3003-H14 Aluminum

3003 Aluminum is alloyed with 1.20% manganese, which increases the strength of 3003 over commercially pure aluminum (1100 series). 3003 has excellent workability, weldability, and good corrosion resistance. It is used for drawing, forming, spinning, fuel tanks, sheet metal works and other applications that require moderate strength for an aluminum with good weldability. H14 designates the temper, and means that 3003 has been strain hardened and partially annealed. In this condition, 3003 can be easily formed. Embossing or debossing 3003 in this temper should not strain or crack the aluminum.   3003 ALUMINUM TREAD PLATE - Often referred to as diamond plate, it has the same properties of 3003-H14, while excellent at resisting corrosion, and strong for light weight aluminum applications. The diamond trend pattern is slip-resistant and cosmetically appealing.
