3003 is one of the most commonly used aluminum manganese alloys used in the world today. Being a wrought alloy, 3003 aluminum is commonly rolled and extruded, but not manufactured through casting. While other aluminum alloys like 6061 can be heat treated to increase tensile strength, 3003 is not suitable for this. Instead, it can be cold-worked through mechanical distortion to improve its strength.
All Inquivix Technologies 3003 coils are made to the highest industrial standards. They are the cost-effective choice for a wide variety of sheet metal applications, pressure vessels, furniture components, refrigerator panels, vehicle radiators, as well as heating and cooling systems in buildings.

Other Aluminum Coil Alloys
3003 is an alloy of aluminum made by introducing primarily manganese, which increases its strength. 3003 is considered a general-purpose alloy that has a moderate level of strength but can be manufactured in various forms due to its bendability. Its strength can be improved by cold working through hammering and rolling. The alloy is also very weldable and resistant to corrosion.
Aluminum 3003 coils can be used in a variety of applications such as storage tanks, car radiators, cookware, as well as heating & cooling systems in buildings. Furthermore, the 3003 coils can be used for making roofing, siding, gutters, and downspouts.
