5083 aluminum sheet is a high strength material, exhibiting higher strength than 5052 sheet.5083 H116 is an alloy used for high strength welded applications, with excellent marine environment corrosion resistance. It has a superior “skin finish” developed to prevent skin lamination, thus providing even better resistance to inter-granular corrosion than alloy 5083 H321. It has higher Tensile and Yield strengths than Alloy 5086 but less than 5456. Aluminium 5083 is a strong magnesium-manganese-chromium-aluminium alloy. It can be hardened by cold work, but is not heat treatable to higher strength. It has good ductility for the strength level, better than most other 5000 series alloys. Aluminium alloy 5083 contains 5.2% magnesium, 0.1% manganese and 0.1% chromium. In the tempered condition, it is strong, and retains good formability due to excellent ductility. It has the low density and excellent thermal conductivity common to all aluminium alloys. Alloy 5083 is best known as a plate for ship building.The alloy is also produced as extruded seamless tube and other extrusions and as forgings.
6061 aluminum sheet is a popular material due to its strength, low weight, formability and resistance to moisture, heat and corrosion. 6061 aluminum sheet has an ultimate tensile strength of at least 42,000 psi and yield strength of at least 35,000 psi making it ideal for a wide range of applications. 6061 aluminum is the most widely used aluminum grade.
Alloy 5083 aluminum sheet have higher strength than 5052 plate and has exceptional thermal conductivity. In the tempered condition, it retains good formability due to excellent ductility. It is highly suitable for welding and can be hardened by cold work. Because Alloy 5083 exhibits excellent resistance to general corrosion, it is used in marine applications. Since Alloy 5083 is capable of withstanding extremely low temperatures without brittleness or loss of properties, it is especially suited to the cryogenic market.
