5052 Aluminum Alloy Plate


5052 aluminum alloy belongs to the Al-Mg series alloy and has a wide range of applications, especially in the construction industry, which is inseparable from this alloy. It is the most promising alloy. Good corrosion resistance, excellent weldability, good cold workability, and medium strength. The main alloying element of 5052 aluminum alloy is magnesium, which has good forming performance, corrosion resistance, weldability, and medium strength. It is used to manufacture aircraft fuel tanks, oil pipes, and sheet metal parts for transportation vehicles and ships, meters, street lamp brackets, and Rivets, hardware products, electrical appliances, etc.


5052 aluminum alloy is the most widely used anti-rust aluminum. This alloy has high strength, especially fatigue resistance: high plasticity and corrosion resistance, cannot be strengthened by heat treatment, and the plasticity is good when hardened by cold work. When hardened, the plasticity is low, the corrosion resistance is good, the weldability is good, the machinability is poor, and it can be polished. Uses are mainly used for low-load parts that require high plasticity and good weldability, working in liquid or gaseous media, such as fuel tanks, gasoline or lubricating oil pipes, various liquid containers and other small-load parts made by deep drawing: Wire is used to make rivets.
