In other words, aluminum strip is aluminum coil finished product through the slitting machine components cut into the required width according to the purpose. As we all know that the aluminum strip price contains two aspects, the price of aluminum ingot plus the cost of process, that is too say, with same grade, temper and thickness, the price of aluminum strip is higher because the process cost is higher than aluminum coil.
