Aluminium 5052 Bar, Sheet, Plate

Aluminum 5052 is one of the higher strength non-heat treatable alloys (Annealed it is stronger than 1100 and 3003). Alloy 5052 has excellent characteristics with a high fatigue strength it is used for structures which are subject to excessive vibrations. As 5052 also has excellent corrosion resistance, especially in marine atmospheres and is therefore commonly used in boats, marine components, fuel and oil tubing.

Aluminum 5052 is stocked by 120 North American distributors and produced by 46 large mills. Distributors will offer small quantity buys while mills will generally only sell large quantities, with delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks depending on size and form required This material is stocked primarily in Flat Rolled Products by 111 distributors but is also available to a lesser extent in Tubular Products, Wire Products, Structurals, and Scientific Forms.
