5005 Alloy Metal Aluminum Sheet Plate

Aluminium alloy 5005 contains 0.8% magnesium, magnesium and aluminum alloy commonly available in flat rolled coil, 5005 aluminum sheet and plate from a wide range of producing mills.

It has medium strength, good weldability, and good corrosion resistance in marine atmospheres.Aluminum 5005 alloy metal is a lean aluminum magnesium alloy with low density and excellent thermal conductivity. Tempers H116 and H321 can be used in fresh and salt water.

5005 has only a very small addition of magnesium so is the least strength of 5000 series of alloys.

The alloy is hardenable to a significant degree by cold working, enabling a series of “H” tempers but again these do not achieve the high strengths of corresponding tempers in other alloys such as 5052 or 5083.

5005 Aluminum Sheet Applications

Buildings – Roofing, Cladding, Corrugated Sheet/ Signage, Road Signs & Name Plates/ Food & Chemical Equipment/ Furniture/ Anodised Parts/ HVAC Equipment/ Packaging/ Pipe and Tube/ Can Bodies/ Home appliances/ Sheet-metal work/ Electric conductors/ High Strength foil

Marine grade aluminium 5005 is widely used in ship shells. The form of the hull structure can be divided into three types: horizontal skeleton type, vertical skeleton type and mixed skeleton type. Aluminum alloy small fishing boats, the main end structure of large ships is usually horizontal skeleton structure. The aluminum alloy materials used on the hull are mainly plates, profiles and wide-width extruded slabs.

5005 aluminum sheet is also a non-heat treatable alloy and it can be strengthened (hardened) by cold working. However, hot working should not normally be necessary. Besides, it scores well in formability, especially in softer tempers. The machinability of 5005 aluminum sheet is generally fairly poor. 5005-H34 and 5003-H38 can be machined, but with much more difficult than many other aluminium alloys.
