3003 Aluminum Plate

3003 plate

Characteristics

3003 aluminum plate exhibits moderate strength and very high corrosion resistance.  It is used for stamped parts, as it tends to be gummy when machined thus requiring special handling. There may be slight discoloration when anodized, but it reacts well to mechanical and organic finishings.  3003 aluminum plate is easily welded and brazed, but when soldered, it is limited to the torch method.          

Applications

3003 aluminum plate is mainly used to manufacture stamped parts that require moderate strength and low weight. These include:

  • equipment specified for food and chemical handling
  • appliance components
  • roofing for trucks and trailers
  • heat exchangers
  • pipe jacketing
  • hardware
  • catwalks
  • floor panels
  • lawn furniture components.
