Product Capacities of Alloy 3003

Typical Uses

The 3003 aluminum alloy is extensively used in the construction industry for its excellent formability and corrosion resistance. It is often used in the form of 3003 aluminum sheets.

It is ideal for aluminum roofing and aluminum cladding materials, providing durability and weather resistance. Its lightweight nature and ease of shaping make it suitable for manufacturing building hardware such as gutters, downspouts, and aluminum siding, as well as components like hinges and locks.
Additionally, it is valued for its cost-effectiveness in general sheet metal work.

FAQs

What is the Difference Between 3003 and 6061 Aluminum?

The main differences between aluminum alloy 3003 and 6061 lie in their composition, strength, and typical applications. 3003 aluminum is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, good formability, and moderate strength. In contrast, 6061 aluminum offers higher strength and good machinability. Additionally, 6061 can be heat-treated to enhance its strength, whereas 3003 cannot.
