A bustling city at the heart of New South Wales, Sydney is brimming with development and new opportunities. As the city grows, so do its people. That’s why builders turn to quality standard metal products to build infrastructure, residential and commercial buildings, and transport. When it comes to quality metal, aluminium is one of the top choices for buildings and infrastructure because of its benefits, such as strength and malleability. BlueScope Sheet Metal Supplies Sydney is a prime source for high quality aluminium products for application in many sectors, including building and construction.
Aluminium is the most abundant metal on earth, which is why it’s not surprising that it’s commonly used in a number of applications, such as engineering and construction, infrastructure, residential and commercial buildings, mining, oil, and gas, transport and automotive, general manufacturing, agriculture and farming, renewable energy, and more. Its remarkably low density and weight makes for a metal that is surprisingly strong and can resist corrosion. Australia is the sixth largest producer of aluminium in the world. Locally, BlueScope Sheet Metal Supplies is the prime choice for aluminium products in Sydney.
BlueScope Sheet Metal Supplies Sydney offers a comprehensive selection of aluminium products that meet global standards. From sheet and coil products to plate and tread plate, our aluminium customers can enjoy the satisfaction of using high quality aluminium that is lightweight, strong, and easily formable and welded to suit our customer’s project requirements. We offer many aluminium grades for a number of applications. Alloys 6063 and 6060 feature good corrosion resistance because of the low percentage of magnesium used. Meanwhile, Alloy 6061 is a heat-treatable alloy that’s great for transport-related industries. Like Alloy 6061, Alloy 6106 features good machinability and is great for light structural applications. For high-strength aluminium, choose Alloy 6082, which is optimal for welding processes and fabrication.
Its high manganese content provides superior control over the metal’s grain structure. Alloy 5083 delivers exceptional performance in extreme environments, as it is resistant to the effects of seawater and can be used in marine applications.
Our Aluminium customers can also access a range of geometric and exclusive extrusion shapes in a variety of different alloys and temper combinations, as well as coloured finishes. Designed for general engineering and fabrication applications in sectors such as marine, transport, automotive, building, and more, these aluminium products come in a variety of profiles. Customers can choose from flat bars, angles, rounds & tubes, squares and channels. BlueScope Sheet Metal Supplies also offers a unique 3D printing technology that lets us create a new aluminium extrusion die using your drawing, resulting to a model for customers to save time and money in the process of casting dies. This helps customers eliminate errors and ensure that the product is fit for purpose.
