How to distinguish 3003 aluminium sheet and 1060 aluminium sheet

Among the many types of aluminum plates, 3003 aluminum plates and 1060 aluminum plates are the two more common ones. But for people who don’t understand aluminum plates, it is somewhat difficult to identify the two aluminum plates. This article will elaborate, analyze and introduce the 3003 aluminum plate and 1060 aluminum plate from the following six aspects to help everyone better identify the two aluminum plates.

1. Material composition

There are significant differences in material composition between 3003 aluminium sheet and 1060 aluminium sheet. The main components of 3003 aluminium sheet are aluminium, manganese and a small amount of copper, while the main component of 1060 aluminium sheet is pure aluminium. Therefore, by detecting the material composition of the aluminium sheet, the two aluminium sheets can be easily distinguished.

2. Surface effect

The surface effects of 3003 aluminium sheet and 1060 aluminium sheet are also different. The oxide film on the surface of the 3003 aluminium sheet is thicker and gray in color, while the oxide film on the surface of the 1060 aluminium sheet is thinner and white in color. This is a significant difference in the surface effects of the two aluminium sheets.

3. Appearance quality

In terms of appearance quality, the details of 3003 aluminium sheets and 1060 aluminium sheets are also different. The surface of 3003 aluminium sheet is relatively smooth, while the surface of 1060 aluminium sheet may have obvious oxidation spots. In addition, the edges of the two aluminium sheets are also different. The edges of the 3003 aluminium sheet are smoother, while the surface of the 1060 aluminium sheet may have some hammer damage.

4. Strength characteristics

3003 aluminium sheet and 1060 aluminium sheet also have different strength characteristics. The strength of 3003 aluminium sheet is relatively high, while the strength of 1060 aluminium sheet is relatively low. Therefore, by testing the strength characteristics of the aluminium sheet, the two aluminium sheets can also be easily distinguished.

5. Processing performance

For aluminium sheets that need to be processed, their processing performance is also a factor that cannot be ignored. 3003 aluminium sheet has good processing performance and can easily perform processing operations such as bending and cutting. The processing performance of 1060 aluminium sheet is relatively poor and requires more careful processing operations.

6. Price

The last factor that differentiates 3003 aluminium sheet from 1060 aluminium sheet is price. The price of 3003 aluminium sheet is relatively high because of its good strength and processing performance. The price of 1060 aluminium sheet is relatively low because of its higher purity, but poor strength and processing performance.

By comparing the above six aspects, we can easily distinguish between 3003 aluminium sheet and 1060 aluminium sheet. Different aluminium sheet materials are suitable for different occasions and uses. Choosing the aluminium sheet that suits you can improve work efficiency and quality. I hope this article can provide some help to everyone when choosing aluminium sheets.
