Overview of 5083 Alloy Thin Aluminum Sheet

5083 alloy metal aluminum sheet plate belongs to Al-Mg-Si 5000 series aluminum sheet. Its main contents are Magnesium and Silicon except for Aluminium. Over 4.0% of Magnesium enables 5083 aluminium plates to have excellent resistance to correction, and easily to welded. By adding cooper, 5083 aluminum plate has 28% Electrical conductivity. 5083 aluminum plate also has good forming characteristics for either hot or cold working. But hardening is accomplished by means of cold working only. Besides, 5083 aluminium plate does have good strength but non-heat-treatable.

Alloy 5083 aluminium plates have higher strength than 5052 plates 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.

5083 aluminum sheet exhibits higher strength than 5052 sheet. it’s known for exceptional performance in extreme environments. 5083 is highly resistant to attack by both seawater and industrial chemical environments. Its greater corrosion resistance, especially against salt water corrosion, makes it an excellent material for marine and processing applications. 5083 aluminium sheet performs well in extremely cold environments without becoming brittle. It is easy to form, stamp and weld.

Alloy 5083 also retains exceptional strength after welding. It has the highest strength of the non-heat-treatable alloys but is not recommended for use in temperatures in excess of 65°C.
