3003 aluminum is one of the purer aluminum alloy types used commercially. It retains the workability and excellent corrosion resistance of 1000 series alloys but with manganese as the primary element, 3003 is 20% stronger. Our aluminum alloy 3003 sheets can be machined and welded to create products for a wide range of heavy-duty applications from chemical storage tanks to building wall panels.
Inquivix Technologies aluminum sheets can be custom-made to your desired specifications and unique project requirements. We can deliver anywhere in the world and our products are available at competitive prices. Apart from aluminum sheet products, we also have a portfolio that contains aluminum plate, foil, and coil products as well as new scrap.

3003 is an alloy that retains many of the properties of commercially pure aluminum such as corrosion resistance and workability while being moderately strong through the presence of its main alloying element manganese. It cannot be heat treated but can be hardened through cold working. Inquivix Technologies supplies 3003 as aluminum sheet, plate, coil, and foil products.
Aluminum alloy 3003 sheets can be used for a variety of industrial applications such as chemical storage tanks, pressure vessels, electric vehicle battery enclosures, automobile heat shields, and decorative wall panels in building exteriors.
