Aluminum

AMS Resources, Inc. is a supplier of Aluminum in a range of different grades, shapes and sizes. Aluminum, the most widely used nonferrous metal, is a bountiful metallic element in Earth’s crust. This metal and its alloys are utilized for building materials, consumer durables, chemical and food-processing equipment, aircraft construction, electrical conductors, and more. We stock a wide variety aluminum materials. If you seek a material that isn’t listed, contact us so we can assist in looking for an alternate grade that is more readily available or we can go to the mill and have it produced in mill quantities.

1000 Series Aluminum

1000 series are essentially pure aluminum with a 99% aluminum content by weight and can be work hardened.

1100
99.6% pure aluminum alloy with excellent forming characteristics

2000 Series Aluminum

2000 series are alloyed with copper, can be precipitation hardened to strengths comparable to steel. Formerly referred to as duralumin, they were once the most common aerospace alloys, but were susceptible to stress corrosion cracking and are increasingly replaced by 7000 series in new designs.
