Aluminum Tread Plate (or Checker Plate) is a smooth sheet with a regular diamond pattern or 3 bars or 5 bars pattern on one side. It is used for flooring, cladding, tool boxes, ramps or anything that requires an ultra-hard wearing property.
3003 aluminium tread plate and 5052 aluminum tread plate is very general use tread plate during all aluminum alloy. Tread plate also called checkered plate or chequred plate.
Diamond tread plate is one of aluminum checker plate, and it has bright or dull finish. Client from America is very interested in brigth finish diamond aluminum plate, so it is so called Brite plate or brite aluminum checker plate.
There are some equivalent name of 3003 aluminum,and they are A3003, 3003a, aa3003, 3003aa, al3003, al3003a, a 3003, aa 3003, jis a3003p, al3003 class, aw3003, en3003 grade
3003 aluminum diamond plate with the raised tread pattern to improve traction. This is very commonly used for tool boxes, wall panels, flooring, truck bed liners and trim, garage and workshop outfitting, step plates and any other application that needs the light weight and strength of 3003 aluminum with increased traction of the raised tread pattern.
5052 aluminum is popular because it is one of the most versatile aluminum alloys. It is strong enough for fuel tanks, but adaptable enough for utensils.
Aluminum 5052 has a smoother finish than 6061 Aluminum, although it is not heat-treatable. Aluminum 5052 has a higher fatigue strength and modulus of elasticity than Aluminum 6061, making it an excellent forming alloy. Aluminum sheet 5052 is used in many types of industrial applications, including: Fuel tanks
Comparing with alloy 3003, In general, 3003 is fairly soft and has good corrosion resistance, good drawing, good workability, moderate strength, and is weldable, while 5052 is stronger and has better corrosion resistance, good drawing, good formability, higher strength, and also is weldable.
When annealed, aluminium alloy 5052 is stronger than 1100 and 3003 alloys. It is one of the higher strength, non-heat-treatable alloys and has good workability. It also has very good corrosion resistance, especially to salt water
