Aluminium 3003 Bar, Sheet, Plate

Aluminium alloy 3003 contains about 1.25% manganese and 0.1% copper, which increase the strength above the 1000 series aluminium grades. It is a medium strength alloy, hardenable only by cold work – it is not heat treatable. It has good weldability, formability and corrosion resistance. Typical Applications General sheet metal work requiring greater strength than is provided by 1000 series alloys; profiled building sheet (roofing and siding); insulation panels; holloware; food and chemical handling and storage equipment.

Aluminum 3003 is a popular alloy that offers customers very good atmospheric corrosion resistance and moderate strength. Aluminum 3003 offers good machinability for aluminum alloys, though it is not heat treatable. Unlike other aluminum alloys, 3003 is weldable by conventional welding methods. It also takes cold and hot working well and has generally better mechanical properties when compared to 1000 series aluminum alloys.
