Aluminium 5052

Aluminium Alloy 5052

Aluminium 5052 has excellent corrosion resistance power and atmosphere pressure sustainability. Aluminium 5052 is a medium to high strength alloy with a strength slightly higher than 5251 and a medium to high fatigue strength. Aluminium 5052 alloy is one of the higher strength, non-heat-treatable alloys, which contains magnesium as its major alloying element, with small amounts of chromium, silicon, iron, copper, manganese and zinc. When annealed, Aluminium 5052 is stronger than the readily available 1100 and 3003 alloys, and stronger than most other 5xxx series alloys. Aluminium 5052 cannot be heat treated, but can be hot and cold worked. At Mallinath Metal, we ensure the quality of Aluminium 5052 keeping in mind client requirement.
