General description of 3004 aluminum alloy
What is 3004 aluminum alloy?
3004 aluminum alloy is same as 3003 aluminum,both of them are alloys in the wrought aluminium-manganese alloys family (3000 or 3xxx series).
3004 aluminium alloy is similar to the 3003 alloy, the main alloying addition is manganese, except for the addition of approximately 1% magnesium.
The alloy 3004 is commonly used in the production of beverage cans. It was developed to satisfy the need of thinner gauges in can-stock, and thereby to some extent replaced its predecessor 3003 aluminum alloy in the making of beverage cans.

Cans can be made thinner due to the addition of 1% magnesium, which contributes in solid solution strengthening.

Mechanical properties of 3004 aluminum
3004 aluminum alloy is a wrought alloy, mostly used for stamping or cold working, so excellent tensile strength, yield strength, fatigue strength and other properties are particularly important;
3004 aluminum has 15 tempering states, different tempering states correspond to different performances, the following are the corresponding performances in several typical tempering states;
|Temper||Ultimate Tensile Strength||Ultimate Yield Strength||Shear Strength||Fatigue Strength||%||Brinell|
|3004-O||180 MPa / 26,000 psi||69 MPa / 10,000 psi||110 MPa / 16,000 psi||97 MPa / 14,000 psi||20-25||45|

Difference between 3003 and 3004 aluminum
3004 aluminum alloy is very similar to 3003 aluminum, they both have excellent corrosion resistance, high strength-to-mass ratio, etc., but adding a small amount of magnesium to 3004 alloy aluminum improves the strength of the alloy.
