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.
5083 aluminum sheet application: Due to its strength and temperature characteristics, 5083 aluminum plate is used in: pressure vessels truck, marine, underwater vehicles cryogenic equipment””
Aluminum 5083 is a non-heat treatable alloy known for its resistance to extreme environments, including seawater corrosion and industrial chemicals. While featuring limited machinability due to its exceptional strength, AL 5083 is the material of choice for marine and aquatic applications, and is typically used in shipbuilding. Other uses for this alloy include transportation applications such as rail, truck, and vehicle bodies, as well as pressure vessels and food processors.
