J57sUP was specially developed to cater for the modern requirements of high quality anodised facades.
The alloy's chemical composition is set within very narrow limits and in such a way that the anodised facade exhibits a striking metallic appearance.
Higher levels of manganese (Mn) and copper (Cu) in the composition compared to standard 5005 (AlMg1) alloys, together with a sophisticated manufacturing process, provide the platform for optimum uniformity in colour tone and gloss levels - even when using J57sUP from different production batches.
Aluminium is a non combustible product and so J57sUP benefits from having a A1 non combustible rating. This means that it does not ignite, produces very little smoke and does not drip when exposed to fire.
In addition to this, aluminium is a very good conductor of heat meaning that when exposed to fire, the heat is radiated away across the surface of the metal.
In the UK we hold standard stock of sheets from 1.5mm to 3.0mm thick. The widths that we offer are upto 1500mm in 1.5mm and upto 2000mm wide in 2.0mm and 3.0mm.
Decoiled to size
As well as supplying standard sizes from stock, we also have the capabilities to offer decoiled to size for specific projects.
Our coil processing division is the only approved decoiler of J57s UP in the UK meaning that we can offer a quick lead time on non standard sheets between 300mm and 6000mm long.
By using bespoke sizes, we can save you scrap, processing time and weight on your project.
Our ability to reduce your material, scrap and labour costs by supplying exact sheet sizes means that we can make you more competitive when quoting on projects.
