Surface color

Since the 3003 aluminum contains about 1.0-1.8% of manganese, the surface of the 3003 aluminum sheet will be grayish, especially under the outdoor sunlight. The 1060 aluminum belong to pure aluminum, which has a bright color.


With the same temper, the 3003 aluminum is much harder than the 1060 aluminum. If you have a hardness testing instrument, you can clearly find this point. The hardness of the 3003 aluminum plate is generally in the range of 30-35. But because the 1060 aluminum plate contains as much as 99.60% aluminum, the 1060 aluminum is about 10% softer than the 3003 aluminum.


It is a normal way to use spectrometer data to analyze 3003 and 1060 aluminum. This is a relatively fast and the most formal and stable analysis method among these several methods.

Typical applications

The 3003 aluminum plate is suitable for building exterior walls, automobile lining, bus bottom lining, product packaging,etc. The 1060 aluminum is more commonly used in such fields like pipe insulation, ceiling, lamp stamping, transformer winding,etc.
