Aluminum 5052 is often referred to a “Anodize Quality Aluminum”,as it has excellent finishing qualities and anodized coating are bright and clear.The major alloying element in 5052 is magnesium in sufficient quantities to cause substanical lowering of the melting point without producing brittleness. When maganese is used as the major alloyign element, or in combination with manganes, the result is a moderate to high strength non-heat treatable aluminum alloy.5052 is far stronger than the 1100 or 3000 series aluminums, yet forms with reasonable bend radii. Weldability is very good and 5052 has good resistance to corrosion, especially in salt-water/marine atmospheres.
Aluminum 5052 plate exhibits higher corrosion resistance than other aluminum alloys and higher strength than 3003 aluminum plate. In addition, it exhibits good salt water resistance, making it a popular material for marine applications.5052 aluminum is easy to form, stamp,weld and finish. It has fair machinability with proper setup.5052 aluminum plate is used for products that require high strength in corrosive environments, including fuel tanks, truck and trailer side panels, small boat hulls, truck cabs, bumpers storage tanks and pressure vessels.
Aluminum 5052 is a non-heat treatable alloy with excellent finishing qualities. Aluminum 5052 offers better corrosion resistance than most aluminum alloys, especially to salt water and marine atmospheres.This alloy can be readily welded using most common techniques and is in fact offers some of the best welding characteristics of all aluminum alloys.
To be sold as Aluminum 5052, an alloy must have the following unique chemical composition:
All the Aluminum 5052 sold by Continental Steel meets or exceeds a number of leading industry specifications including those from AMS, ASTM, MIL, and QQ.
