Aluminum 5052

Grade Summary: This is the highest strength alloy of the more common non-heat-treatable grades. Fatigue strength is higher than most aluminum alloys. Particularly good resistance to marine atmosphere and salt water corrosion. Excellent workability. It may be drawn or formed into intricate shapes and its slightly greater strength in the annealed condition minimizes tearing that  can occur in 1100 or 3003. Excellent finishing characteristics with bright, clear anodic coatings.

Typical Applications: Wide variety from aircraft components to home appliances, marine and transportation industry parts, heavy duty cooking utensils, and equipment for bulk processing food.

Available products: Flat Sheet and Plate
