch thick. The price of aluminum ingots on that day is US$2,900/ton, and the manufacturer’s custom processing fee is US$500/ton. , The total price of purchasing this batch of 1/16 aluminum sheet is:
(2900 + 500) * 100 * 1.5 * 0.1 * 1.5875 * 2.71 / 1000 ≈ 219.4 USD;

So the price of this batch is almost US$219.4, but the minimum order quantity when purchasing from the manufacturer is generally at least 2-3 tons, so the calculation formula given here is for reference only as to how much aluminum sheet is. The actual price depends on different specifications.
