Aluminum 3003 H14
Aluminum 3003 H14 is a versatile and cost-effective aluminum alloy that offers good corrosion resistance, high formability, and excellent workability. It has a smooth, shiny surface and is commonly used in sheet metal applications due to its lightweight nature and ability to be easily bent, formed, and shaped. The H14 temper designation signifies that the material has been strain hardened and partially annealed, which improves its strength and hardness.
Aluminum 3003 H14 is commonly used in the manufacturing of sheet metal parts, including panels, ducts, and cabinets. It is also widely used in the packaging industry for the production of food and beverage cans, as well as in the construction industry for the production of roofing and siding materials. Due to its excellent corrosion resistance, it is often used in marine and chemical processing applications as well.
FastMetals offers Aluminum 3003 H14 in several forms, including sheet and tread brite sheet/plate. The sheet product is available in a variety of thicknesses and sizes and is commonly used in the manufacturing of sheet metal parts. The tread sheet/plate product features raised diamond-shaped patterns on its surface for improved slip resistance, and is commonly used in flooring and stair treads.
