1060 and 3003 aluminum coil properties and prices

February 7, 2020

Aluminum coil prices have a lot to do with the alloy and properties of a coil. Take 1060 and 3003 for example.

1060 3003 aluminum coil

1060 aluminium, containing 99.6% aluminum metal, is a type of industrial pure aluminum. It displays silver color on the surface. Its density drops with rise of purity or temperature of the coil. Owing to singular production process and mature manufacturing technology, it costs less than top-class aluminum alloys. This type of coil shows good tensile strength and elongation percentage, meeting requirement of common processing steps like punching and stretching. Besides, 1060 aluminum coil displays strong hardness, excellent machinability, high heat and electrical conductivity, good plasticity, satisfying welding property and extraordinary corrosion resistance. It withstands all kinds of processing pressure and shape changes like bending and extending, but it can’t be hot treated which is suitable only for even stronger aluminum alloys like 3003. As a result, aluminum coil price 1060 is cheaper than that of 3003.

3003 is a perfect representative of 3003 series of aluminium alloy that contains manganese, the corrosion resistance of which proves to be stronger than 1060. So does its hardness. It is a widely used rust-proof aluminum, which cannot be strengthened by heat treatment. Therefore, cold working method is used to improve its mechanical properties. It has high plasticity in the annealed state, good plasticity in semi-cold hardening, and low plasticity in cold hardening. 3003 aluminum coil is used for cell phone battery shells, bottle ropp caps for wine, enclosure for cosmetics and so on. Aluminum coil price 3003 ranges between $2200 to $2600 per metric ton.
