3004 aluminum is a 3000-series aluminum alloy: the main alloying addition is manganese, and it is formulated for primary forming into wrought products. 3004 is the Aluminum Association (AA) designation for this material. In European standards, it will typically be given as EN AW-3004. AlMn1Mg1 is the EN chemical designation. A93004 is the UNS number. Additionally, the AFNOR designation is A-M1G.
3004 aluminium alloy is an alloy in the wrought aluminium-manganese family (3000 or 3xxx series). It is similar to the 3003 alloy, except for the addition of approximately 1% magnesium. It can be cold worked (but not, unlike some other types of aluminium alloys, heat treated) to produce tempers with a higher strength but a lower ductility. Like most other aluminium-manganese alloys, 3003 is a general-purpose alloy with moderate strength, good workability, and good corrosion resistance. It is commonly rolled and extruded, but typically not forged. As a wrought alloy, it is not used in casting
3004 aluminum sheet is commonly used to produce the body of cans, the light components. It can also be used for the processing and storage equipments of chemical products, sheet processing, some construction tools, etc.
It was developed to satisfy the need for thinner gauges in can-stock, and thereby to some extent replaced its predecessor 3003 alloy in the making of beverage cans. Can-stock can be made thinner due to the addition of 1% magnesium, which contributes in solid solution strengthening.
