Properties and Applications of 5052 Aluminum Plate


5052 aluminum plate is an AL-Mg series alloy aluminum plate, which is the most widely used rust-resistant aluminum. This alloy has high strength, especially anti-fatigue strength, high plasticity and corrosion resistance, cannot be strengthened by heat treatment, has good plasticity during semi-cold work hardening, and low plasticity during cold work hardening. It has good corrosion resistance, good weldability, poor machinability, and can be polished.

The main features of 5052 aluminum plate are:

High plasticity and good processing performance; good weldability and corrosion resistance; medium strength; polishable and grindable. In conventional industry, the thickness of 5052 alloy aluminum plate is 0.5~3.0mm, and its commonly used thickness is 1.65mm and 2.0mm. It has good corrosion resistance: the oxide film is dense, the bonding is good, the surface hardness is high, and the wear resistance is good; it has good corrosion resistance and resistance to atmospheric corrosion. Excellent mechanical performance: moderate strength, good toughness; has certain anti-fatigue strength: plasticity is related to heat treatment process. It has high heat resistance and good oxidation resistance. Easy to extrude and shape. Can be cold stamping molding. Can be machined. Used for making rivets. Can be used for mold making. Applied to electrical enclosure. Widely used in hardware stamping parts. Applied to building and furniture decoration.
