Aluminum plates are divided into 8 series according to different alloy elements. Except for the 1 series pure aluminum plates, the other 7 series are alloy aluminum plates. Among different alloy aluminum sheets, the 5-series aluminum-magnesium alloy has excellent performance and is regarded as the most promising aluminum sheet series in the industry. Among the 5 series aluminum plates, the most representative aluminum plate grades are 5052, 5083 and 5754. Today we will talk to you about the differences between these three aluminum plates.
5052 aluminum plate
5052 aluminum plate is the most representative 5-series alloy aluminum plate, which is the most widely used. 5052 aluminum plate has medium strength, good formability, corrosion resistance and weldability, and high fatigue resistance. It is a commonly used high-grade rust-proof aluminum. 5052 alloy aluminum plate is widely used in the automobile industry, generally used in automobile fuel tanks, fuel pipes, conduits, low-load parts, etc., and can also be used in the production of various liquid containers.
5083 aluminum plate
The 5083 aluminum plate has a high magnesium content, belongs to a high magnesium alloy, cannot be strengthened by heat treatment, has good strength and corrosion resistance, good machinability, can be welded, and can be anodized. 5083 alloy aluminum plate can be used in shipbuilding, as well as automobiles, aircraft welding parts, subway light rails, pressure vessels requiring strict fire protection (such as liquid tankers, refrigerated trucks, refrigerated containers), refrigeration units, TV towers, drilling equipment, transportation equipment, missiles parts, armor, etc.
5754 aluminum plate
The magnesium content of 5754 aluminum plate is higher than 5052 and lower than 5083. It has high fatigue resistance, good corrosion resistance and good weldability. It is also a commonly used alloy aluminum plate in automobile manufacturing. It can also be used in the manufacture of pressure vessels, ships and transportation tanks.
