3003 aluminum sheet is a very cost effective grade, as it combines substantial strength and corrosion resistance, with an attractive finish. It is used for stamped and formed parts and can be finished with mechanical and organic finishes.
The 3003 aluminum sheet is a pure aluminum that is used commercially. It’s moderately strong and can resist corrosion. Although it’s not heat treatable, it can be easily welded. It can also be formed using hot working and cold working methods. It is one of the alloys that have great machinability. When being forged with heat, it’s best for the temperature to range between 950 degrees and 500 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s best to use a filler rod like the AL 4043 when welding together 3003 aluminum with alloys like 5052, 6062 and 6061.
This aluminum grade can also be easily cold worked and has annealing capabilities, which should be done at 775 degrees Fahrenheit either during or after cold working. Afterward, air cooling should be allowed. The conductivity of 3003 alloys is 40 percent of copper.
3003 Aluminum Alloy contains Manganese as its major alloying element. 3003 Aluminum is an alloy with very good corrosion resistance and moderate strength. It is not heat treatable and develops strengthening from cold working only. 3003 Aluminum Alloy has good machinability and welding is readily accomplished by means of conventional welding methods. Commonly used in chemical equipment, ductwork, and in general sheet metal work. 3003 Aluminum is typically used in stampings and the manufacturing of pressure vessels, builder's hardware, garage doors, awning slats, refrigerator panels, gas lines, gasoline tanks, heat exchangers, drawn and spun parts, and storage tanks. All of our 3003 Aluminum Sheet is protected on one side with a protective vinyl film.
3003 is alloyed with 1.2% maganese to provide a tensile strength range of 17 to 30 KSI. 3003 has Excellen workability, weldability, and corrosion resistance.
Used for sheet metal work, fuel tanks, and other applications that require a slightly higher strength than 1100 series aluminum. Conforms to AMS QQ-A-250/2 and ASTM B209.
3003-H14 Aluminum Sheet - (ASTM B209, QQ-A-250/2) Excellent weldability and formability, with good corrosion resistance makes 3003 Aluminum Sheet a popular and economical choice. 3003 Aluminum Sheet has a smooth, semi-shiny finish and is popular for many applications, including: fuel tanks, food & chemical handling, trailer siding & roofing, etc. Mill Finish - Not Polished
Non-magnetic, Brinell = 40, Tensile = 22,000, Yield = 21,000 (+/-)
The reason this metal is widely used is because it is affordable and strong. Compared to the 1100 series of alloys, 3003 aluminum is 20 percent stronger. This is due to it being integrated with 1.20 percent manganese. It is considered a pure aluminum and is frequently used in various applications, such as for storage tanks, tool boxes, walkways, truck beds, decorative trim and chemical equipment. It can also be used to create fan blades, siding, trailer components, kitchen equipment, cooking utensils and for signage applications.
FEATURES: Excellent at resisting moisture and strong for its light weight.
WORKABLE: Welds well with the proper equipment. Easy to Drill, Machine, Shear and Form.
USES: Skinning Frames, Truck Beds, Tool Boxes, Trays, Drip Pans, Ornamental Work, Etc.
3003 aluminum has a lot of great characteristics that make it a popular choice. Other than being weldable and corrosion-resistant, it also has a surface that has a highly polished finish, making it an attractive choice. Although thin, it cannot be bent easily, instead requiring special tools to do so.
Aluminum Sheet 3003 H14 Bare is an excellent choice for chemical equipment and general sheet metal projects due to its superior corrosion resistance and good workability. Aluminum 3003 H14 bare sheet works well in fabrication and decorative architectural uses because it is highly workable, formable, and weldable, while being capable of withstanding outdoor weather.
