3003 aluminum vs 5052

2019-01-31

3003 aluminum sheet is a very cost effective grade, as it combines substantial strength and corrosion resistance, with an attractive finish. It is used for stamped and formed parts and can be finished with mechanical and organic finishes.

Aluminum sheet 5052 is used in many types of industrial applications, including: Refrigerator liners Fuel tanks Storm shutters Panels

5052 aluminum sheet is often referred to as "Anodize Quality Aluminum", as it has excellent finishing qualities and anodized coatings are bright and clear. The major alloying element in 5052 is magnesium in sufficient quantities to cause substantial lowering of the melting point without producing brittleness. When magnesium is used as the major alloying element, or in combination with manganese, the result is a moderate to high strength non-heat treatable aluminum alloy. 5052 is far stronger than the 1100 or 3000 series aluminums, yet forms with reasonable bend radii. Weldability is very good and 5052 has good resistance to corrosion, especially in salt-water / marine atmospheres.

6061 T6 Aluminum Sheet is an aluminum sheet product that is very versatile and has a wide range of applications. 6061 Aluminum sheet is made from one of the most widely used heat treatable aluminum alloys. This sheet has excellent corrosion resistance, good workability and good machinability. 6061 sheet applications include a wide variety of products from medical assemblies, aircraft construction to structural components. 6061 t6 aluminum sheet has a high strength to weight ratio making it ideal for any application where parts need to be light.
