5005 h34 aluminum sheet commonly used in the manufacture of appliances, small boats, gas lines, refrigerator panels, and utensils. 5005 is also used in architectural components, and as an electrical conductor. Especially useful where excessive finishing costs are encountered in the use of 3003 alloys due to surface roughness upon drawing.
5005 Aluminum sheet is often used when the material will be anodized and deployed in an architectural application like flashings, sills, curtain walls etc. Architects often specify 5005 alloy for anodized aluminum architectural metalwork.
5005 aluminum sheet machinability is generally poor, especially in the soft temper conditions. However it can be machined, but with more difficulty than many of the aluminum alloys. Machining in the harder tempers, such as H34, H38, is better than in the soft temper condition.
