Material type: Metal
5052 is an aluminium alloy, primarily alloyed with magnesium and chromium. Typical applications include marine, aircraft, architecture, general sheet metal work, heat exchangers, fuel lines and tanks, flooring panels, streetlights, appliances, rivets and wire.
The exceptional corrosion resistance of 5052 alloy against seawater and salt spray makes it a primary candidate for the failure-sensitive large marine structures, like tanks of liquefied natural gas tankers.
Cannot be strengthened by heat treatment. Low plasticity during cold work hardening and weldability.
Tough enough to hold up on fuel tanks, and adaptable enough to be used in utensils and fan blades.
