General Info About 3004 Aluminum Sheet

3004 aluminum is a widely used alloy with high strength, good formability, good workability, excellent corrosion resistance, and drawing characteristics. It is non-heat treatable and shares many of the same applications as 3003 aluminum sheet.

More Details About Aluminum 3004

  • Advantages/Disadvantages

    3004 aluminum is a general purpose alloy with excellent corrosion resistance. Its composition is similar to 3003 aluminum sheet, however, a slight addition of magnesium increases its strength. One disadvantage of this grade is that it cannot be heat treated.

  • Industries

    It is often seen in the packaging industry and kitchen and cookware manufacturing.

  • Applications

    It is good for drawn and ironed rigid containers (beverage cans), chemical handling and storage equipment, sheet metal work, builders’ hardware, incandescent and fluorescent lamp bases. It is also used in similar applications to 3003, requiring good formability and higher strength.

  • Machining

    It has excellent machinability.

  • Welding

    It has good weldability.

  • Heat Treatment

    It is non-heat treatable.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's the difference between 3003 and 3004 aluminum?


    These two general purpose alloys are very similar. In terms of their chemical composition, 3004 aluminum has an addition of magnesium which gives this grade the upper hand when it comes to strength.

  • Is 3004 aluminum used for cookware?


    Yes, this grade is commonly used in kitchen and cookware manufacturing.

  • What are 3004 uses?


    It has many uses due to good strength, excellent corrosion resistance, good formability, good workability and drawing characteristics. This includes beverage cans, chemical equipment, hardware, storage tanks, and lamp bases. Because it is so similar to 3003, it will be seen in similar applications, and especially those requiring higher strength.
