What is 3014 H19 aluminum?

3104 H19 aluminum is an aluminum product when 3104 aluminum alloy is tempered to the state of H19, which increases the strength of the aluminum alloy by tempering.

The “H19” in the name refers to the tempering of aluminum, which is a heat treatment process that alters the specific mechanical and physical properties of the metal.

3104 H19 aluminum is usually used as the material for producing aluminum can body.

3104 aluminum is often delivered as aluminum coil, but some customers also choose aluminum sheets or slit into aluminum strips.

What is aluminum can body?

Aluminum can body are cylindrical containers made of aluminum that are used to hold various contents such as beverages and food products.

Aluminum can body are formed into cylinders by a process in which aluminum sheets are deep drawn. The deep drawing process involves stretching the aluminum sheet on a press and die to form the shape of the can.

3104 H19 Aluminium for Can Body

Due to the suitable strength, excellent deep-drawing properties and ductility of 3104 H19 aluminum coil, can bodies produced from 3104 aluminum alloy can be stretched thinner, thus greatly reducing the consumption of aluminum can material and reducing costs.


The products are applied to the pop can type packaging field, mainly used for producing pop cans and bottle cans containing soft drinks, tea drinks, functional drinks, protein drinks and beer.

Physical properties of 3104 H19 aluminum


The density of 3104 H19 aluminum is 2.72 g/cc, which translates to 0.0983 lb/in³ in inches.
