5000 series aluminum sheet
5000 series aluminum is an aluminum-magnesium alloy, in which the magnesium element content is between 3% and 6%. The difference in magnesium content determines the performance difference between 5000 series aluminum sheet of different alloy grades. Then, as a quality aluminum sheet supplier will also make a detailed analysis of the use of 5000 series aluminum coils and related alloy classification.
Advantages of 5000 series aluminum sheet
5000 series aluminum sheet belongs to the more commonly used alloy aluminum sheet series, which has many advantages, mainly including the following points:
First, the 5000 series aluminum sheet is the most resistant to acid and alkali corrosion in the 1000-8000 aluminum sheet series, which makes the 5000 aluminum series sheet suitable for environments where most aluminum sheets cannot adapt, greatly expanding the scope of aluminum application.
Second, high plasticity and good processing performance. 5000 series aluminum alloy can be adapted to various processing methods such as bending, stamping and stretching.
Third, the 5000 series aluminum sheet has excellent thermal conductivity. Meanwhile, it is the best material for manufacturing equipment casings and heat sinks.
Fourth, the hardness of 5000 series aluminum sheet is higher among the 1-8 aluminum sheet series. It can be further processed to increase the strength. It is the main material for making high-end mobile phones and computer cases.

The other side 5000 series aluminum
Although the 5000 series aluminum sheet has many advantages, it also has some disadvantages. For example, 5000 aluminum alloy is a non-heat treatable reinforced aluminum alloy sheet. Due to the greater hardness of the 5 series aluminum, the wear resistance and cutting performance are not too obvious. These may increase the use cost of the aluminum 5000 series, but its market application and development will not be affected by these insignificant shortcomings.
5000 series aluminum sheet some uses
Under the same area, the weight of 5000 series aluminum sheet is lower than other series. It is also widely used in conventional industry. 5000 series aluminum is commonly used in ships, ships, vehicle materials, auto aluminum plate and aircraft sheet welded parts, pressure vessels that require strict fire protection, refrigeration devices, TV towers, drilling equipment, transportation equipment, conductive components, armored vehicles, etc.
5000 series aluminum alloy belongs to the more commonly used aluminum alloy series. Its main features are low density, high tensile strength and high elongation. Under the same area, the weight of 5000 series aluminum is lower than other series, so it is not only used in aviation and ships, but also widely used in conventional industries.
