Buy Alloy 5083 Aluminum Plate Sheet Information

Alloy 5083 aluminum plate sheet with magnesium and traces of manganese and chromium. It is highly resistant to attack by seawater and industrial chemicals. Alloy 5083 retains exceptional strength after welding. It has the highest strength of the non-heat treatable alloys, but is not recommended for use in temperatures in excess of 65 degrees.

Alloy 5083 aluminum plate sheet have higher strength than 5052 plate and has exceptional thermal conductivity. In the tempered condition, it retains good formability due to excellent ductility. It is highly suitable for welding and can be hardened by cold work. Because Alloy 5083 exhibits excellent resistance to general corrosion, it is used in marine applications. Since Alloy 5083 is capable of withstanding extremely low temperatures without brittleness or loss of properties, it is especially suited to the cryogenic market.

Alloy 5083 aluminum plate sheet is a non-heat-treatable 4½% magnesium, 0.15% chromium, 0.7% manganese alloy commonly available in flat rolled plate from a range of producing mills. Like all the 5000-series high magnesium alloys 5083 achieves a high strength by cold working,enabling a series of “H” tempers; 5083 is the

highest strength of any of these alloys.

Alloy 5083 aluminum plate sheet is best known as a plate for ship building. 5083 is an alloy used for high strength welded applications, with excellent marine environment corrosion resistance. It has a superior “skin finish” developed to prevent skin lamination, thus providing even better resistance to inter-granular corrosion than alloy 5083 H321. It has higher Tensile and Yield strengths than Alloy 5086 but less than 5456.
