5083 Alloy Metal Aluminum Sheet Plate

5083 aluminum plate belongs to Al-Mg-Si aluminum alloys. Its main contents are Magnesium and Silicon except Aluminum. Over 4.0% of Magnesium enables 5083 aluminum plate to have excellent resistance to correction, and easily to welded. By adding cooper, 5083 aluminum plate has 28% Electrical conductivity. 5083 aluminum plate also has good forming characteristic for either hot or cold working. But hardening is accomplished by means of cold working only. Besides, 5083 aluminum plate does have good strength but non-heat treatable.

5005 Aluminum Sheet Applications

With excellent corrosion resistance and weldability, together with high strength, 5083 alloy was designed for welded structures requiring maximum joint strength and efficiency. Can be anodized for increased corrosion resistance, but does not lend itself to decorative applications. Not meant to be a machining alloy, but can be machined fairly well with proper preparations. Because of its relatively high magnesium content, the workability rating would only be fair. Non-heat treatable. Typical applications include large marine craft, containers, railroad cars, structurals and elevator cars.
5083 aluminum plate has vast applications for its properties. It is commonly used in the manufacture of marine, auto aircraft cryogenics, storage tank, railway cars, coachwork, armor plate, building construction, pressure vessels, etc.
