The 3003 aluminum perforated sheet with staggered perforations has an H14 temper and an unpolished (mill) surface. The 3003 aluminum alloy provides good strength and corrosion resistance, and is lighter weight than steel, copper, and brass. The sheet has an H14 temper, meaning it has been strain hardened to a 1/2 hard temper. The perforations are staggered in parallel diagonal rows.
Perforated metal sheets are created by punching a series of holes in a solid material. The holes are typically round, square, or slotted, but other patterns include hexagonal, Grecian, and cane. Holes are staggered (in parallel diagonal rows) or straight (in parallel vertical and horizontal rows). A sheet’s perforation size, center spacing, and percent open area (ratio of open space to total space in a given area of expanded metal) will all affect the particle size and the amount of light, sound, air, and liquid that can pass through.

Using this to make a false bottom in my Coleman 70-Quart Xtreme Cooler/converted Mash Tun. I have a mesh screen in it now and will leave it, but hope that this helps to alleviate clogging & stuck mashes. Will post update and the results when I can test it.
I purchased a 24" x 24" sheet of .125" thickness with .25" holes (part # B000H9QG8Y) to use for the plenum grill of a large tabletop spray booth. It arrived in perfect condition and exactly as described. Dimensions were accurate: 24 x 24 on the nose. Looks exactly like the listing photo except there's no beveling on the edges of the holes (though that may only be an optical illusion in the photo).
Easy to cut with a jigsaw and looks great as vent covers for a battery box on an electric bicycle. Bends easily, but is thick enough to hold is shape under moderate pressure. In my case, a 2.5 inch wide x 8 inch tall strip of this material is used to hold all the excess wiring into the front of a battery box. There a lot of stiff wires that want to spill out, but the aluminum holds it shape despite being attached only at the top and bottom edges.
