3105 vs 5052

3105-H14 aluminum is 3105 aluminum in the H14 temper. To achieve this temper, the metal is strain hardened to a strength that is roughly halfway between annealed (O) and full-hard (H18). The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare 3105-H14 aluminum to: 3000-series alloys (top), all aluminum alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it’s 50% of the highest, and so on.

the 5052 aluminum alloy is used to make beverage closure without internal pressure. The raw material is 5052 H19 aluminum sheet, the material is first oxidized to improve the coating adhesion and corrosion resistance. After the two sides are painted, the can lid is formed. So 5052 aluminum is another material for processing closures. 5052 aluminum sheet has good oxidation coloring effect, excellent metal texture and hardness, wear resistance and corrosion resistance, long service life, and is widely used in high-end mobile phone casings, high-end air-conditioning casings and other fields with high requirements for oxidation and metal texture.

6061 aluminum sheet alloy is strong, easily machined, and weldable. Aluminum 6061 T6 alloys are doubled the strength of aluminum 6063 alloys. Aluminum 6061 has an ultimate tensile strength of at least 42,000 psi (290 MPa) and yield strength of at least 35,000 psi (241 MPa). In thicknesses of 0.250 inch (6.35 mm) or less, it has elongation of 8% or more; in thicker sections, it has elongation of 10%. T651 temper has similar mechanical properties. The famous Pioneer plaque was made of this particular alloy. Order 6061 Aluminum Sheets in 6061 Aluminum in small quantities and no minimums of all Aluminum 6061 at The Metal Store.
