3003 2mm thick aluminum sheet plate is a commercially pure aluminum with the addition of manganese. 3003 is the most widely used aluminum alloy due to it’s excellent characteristics. The addition of manganese increases the strength and 3003 is 20% stronger than 1100 . As with 1100, 3003 has excellent corrosion resistance and workability. It is commonly used in Chemical equipment, Cooking and Kitchen equipment, decorative trim and storage tanks
The H14 in this 3003 2mm thick aluminum sheet plate designates its temper, and also means that it’s partially annealed and strain hardened. This makes this metal easy to form. Another type of 3003 H14 aluminum plate is the diamond plate, which consists of the same properties. This diamond-patterned plate is slip-resistant and offers aesthetic appeal. It’s also lightweight, yet strong.
Machining Machinability of 3003 2mm thick aluminum sheet plate the softer tempers O and H12 is poor, with the harder tempers such as H14 and above being somewhat easier to machine. Treadplate Treadplate in alloy 3003 is typically used in decorative architectural applications, due to its bright reflective finish. It is usually produced in a “1-bar” or “propeller” tread pattern. Alloy 3003 treadplate is available on indent from Atlas. Typical Applications cooking utensils, decorative trim, awnings, siding, storage tanks, chemical equipment.
