5052 aluminum plate sheet is the highest strength alloy of the more common non-heat-treatable grades. Fatigue strength is higher than most aluminum alloys. Particularly good resistance to marine atmosphere and salt water corrosion. Excellent workability. It may be drawn or formed into intricate shapes and its slightly greater strength in the annealed condition minimizes tearing that can occur in 1100 or 3003. 5052 aluminum plate sheet in Excellent finishing characteristics with bright, clear anodic coatings.
Typical Applications 5052 plate sheet: Wide variety from aircraft components to home appliances, marine and transportation industry parts, heavy duty cooking utensils, and equipment for bulk processing food.
