3003 Aluminum vs. 6001 Aluminum Tread Plate

With both aluminum grades offering light-weight slip resistance and weldability, there are several differences that can help you determine which tread plate is best suited for your application needs.

3003 Aluminum Tread Brite Plate

  • Weaker than 6001 aluminum tread
  • Not heat-treatable
  • Can be spun, welded, or brazed
  • 20% stronger than commercially pure aluminum (1100 grade)
  • Corrosion resistant and highly workable
  • Popular general use alloy

6001 Aluminum Tread Plate

  • Strong, with a high strength to weight ratio
  • A popular, versatile alloy for structural purposes
  • Heat-treatable
  • Excellent machinability
  • Can be welded or brazed
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Not as pliable as other aluminum grades
In addition to our 3003 and 6001 aluminum tread plates, we also offer steel tread plates in a variety of in-stock sizes and custom cut-to-size options.
