3004 Aluminum Sheet

3004 aluminum sheet also belongs to the Al-Mn rustproof alloy series. Its strength is not high (slightly higher than that of industrial pure aluminum), but higher than that of 3003 aluminum sheet.

3003 Aluminum Sheet Applications

Main applications of 3004 aluminum steel plate: 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, cable pipes, sewers, kitchen utensils, heat sink, cosmetic board, etc.

Other properties for 3004 aluminum metal

Principal Design Features This is an alloy of aluminum with magnesium and manganese. It is strengthened (hardened) by cold work only as it does not respond to heat treatment, other than annealing.
Applications Commonly used in the manufacture of storage tanks. Is commonly used in sheet metal work.
Machinability The machinability of this alloy is considered to be excellent, especially in the hard temper. As is typical of the aluminum alloys an oil lubricant should be used for machining, although light cuts may be done dry.
Forming AL 3004 is easily formed by either cold or hot working with conventional tooling.
Welding The alloy is weldable by the standard methods. Best results are obtained by use of TIG or MIG welding with the same alloy as filler rod.
Heat Treatment Heat treatment has no effect upon this alloy. It may be annealed after cold working however. See “Annealing”.
Forging Forging may be accomplished in the range of 950 to 700 F.
Hot Working AL 3004 can be hot worked at temperatures of 900 to 500 F.
Cold Working Cold working capability of this alloy is good. it can readily be cold worked up to a 75% reduction of area by conventional methods. Working beyond the 75% reduction requires an intermediate anneal.
Annealing Anneal at 650 F and air cool.
Aging Not applicable to this alloy.
Tempering Not applicable.
Hardening/hardness Cold working is the only means of producing the harder (H) tempers of this alloy.
Other Physical Props Electrical conductivity 39% of copper.
Other Mechanical Props Shear strength for O temper is 16 ksi. H32 temper, 17 ksi and for H38 temper 21 ksi.
