What is 5052 aluminum sheet/plate?

5052 alloy metal aluminum sheet plate belongs to 5000 series aluminum sheet, which is highly resistant to corrosion. It belongs It is an alloy that contains 0.25 percent chromium and 2.5 percent magnesium, and it belongs to 5 series. It’s widely used because of its formability and durability. It has high fatigue and medium static strength. It can be used in marine environments without the worry of corrosion.

This metal also has excellent thermal conductivity and low density, which is commonly found with other aluminum alloys. Its fatigue properties and endurance limit are excellent. The endurance limit is 125 MPa in an H34 temper and 115 MPa in an H32 temper.

5052 aluminum alloy in addition to a small amount of manganese solid solution, most of the formation of MnAl6. 5052 aluminum plate in the role of chromium and manganese similar to improve stress corrosion cracking ability, improve the base metal and weld strength, reduce the tendency of welding cracks, but its content generally does not exceed 0.35%.

Aluminium alloy 5052 in H32 temper has very good corrosion resistance to seawater and marine and industrial atmosphere. It also has very good weldability and good cold formability. It is a medium to high strength alloy with a strength slightly higher than 5251 and a medium to high fatigue strength.

5052 aluminum flat sheet is alloyed with 2.5% magnesium. The tensile strength range is 31 to 44 KSI. 5052 has excellent workability, weldability and corrosion resisitance.5052 Aluminum sheet Used for aircraft fuel tanks, storm shutters, refrigerator liners and panels.

5052 aluminium plate of Huawei is certificated to ASTM B209 and it can be cut to size at the customer’s need. The main content is Mg, which improves the strength of 5052 aluminium plate. Products with different thicknesses have different tensile and yield strengths, as well as elongation, all of which live to international standards. 5052 aluminium plate is stronger than 1100 and 3003 and it is an excellent candidate for most processing techniques.

Features of 5052 alloy aluminum sheet

  • 5252 aluminum sheet has good oxidation and coloring effect and has better metal texture and metal hardness.
  • 5252 aluminum sheet is Al-Mg series rust-proof aluminum alloy, which cannot be strengthened by heat treatment.
  • The chemical composition of 5252 alloys is similar to that of 5A02 alloy, and its properties are basically the same as 5A02. The alloy has higher plasticity and lower strength.
  • Although the 5052 aluminum sheet has medium strength, it has excellent corrosion resistance and is easy to manufacture.
