What is 5083 grade aluminium? 5083 aluminum alloy is an aluminum alloy containing magnesium and trace amounts of manganese and chromium. It is highly resistant to seawater and industrial chemicals. 5083 grade aluminum alloy still has special strength after welding. It has the highest strength of a non-heat treatable alloy, with an ultimate tensile strength of 317 MPa or 46,000 psi and a tensile yield strength of 228 MPa or 33,000 psi. Not recommended for use at temperatures above 65°C.
The anodized surface of 5083 aluminum plate is beautiful. Arc welding has good properties. The main alloying element of 5083 aluminum alloy is magnesium, which has good formability, corrosion resistance, weldability and medium strength. 5083 aluminum sheet is an aluminum-magnesium alloy that is widely used, especially in the construction industry. It is the most promising alloy with good corrosion resistance, good weldability, good cold workability, medium strength. 5083 aluminum plate is used in the manufacture of aircraft fuel tanks, oil pipes, sheet metal parts for transportation vehicles and ships, instruments, street lamp brackets and rivets, hardware products, electrical casings, etc.
The most common tempers for 5083 aluminum are: O – soft, H111 – some work hardening imparted by the forming process, but less tempered than H11 and H32 – work hardened by rolling, then stabilized to a quarter hard by low temperature heat treatment.
Manufacture performance of 5083 grade aluminum alloy:
Solderability – Gas: Average
