5052 aluminum sheet strength


3003 Aluminum is the most widely used Aluminum alloy. Manganese has been added to the commercially pure aluminum to increase its strength. It has good weldability, workability and corrosion resistance, but it cannot be heat treated. 5052 Aluminum Sheet ***PLEASE CALL FOR PRICING AND SHEET AVAILABILITY*** Product Description: 5052 Aluminum Alloy is a medium strength alloy containing Magnesium as its major alloying element. 5052 Aluminum alloy has good workability, a high fatigue strength and is very good for welding. Mill finish aluminum 5052 is a higher strength alloy than the 1100 or 3003 series. It offers excellent corrosion resistance and its major alloying element is magnesium. Magnesium allows for a much lower melting point without the brittleness. Aluminum 5052 is a non-heat treatable aluminum alloy. Aluminum is created by mining bauxite ore. 5052 aluminum coil and aluminum sheet have good workability, high fatigue strength and good weldability. It has very good corrosion resistance, especially in marine environments. 5052 aluminum can be anodized to improve the corrosion resistance of the material in corrosive environments. 5052-F aluminum is 5052 aluminum in the as-fabricated (no temper or treatment) condition. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare 5052-F aluminum to: 5000-series alloys (top), all aluminum alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. Typical Applications. 5052 is widely used for cooking utensils, food processing equipment, storage tanks, truck and trailer components, mail boxes, aircraft components, electronic chassis, boat hulls, deck houses, hatch covers, pressure vessels, ladders, railings, frames, drip pans, tool boxes, truck bumpers, inner and outer body panels and components in truck and auto industries, kitchen ...
