marine aluminum plate 5052 is the alloy most suited to forming fabrication, with good workability and higher strength than that of the 1100 or 3003 alloys that are commercially available.
5052 is not heat-treatable, but is stronger than most of the 5000 series of alloys. It has very good corrosion resistance, and can be easily welded. 5052 is not a good choice for extensive machining operations, as it has only a fair machinability rating
Glory’s marine aluminum plate 5052 and 6061 alloys are available in a range of esthetically pleasing mechanical and chemical finishes such as mirrored bright finish, smooth satin matte finish, and classic brushed finish. All are available in a variety of colors, and can be applied directly to the coil so a finishing step can be eliminated from the process. Environmental Aluminum is infinitely recyclable, and nearly 75% of all aluminum ever produced since 1888 is still in use today. Recycling aluminum uses 95% less energy and produces 95% less greenhouse gas emissions than making metal from new materials
