3000 series of alloys are that are alloyed with manganese. They have higher strength than pure aluminum while maintaining good formability and corrosion resistance. These alloys are not heat treatable and are suitable for anodizing and welding. Alloy 3003 is the most widely used of all the aluminum alloys.
