5052 Aluminum Sheet

The 5052 aluminum sheet is an AL-Mg series aluminum alloy sheet. Magnesium is the main alloying element in the 5052 alloy aluminum sheet. It is the most widely used rust-proof aluminum. This alloy has high strength, especially anti-fatigue strength: plasticity and corrosion resistance. High performance, can not be strengthened by heat treatment, good plasticity in semi-cold work hardening, low plasticity in cold work hardening, good corrosion resistance, good weldability, poor machinability, and can be polished.

Scope of application

5052 aluminum sheet is mainly used for demanding high plasticity and good weldability. It is also commonly used in sheet metal parts of traffic vehicles and ships, instruments, street lamp supports and rivets, hardware products, electrical enclosures, etc. It is a typical antirust alloy material.
