What is 3003 aluminum sheet?

3003 aluminum sheet is an AL-Mn alloy. It is a common product in the aluminum-manganese alloy series and is currently the most widely used anti-rust aluminum. The strength of 3003 aluminum plate is not high, but it has good formability and high corrosion resistance. Because it contains manganese alloy element, its anti-rust performance is also very good, and it is also called anti-rust aluminum plate.

General applications of 3003 aluminum plates

3003 aluminum plates are mainly used for low-load parts that require high plasticity and good weldability and work in liquid or gas media, such as kitchen utensils, food and chemical product processing and storage devices, tanks and tanks for transporting liquid products, and are processed with thin plates Various pressure vessels and pipes, general utensils, heat sinks, cosmetic boards, photocopier rollers, and ship materials.
