Introduction to 3004 aluminum sheet/plate?

3004  aluminum sheet is a non-heat-treatable aluminum alloy with manganese as its primary alloying element. It is similar to 3003 except for the addition of approximately 1% magnesium. It can be used to produce tempers with a higher strength but a lower ductility.

3004 series also belongs to a series of aluminum manganese alloy. It has higher strength than 3003, excellent formability, and good corrosion resistance. It is required to have parts with higher strength than 3003 alloys.

Mainly used in chemical industry product production and storage devices, sheet processing parts, building materials, building baffles, cable ducts, sewers, various lamp parts, beverage cans, wave plates, building materials, color aluminum plates, and electric lamp heads. easy can pull (3004 alloys). The national standard for aluminum sheet and strip (GB / T 3880-2006) is applicable to the unified standard for aluminum alloy sheet and strip materials.

3004 aluminum sheet has two major advantages

1. The strength is higher than 3003 aluminum sheet

2. Good formability, weldability, and corrosion resistance

Applications for 3004 aluminum sheet

Main applications of 3004 aluminum sheet: Various lamp parts, Shutter materials, Wide-width curtain wall panels, LCD backing materials, Color coated aluminum substrate, etc.

In addition,3004 aluminum sheets can also be used in the sheet processing of various pressure vessels and pipes general utensils

3004 aluminum sheet is commonly used to produce the body of cans, the light components. It can also be used for the processing and storage equipments of chemical products, sheet processing, some construction tools, etc.
