What is Aluminium?
Aluminium is a silver-coloured, low density metal. It finds use in a huge variety of commercial applications. The Unalloyed type is ductile, exhibits moderate strength, and is very resistant to corrosion under most circumstances. Aluminium is one of the most popular materials to use partly due to the number of finishes that can be applied to it. Anodising aluminium allows for the aluminium to have greater corrosion resistance as well as being able to dye the aluminium to a range of colours providing a classy aesthetically pleasing end product.
Aluminium changed the metalwork game when it was introduced, thanks to its superior durability, reliability, flexibility and design potential. Luckily, you’ll find high quality aluminium kick plate right here at London Metal Store, including metal cut to size to meet your needs.

Grades of Aluminium
Aluminium is available in a number of various grades, and by far the most common amongst these grades are 1000 series, 5000 series and 6000 series. We stock all three grades and our sheet metal is typically sold in 1000 series and 5000 series. The 6000 series consists of magnesium and silicon making it the preferred grade for producing extrusions, bar and machining operations. The 1000 series has a very high content of pure aluminium with in its composition making it extremely corrosion resistant but also structurally the weakest strength amongst the various grades of aluminium. It is the most common grade of aluminium sheet sold in the market. The 5000 series of aluminium is the most common grade sold here at London Metal store with it typically being known as the marine grade of aluminium. As expected, it has great corrosion resistance and since it is of medium strength it is a great option for most applications.
