Aluminium 5083 alloy for boat has been used in the ship building industry for nearly 100 years. With the rapid development of the shipbuilding industry at home and abroad, the lightweight of ships like sailboat has been paid more and more attention.
Due to the low density, ships constructed from marine grade aluminum are 15-20% lighter than ships constructed from steel or other synthetic materials, which is a more obviously advantage in sail boat construction. The high toughness, corrosion resistance, weldability, strength and rigidity of aluminium 5083 5086 alloy provide a good choice for building weight-critical ship types.
Because of the lower processing costs, it is more economical to use aluminum to make ships.The aluminium 5083 alloy can be used as sheet plate material, and can also be subjected to extrusion molding and casting processing. Together with the outstanding physical properties of the aluminum alloy, it is very economical to manufacture the sail boat from aluminium 5083 alloy.
From the perspective of the ship designer, ships made of marine aluminium alloy can achieve higher speeds and longer service life. These advantages of marine aluminium alloys like 5083, 5086, 6061 make them develop rapidly in the application of ships. The shipbuilding industry is also provide a broad application market for aluminium 5083 alloy for boat.
