AA 3003 is alloyed with 1.20% manganese, which increases the strength of AA 3003 over commercially pure aluminium (1100 series). AA 3003 has excellent workability, weldability, and good corrosion resistance. It is used for drawing, forming, spinning, fuel tanks, sheet metal works and other applications that require moderate strength for an aluminium with good weldability.
Applications of Aluminium Alloy 3003
Aluminium alloy 3003 sheets exhibit moderate strength and very good corrosion resistance which makes it an ideal alloy to use for jacketing on mechanical insulation systems. It is widely used for stampings, spun and drawn parts and products, cooking utensils, chemical equipment, builders hardware, storage tanks, truck and trailer components, mail boxes, cabinets, fan blades, awnings, siding, kitchen equipment, decorative trim, architectural uses, signage applications
