Aluminium 3003 bars are a popular aluminium alloy composed of 97.6% Aluminum and 2.4% Manganese and other trace elements, including Copper, Silica, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron. With its corrosion resistance capabilities, formability, and ease of welding properties, this alloy is an architectural material for external cladding applications such as wall panels or building facades. It's also frequently used in the transportation industry due to its lightweight characteristics, which make it ideal for auto body panels, bicycles or aircraft components.
Aluminium 3003 bars are the most commonly used aluminium alloy, known for their great strength and low weight. It's often used in structural applications such as aircraft construction, automotive parts manufacturing, and other industrial purposes. The alloy offers good corrosion resistance and weldability and is particularly useful in high-temperature environments because it retains its strength at temperatures up to 350°F (177°C). Other advantages include excellent machinability, good dimensional control during fabrication, high electrical conductivity, ductility when cold worked, and excellent thermal conductivity.
