3104 H48 aluminum coil for can end

Last Updated: 2023-09-12

3104 H48 aluminum coil is commonly used to produce aluminum can end for products such as beverage cans, beer cans, ropp bottle, and other can end.

aluminum can end

3104 H48 is a product when 3104 aluminum is tempered to H48 state. After tempering, the strength of 3104 H48 aluminum is higher than that of  3104 H19 aluminum (can body material). It has the same metal composition as the 3104 alloy. As shown in the following table.

Alloy Manganese
Residuals Aluminum
3104 0.8-1.4 0.8-1.3 ≤0.8 ≤0.6 0.05~0.25 ≤0.25 ≤0.1 ≤0.05 ≤0.05 ≤0.15 95.1-98.4

3104 aluminum is usually delivered in big roll in packages of aluminum coil, or it can be slit into aluminum strip on request and delivered in the desired width.

Properties of 3104 H48 aluminum coil

Physical Properties

The physical properties of 3104 H48 aluminum include light weight, high reflectivity, good thermal conductivity and good electrical conductivity.

Mechanical Properties

It is strong, malleable and stretchable. It is suitable for deep drawing processes, stretching and forming without cracking or tearing.

Corrosion resistance

3104 H48 aluminum also has good corrosion resistance and can be applied to the packaging of water or other corrosive objects. It can also be coated with a protective layer, such as lacquer or paint, to further improve its corrosion resistance.

Applications for 3104 H48 aluminum coil

Beverage cans

3104 H48 aluminum coil is commonly used in the production of beverage can end. The higher strength allows it to withstand the pressure of carbonated beverages.

Food packaging

It is also used in the production of food packaging, such as aluminum trays. This is because of its light weight, high strength and corrosion resistance.

Other products

It is also used in the production of other products, such as cosmetic container lids and electronics housings.

Advantages of 3104 H48 aluminum

3104 H48 aluminum coil has the advantages of light weight, high strength, formability, and recyclability.

Light weight

The light weight of 3104 H48 makes it suitable as a raw material for weight-critical products such as beverage cans and automotive parts.


3104 H48 aluminum coil is also strong enough to be used in applications where pressure is required.


It is ductile and can be molded into a variety of shapes without cracking or tearing.


Aluminum can be recycled and is a recyclable resource. It is collected and re-melted in electric furnaces for reuse, reducing waste and conserving natural resources.

3104 H48 is not the only material suitable for can end, the following alloys are also suitable for can end.
