"The White Metal"

New West Metals Inc. Offers a complete range of stocked Aluminum Alloys for numerous industries in Western Canada. Below you will find an overview of the vast Aluminum product lines that are available from your "One Stop Shopping Center" New West Metals Inc.

Aluminum is one of the most versatile materials available today. Due to its unique combination of characteristics there is an Aluminum Alloy to fit almost any application.

One of Aluminum features is a high resistance to corrosion due to the natural oxide film that forms when exposed to air. Some Aluminum alloys are stronger than structural steel yet much lighter. Aluminum is the most widely used non-ferrous metal. 

Aluminum is one of the two metals having electrical conductivity high enough for use as electrical conductors. Aluminum is almost always alloyed which improves its mechanical properties, especially when tempered.

New West Metals Inc. offers a complete line of Aluminum Alloys from both stock and our many mill sources.

Aluminum comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and grades:

Round, Square, Hexagon, Flat, Accu-Bar, Angle, Channel, Sheet, Plate, Beam, Tread Plate, Coil, Strip, Tube, Pipe, Bus Bar-Bare and Tin Plated, Bus Pipe, Fittings, Painted and Anodized Sheet. 

Aluminum Grades: 6061, 6063, 6101, 5052, 2024, 7075, 3003, 5086, 1100, 2011 

Aluminum comes in Non-Heat Treatable and Heat Treatable Alloys.

Non Heat Treatable Aluminum Alloys 
Alloy Characteristics

1100 - Excellent corrosion resistance high thermal and electrical conductivity excellent workability readily welded and brazed.

1350 - Used for electrical conductivity

3003 - High resistance to corrosion, multi usage, medium strength and good workability and weldability.

5005 - Moderate to high strength, good welding properties, and good corrosion resistance, forms easily, excellent for anodizing since it exhibits less tendency to structural streaking. 

5052 - Excellent resistance to salt water corrosion, high strength than 1100, 3003 alloys and good workability and weldability.

5086 - Good forming properties, excellent corrosion resistance in marine environments, excellent weldability, stronger than 5052.

6061 - Very versatile alloy with good formability and high resistance to corrosion. 

6063 - High corrosion resistance, average strength and good finish. 

6101 - Excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, used for electrical conductors. 

7075 - One of hardest and strongest alloys available, good machinability and fair corrosion resistance. 

2024 - High strength, formability and workability is medium and may be spot welded.
