Product Capacities of Alloy 3004

Typical Uses

3004 aluminum alloy is extensively used for packaging, particularly for manufacturing the bodies of beverage cans. This alloy is favored due to its excellent formability, which allows it to be easily shaped into cylindrical can bodies through high-speed stamping processes.

This alloy provides sufficient strength and ductility to withstand the pressures of carbonated beverages while maintaining a low wear rate. Its natural corrosion resistance ensures that the contents of the can remain uncontaminated, and its recyclability makes it an environmentally friendly choice for high-volume production in the beverage industry.

FAQs

What is the Difference Between 3003 and 3004 Aluminum?

The main difference between 3003 and 3004 aluminum lies in their chemical composition and strength. 3004 aluminum includes about 1% magnesium, which gives it higher strength compared to 3003 aluminum, which contains only manganese as its primary alloying element.

What is 3004 Aluminum Used for?

3004 aluminum is used in a variety of applications due to its good strength, excellent corrosion resistance, and formability. It is commonly used in 3004 aluminum sheet forms for beverage cans, chemical equipment, storage tanks, lamp bases, and cookware. Its properties make it suitable for applications that require both strength and resistance to environmental factors.
