The Short Introduction of 5052 Aluminum Alloy

The 5052 aluminum alloy belongs to the Al-Mg alloy and has a wide range of applications. Especially in the construction industry, it is inseparable from the alloy and is the most promising alloy. Good corrosion resistance, excellent weldability, good cold workability and medium strength. The main alloying element of 5052 aluminum alloy is magnesium, which has good forming processability, corrosion resistance, weldability and medium strength. It is mainly used in the manufacture of aircraft fuel tanks, oil pipes, as well as transportation vehicles, ship sheet metal parts, instruments, street lamp brackets and rivets, hardware products, electric-shells and so on.

The 5052 aluminum alloy is the most widely used rust-proof aluminum. This alloy has high strength, especially fatigue strength, plasticity and corrosion resistance. The 5052 aluminum alloy cannot be heat-treated and strengthened, and the plasticity is good in the case of semi-cold hardening, and the plasticity is low in cold work hardening. The 5052 aluminum alloy has good weldability, poor machinability and polishing. It is mainly used for low-load parts working in liquid or gaseous media, various liquid containers and other small-load parts made of deep drawing, and wires used for rivets.
