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.
