5083-H32 aluminum is 5083 aluminum in the H32 temper. To achieve this temper, the metal is strain hardened, and then stabilized, to a strength that is roughly a quarter of the way between annealed (O) and full-hard (H38). The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare 5083-H32 aluminum to: 5000-series alloys (top), all aluminum alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it’s 50% of the highest, and so on.
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””
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.
