What Is 3000 Series Anti-Rust Aluminum Plate?

Table of Contents

3000 series anti-rust aluminum plate is also called aluminum-manganese alloy aluminum plate. The content of manganese element is 1-1.5%. It is a widely used anti-rust aluminum alloy series. The strength of the 3-series aluminum alloy is higher than that of pure aluminum alloy. Strengthening performance, but it has good plasticity after cold working (sub-cold rolling) and annealing process, because of its good corrosion resistance and welding performance, it can be used in many industries, such as architectural decoration industry, electronics manufacturing, automobile manufacturing, etc.

Characteristics Of 3000 Series Anti-Rust Aluminum Plate

3000 series anti-rust aluminum plate includes 3003, 3004, 3105 and other alloys, which have excellent corrosion resistance and good mechanical properties. In terms of mechanical properties, the tensile strength of 3000 series aluminum plate is usually between 110 and 205 MPa, while the yield strength can vary between 55 and 155 MPa. The elongation at break is generally around 20% to 30%, indicating good formability and ductility.

Speaking of physical properties, the melting point of 3000 series aluminum sheet is around 660 degrees Celsius. The density of these sheets is about 2.7 g/cm3, which is relatively low compared to other metals, which is also a manifestation of the light weight of aluminum sheets. Regarding the coefficient of thermal expansion, aluminum has a coefficient of thermal expansion ranging from 23.8 to 24.2 × 10^(-6)/°C, which allows it to expand and contract moderately with temperature changes. The modulus of elasticity of this series is typically in the range of 69 to 73 GPa, with good resilience. The thermal conductivity of 3xxx series aluminum sheets ranges from approximately 120 to 180 W/m K and the electrical conductivity is typically between 30 and 40 MS/m. From the perspective of the main chemical composition, the 3000 series aluminum plate mainly uses aluminum as the main element, and a small amount of other alloying elements are added. For example, 3003 aluminum alloy contains approximately 98.6% aluminum and 1.2% manganese (Mn), while 3004 and 3105 alloys can be doped with additional elements such as copper (Cu) or magnesium (Mg) to enhance specific properties.

Advantages Of 3000 Series Anti-rust Aluminum Plate

Series 3 rust-resistant aluminum sheet offers several advantages over other materials, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of applications. Here are some notable advantages:

Corrosion resistance:

Compared with the 1000 series aluminum represented by 1050 and 1100 alloys, the 3 series aluminum plate has stronger corrosion resistance. The 1xxx series aluminum lacks alloying elements that enhance corrosion resistance and may require additional protective coatings in corrosive environments.

Formability and ductility:

3000 series aluminum sheet has excellent formability and ductility, easy to form, bend and deep draw. After cold working and annealing, they can be easily formed into different shapes. For example, the 3004 alloy aluminum plate can be used as the tank body of the all-aluminum pop can, and the device for producing and storing liquid in the chemical industry

Strength and mechanical properties:

This series of aluminum plates has a moderate level of strength and is suitable for the construction industry, exhibiting good durability and a longer life than steel.

Easy to weld and process

The 3000 series is cheaper than the 5000 series aluminum plate, and the welding performance is also good. In some TV manufacturing industries, the 3104-O state plate is often used to make the LCD backplane of the TV, stamping the convex hull, adding electronic components, forming a dense oxide film after forming and oxidation It is not only resistant to corrosion and oxidation, but also has good insulation, which reduces the total weight of the finished product and ensures good heat dissipation performance.

Common Grades And Uses Of 3000 Series Aluminum Plates

3003 Aluminum Sheet

The 3003 series aluminum sheet plate is the signature product of the 3000 aluminum-manganese alloy series.

5000 Series Anti-Rust Aluminum Vs 3000 Series Anti-Rust Aluminum Plate

Aluminum-manganese alloys and aluminum-magnesium alloys are collectively referred to as anti-rust aluminum sheets (respectively representing 3-series aluminum alloys and 5-series aluminum alloys), because the alloy composition between them can improve their corrosion resistance. Due to the role of manganese, aluminum-manganese alloys have higher corrosion resistance and strength than pure aluminum, and have good weldability and plasticity, but poor processability. Due to the action of magnesium, the density of Al-Mg alloy is lower than that of pure aluminum, its strength is higher than that of aluminum-manganese alloy, and it has good corrosion resistance. Aluminum manganese alloy is composed of 3003 aluminum sheet plate, 3004 aluminum sheet plate and 3105 aluminum sheet plate. The first type is widely used, the second type is usually used in tanks, and the latter type is used where high conductivity is required, such as wires. According to the content of magnesium alloy, there are 5052 aluminum sheet, 5754 aluminum sheet, 5083 aluminum sheet, 5086 aluminum sheet, etc., which can be used in industries with high corrosion resistance and strength requirements such as ship hulls and containers. Has good corrosion resistance.
