Aluminium Warehouse stock a wide range of Aluminium Plate in various thicknesses and grades. Using our ‘Cut To Size’ service you can have immediate access to custom sized plate at your fingertips. Simply input your dimensions and quantities above, for a quick and easy metal-buying experience.
Aluminium Plate is one of the most popular alloys. A blank canvas for many DIY and commercial applications. Typically used in components for:
- Rail cars
- Vehicle bodies
Aluminium alloys are alloys where the principal metal is aluminium.
Often referred to as N8, our Aluminium 5083 is known for exceptional performance in extreme environments. 5083 is highly resistant to attack by both seawater and industrial chemical environments.
Alloy 5083 also retains exceptional strength after welding. It has the highest strength of the non-heat treatable alloys but is not recommended for use in temperatures in excess of 65°C.
Also known in the metal industry as H30, our Aluminium alloy 6082 is
a medium strength alloy with excellent corrosion resistance. It has the highest strength of the 6000 series alloys.
Alloy 6082 is known as a structural alloy. In plate form, 6082 is the alloy most commonly used for machining.
Ecocast is a fine milled and high precision continuous cast aluminium tooling plate. Using this superior grade provides reduced set-up
times, reduced machining times and extended tool life.
Other benefits of this grade include; excellent machinability and weldability, high corrosion resistance and good low temperature properties.

METAL HOW YOU WANT IT
Our custom cutting services ensure you get the size you need at the highest quality. With ongoing investment into our plant and machinery combined with regular maintenance and calibration, we aim for consistency and exceptional results. We offer a range of services using the right equipment and skilled metal workers.
Bar Cutting - We specialise in short lead times and high volume production. To achieve this we use a range of CNC controlled twin pillar type bar saws, cutting to a maximum diameter of 12". We also have the facility to cut tubes and sections (Close tolerances available upon request).
Sheet Guillotining - High capacity hydraulic shearing to close tolerances. Maximum thickness 6mm for aluminium products. A temporary plastic coating will be applied to all of our sheet products prior to cutting, to ensure a scratch-free, clean surface. This coating is easy to peel off once you're ready to put the material in place.
Plate Sawing - Blanks cut to customer requirements on a +2mm/ -0mm tolerance. High volume production capabilities and short lead times are available. Currently we offer up to 4" (101.6mm) in thickness, with a maximum length 2500mm. Please note we stock all common commercial grades and speciality cast tooling plate. Any requirements outside of our standard offering, please feel free to email our sales team.
