a5052B material often exists in the form of aluminum sheet, aluminum coil, and aluminum strip, with a thickness ranging from 8.0-300mm. Tensile strength: 200MPa+, yield strength: 120-140MPa, elongation rate 16%+. The welding characteristics of a5052B material are also very good. Normally, the welding electrode model: 5052B aluminum sheet can be welded with ER5356 electrode. After welding, the mechanical properties of 5052B aluminum sheet are still maintained without change.
The main features of a5052B material
A5052B material, the main alloying element is magnesium. The magnesium content is between 3-5%. Another name for it is aluminum-magnesium alloy.
It cannot be strengthened by heat treatment.
The density is small (the density of 5052B is 2.68). The weight of aluminum-magnesium alloy is lower than other series, provided that it is in the same area. The strength is higher than the 1, 3 series. It is a medium-to-high strength aluminum alloy with good fatigue and welding performance. High tensile strength and high elongation.
Good resistance to marine and atmospheric corrosion.
5052B aluminum sheet belongs to the hot-rolled aluminum sheet series, so it can be used for deep oxidation processing.
Application of a5052B material
5052B aluminum sheet has so many excellent properties, these characteristics make 5052B aluminum perform well in marine, electronic, chemical applications, decorative panel materials, as well as machinery, automobiles, ships and other related industries. 5052B aluminum has a wide range of uses, some of which are listed here include:
Food processing equipment
High-strength sheet metal parts
What is the difference between a5052B material and 6061 aluminum?
6061 aluminum is one of the most commonly used aluminum sheet grades on the market. The main alloying elements of 6061 aluminum are magnesium (1.0%) and silicon (0.6%). So 6061 aluminum has become a heat-treatable alloy, which is stronger than 5052B aluminum. It also has high stress and crack resistance, as well as good formability and weldability.
Due to its high strength, 6061 aluminum is used in structural and engineering applications. However, 5052B aluminum is easier to shape than 6061 aluminum.
What is the difference between a5052B material and 3003 aluminum material?
3003 aluminum is alloyed with 1.2% manganese. Although it is more ductile and formable than 5052B aluminum, it is not as strong as aluminum 5052B (tensile strength 17 to 30 KSI and 31 to 41 KSI).
Due to the presence of copper, 3003 aluminum has high corrosion resistance. This grade also has excellent workability and weldability. Common applications for 3003 aluminum include sheet metal processing, commercial signs and refrigerator linings. However, if you have a smaller budget and just need less strength and corrosion resistance for your end use, aluminum 3003 may be a better choice. You can send inquiry to henan Mingtai Aluminium
