What is 5052 alloy aluminum coil?

5052 alloy aluminum coil belongs to 5xxx series aluminum coil. 5052 aluminum coil have good workability, high fatigue strength and good weldability. It has very good corrosion resistance, especially in marine environments.  5052 aluminum coil can be anodized to improve the corrosion resistance of the material in corrosive environments.5052 aluminum coil is stronger than 1100 and 3003 and it is an excellent candidate for most processing techniques.

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 is an AI Mg alloy with a wide range of applications. Especially in the construction industry, it is the most promising alloy. Good corrosion resistance, excellent weldability, good cold workability and medium strength. The main alloy element of 5052 is magnesium, which has good formability, corrosion resistance, weldability and medium strength. It is used to manufacture aircraft fuel tank, oil pipe, sheet metal parts of traffic vehicles and ships, instruments, street lamp supports and rivets, hardware products, electrical enclosures, etc.

Al Mn alloy is the most widely used antirust aluminum. This alloy has high strength, especially fatigue strength: high plasticity and corrosion resistance, can not be strengthened by heat treatment, good plasticity during semi cold work hardening, low plasticity during cold work hardening, good corrosion resistance, good weldability, poor machinability and polishing. Application: it is mainly used for low load parts requiring high plasticity and good weldability, working in liquid or gas medium, such as oil tank, gasoline or lubricating oil conduit, various liquid containers and other low load parts made by deep drawing: wire rod is used as rivet.

Aluminum Coil 5052 H32 contains nominally 2.5% magnesium,0.25% chromium and has good workability, medium static strength, high fatigue strength, good weldability, and very good corrosion resistance, especially in marine atmospheres. It also has the low density and excellent thermal conductivity similar to other aluminum alloys. Aluminum coil 5052 can be hardened by cold work and is not heat treatable to higher strength. Since the alloy spontaneously ages at room temperature immediately after cold work, all flat rolled mill products are supplied with stable properties using a stabilization treatment.
