3003 grade aluminum price

May 6, 2020

3003 grade aluminum covers 3003 aluminium sheet plate, 3003 aluminum coil, 3003 aluminum strip and 3003 aluminium foil. Each can further be divided based on thickness, width, temper, surface treatment and application, and the price varies a lot as well.

3003 aluminium can be made into the biggest thickness in sheet and plate type. In China people tend to refer to thin flat pieces by “sheet” while thick ones by “plate”. The thickness range for both is between 0.1mm and 500mm. Most buyers, however, need within 50mm, for really thick plates are used far less frequently. As a matter of fact, most 3003 aluminium grade products, whatever type they are, are less than 10mm thick, which is sufficient for its regular applications in roofing, wall cladding, tank bodies, battery shells and so on. In foil type, 3003 alloy can be as thin as 0.015mm, applied in aluminium honeycomb panels, food containers, electronic products etc. 3003 aluminum coil price is similar to that of 3003 plate, and 3003 foil is more expensive, for its production entails more rolling steps until it gets thin enough.

The main difference between 3003 aluminum strip and coil is the width of the aluminium. A strip is much narrower, and it can be only 10mm wide or even narrower, but mostly below 100mm. Or else it can not be called as an aluminium strip, but an aluminium coil that is from 100mm to 2650mm wide. Thickness of the two might overlap with each other. The development of aluminum strip is to reduce steps in further process.

Tempers of 3003 grade aluminum alloy cover F, O, H12, H14, H16, H18, H19, H22, H24, H26, H28, H111, H112 and H114. Aluminium 3003 price has little to do with states, except that F states cost more than other states.

Whatever type, thickness, width or temper a 3003 aluminium product is of, its price is greatly influenced by surface treatment methods. Mill finish products are the cheapest, color coated (PE, PVDF, sarin) ones more expensive and anodized the most expensive.
