These structured aluminium sheets are a great material for building and designing purposes because they are easy to work with, are lightweight and, not least, because they have a wonderful appearance. They can be used in interior work, trade show and exhibition constructions, for decorations or stage design, in photographic studios as reflection or background material and in architectural model making as well.
Cutting work on these sheets is best done with a saw, electric or air powered metal snips or a metal plate shears. When cutting by hand with a METAL SNIPS, keep in mind that the material will be lightly deformed in the process. Aluminium sheet can be successfully glued with two component glue like, for example, those based on cyanoacrylate; in model making, UHU HARD or RUDERER plastic glue can also be used. Aluminium cannot be soldered using conventional methods.
