5052 Aluminum Sheet

Aluminum 5052 has magnesium and to a lesser extent chromium as its main alloying elements. This composition gives the alloy excellent resistance against salt water corrosion which makes it a valuable material that can be utilized in marine atmospheres and environments.  The strength, fatigue resistance, weldability, and plasticity of aluminum 5052 are highly valued by manufacturers, placing its sheet and plate products in great demand.

The 5052 aluminum sheets supplied by Inquivix Technologies are great for construction materials in building exteriors, petrochemical equipment, automotive parts, railroad cars, and boat construction. Our sheets are also available in a wide range of tempers with 5052 H32 aluminum being one of the most popular products. We can deliver cost-effective aluminum sheet products, all custom-made to your tensile strength, length, thickness, width, and temper specifications.

Material Properties of
5052 Aluminum Alloy

High Fatigue Strength and Medium Static Strength

Aluminum 5052 has magnesium as its primary alloying element, which makes these sheet products have moderate strength but excellent fatigue resistance. This makes it perfect for building structures that need to withstand vibrations. 5052 sheets are also durable, lightweight, and score high in terms of machinability.  This makes 5052 perfect for a wide variety of demanding industrial applications.

Very Good Corrosion Resistance

Aluminum 5052 has only a small quantity of copper in its composition, giving it excellent corrosion resistance. When combined with the strength and fatigue characteristics mentioned earlier, this makes 5052 an ideal choice for marine environments where materials need to be protected from seawater. Furthermore, our 5052 sheets are resistant to corrosion from gasoline, organic acids, inorganic salt solutions, and even food.

Can Be Hardened Through Cold Working

While aluminum 5052 is a non-heat treatable alloy, its mechanical properties like hardness can be improved through cold working methods like rolling. Inquivix Technologies provides many types of tempering to obtain the characteristics our customers desire, with 5052 H32 being one of the more popular tempers chosen due to its high bendability.

Exhibits Good Weldability and Excellent Workability

Aluminum 5052 exhibits impressively good workability which makes it ideal for forming processes. Its weldability is also high with a low tendency for welding cracks. This makes our aluminum 5052 sheets useful from boat construction to building exteriors.
