The high-quality characteristics of the hot-selling product 5052 aluminum plate of HuaMei Aluminum:

1. 5052 aluminum plate has high corrosion resistance.

5052 Aluminum Plate It is an alloy containing 0.25% chromium and 2.5% magnesium. It is widely used due to its formability and durability. It has high fatigue and moderate static strength. It can be used in marine environments without fear of corrosion. This metal also has excellent thermal conductivity and low density, which is common in other aluminum alloys. Its fatigue properties and endurance limit are excellent. The endurance limit is 125 MPa in H34 temper and 115 MPa in H32 temper.

2.5052 aluminum plate can be cold work hardened.

The aluminum sheet manufacturer can harden the alloy by cold work when required. 5052 aluminum sheet cannot be hardened using heat treatment. Compared to 5005 alloy plate, this grade of aluminum has better resistance in marine environments. It also has excellent corrosion resistance when used in weak alkaline conditions. 5052 aluminum plate has a protective surface film that makes the metal resistant to corrosion. When damage occurs, a quick reaction between aluminum and oxygen repairs it. If the film cannot be repaired, it can rapidly corrode the base metal. To prevent this from happening, the metal can be anodized, which thickens the protective surface film.

3.5052 aluminum plate for heat treatment

Not only that, but 5052 aluminum sheets can also be heat treated, which should be done at 653 degrees Fahrenheit; the rate and time of cooling at this temperature is not critical. Strain relief is rarely required, but can be done at 428 degrees Fahrenheit. Stress relief should be used when strength loss is a concern. This metal is also easy to machine and weld.
