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.
