1100 Aluminum 1100 is one of the softest aluminum alloys, which makes it unsuitable for high-pressure or high-strength applications. It is frequently cold-worked, but can be hot-worked as well. Most often, it is shaped by processes that do not require the use of high heat, such as spinning, stamping, and drawing.
