Why 5052 aluminum is cheaper than 6061 aluminum

2019-03-06

Both 5052 aluminum and 6061 aluminum alloys can undergo the anodizing process to increase corrosion resistance and enable dying (coloring). The anodic layer is non-conductive.But 6061-T6 aluminum sheet is the most commonly used aluminum alloys. The main alloy ingredients are magnesium and silicon.

Common uses for this alloy are in the manufacturing of fishing reels, truck frames, structural components, machine parts, aircraft and aerospace components, marine fittings, camera lenses, transport, valves, and couplings.

6061-T3 is not recommended for sheet metal work because it will crack on the outside radius once it passes its yield when being processed on a brake press, for example.When compared with 6061 aluminum,Aluminum 5052 alloy is one of the higher strength, non-heat-treatable alloys, which contains magnesium as its major alloying element, with small amounts of chromium, silicon, iron, copper, manganese and zinc. When annealed, alloy 5052 is stronger than the readily available 1100 and 3003 alloys, and stronger than most other 5xxx series alloys.

5052 aluminum alloy cannot be heat treated, but can be hot and cold worked.5052-H32 contains 2.5% magnesium. It is one of the highest strength alloys of the non-heat treatable grades. Common uses for this alloy include the manufacturing of electrical enclosures, marine parts, home appliances, food equipment, fuel tanks, storm shutters, refrigerators, aircraft tube, and fences.So 5052 aluminum is cheaper than 6061 aluminum,the resource is from professional aluminum manufacturer-Henan Huawei aluminum,we have great quality aluminum foil, circle, sheet, mirror and embossed sheet, coil and so on, so if you have any interested, feel free to contact。
