The 1050 aluminum alloy is formed from pure aluminum by added a small amount of copper element, and the 1050 aluminum plate has low strength, excellent formability, surface treatment property, weldability and corrosion resistance. Besides, the industrial pure aluminum has the characteristics of high plasticity, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity, but the strength is low, it can not be strengthened by heat treatment, the machinability is not good, and contact welding and gas welding are acceptable. The higher the purity, the lower the hardness of the aluminum plate, in the 1000 series pure aluminum alloys, 1050 aluminum has higher strength, it is almost the same as 1060 aluminum.
Aluminum sheet 3003 is used in many types of industrial applications, including: Food & chemical handling Fuel tanks Trailer siding Roofing
“What’s the difference between Aluminum Alloys 3003 and Aluminum 5052? If that also sounds like aluminum 5052 that is because both alloys obtain similar characteristics. However, the 5052 alloy has a higher strength and greater corrosion resistance (including to salt water). Its major alloying element is magnesium. Magnesium overcomes the corrosive effects of the iron present in the alloy. It also has better finishing characteristics than the 3003 alloy. These attributes make aluminum 5052 a great fit for food processing equipment and truck trailers as well as marine and aquatic features.”
