What Are Properties and Uses of A5052 Aluminum Sheet Material

A5052 material is a material with excellent mechanical properties. Its mechanical properties such as tensile strength, hardness, and elongation are excellent. 5052 aluminum sheet is commonly used in the temper of H32 as a thin aluminum sheet and H112 as a thick aluminum plate. Aluminum plates in these two states are widely used.

The tensile strength of 5052 aluminum plate is 170-350MPa, and the annealing temperature is 345 degrees Celsius. The mechanical properties will be different under different work hardening and heat treatment conditions. Compared with 1 series pure aluminum plate, the tensile strength of 5052 is 210-230, and the hardness is 100% higher than that of 1060 aluminum sheet. At the same time, the elongation is also increased by 12-20%. Due to the effect of alloy elements, the corrosion resistance of 5052 aluminum plates is more obvious.

All-aluminum cans, also known as two-piece cans, are composed of a can body and a can lid, which are manufactured on different production lines using different aluminum alloys. In terms of manufacturing easy-open lids, 5052 alloy is used more, accounting for about 60% of the total, and the thickness is mostly 0.22~0.26mm. 5052 aluminum is used for beverage lids and food lids without internal pressure.

Automotive aluminum sheets are mainly used in automobile exterior covering parts, such as engine hoods. Compared with steel parts, they can reduce weight by 50%. At the same time, aluminum alloy parts have good thermal conductivity, which can effectively ensure the heat dissipation of the engine and meet the needs of automobiles. It also plays an important role in the protection of pedestrians in collisions. Acura NSX cars use 5052 for interior panels and 6000 series for exterior panels.

Marine aluminum plates are immersed in water all year round and have high requirements for corrosion resistance. 5052 aluminum plates are Al-Mg alloys with excellent corrosion resistance and medium strength. They are suitable for the manufacture of economical aluminum alloy ships. In addition to being used in the hull, 5052 marine aluminum sheet can also be used in cable trays, ship sinks, cabin floors, etc. on ships.

The marine grade aluminum tread plate is often processed based on the 5052 aluminum sheet to meet ship and maritime purposes due to 5052 aluminum’s good corrosion resistance, high hardness, and good rust resistance.
