A highly sought after alloy, Aluminum 1100 offers excellent machinability as well as maintaining strength in low temperatures and electrical conductivity. There are a number of commercial and industrial applications, for Aluminum 1100 that include:
- Fin stock
- Heat exchanger fins
- Spun hollowware
- Dials and nameplates
- Shapes for engraving and stamping
- Lightweight tools
- Food containers
- Household foil
- Cooking utensils
- Sheet metal work
