Ⅰ: 5083 aluminum sheet introduction

Ⅰ-a: What is 5083 aluminum sheet?

5083 aluminum sheet belongs to Al-Mg-Si 5000 series aluminium alloys. Its main contents are Magnesium and Silicon except for Aluminum. Over 4.0% of Magnesium enables 5083 aluminum alloy to have excellent resistance to correction and is easy to weld. By adding copper, the 5083 aluminum sheet has 28% Electrical conductivity.

5083 aluminum sheet also has good forming characteristics for either hot or cold working. But hardening is accomplished by means of cold working only. Besides, the 5083 aluminum sheet does have good strength but is non-heat-treatable.

5083 aluminum sheets have higher strength than 5052 plates and have exceptional thermal conductivity. In tempered condition, it retains good formability due to excellent ductility. It is highly suitable for welding and can be hardened by cold work. Because Alloy 5083 exhibits excellent resistance to general corrosion, it is used in marine applications. Since Alloy 5083 is capable of withstanding extremely low temperatures without brittleness or loss of properties, it is especially suited to the cryogenic market. Alloy 5083 has been used in vehicle armor plates due to its high strength factor.

Ⅰ-b: 5083 aluminum sheet features:

1. Excellent Corrosion Resistance.5083 aluminum sheet can effectively resist corrosion from the atmosphere (including marine steam and industrial atmosphere), freshwater, seawater, neutral inorganic salt solution, most acids, and organic matter.

2. Good Weldability. No matter what kind of welding method, such as gas welding, arc welding, contact spot welding, wire welding, etc.,5083 aluminum sheets can show good weldability.

3. Other Characteristics. In addition, the 5083 aluminum sheet has good formability and high fatigue strength. However, the 5083 aluminum sheet can not be strengthened by heat treatment, and its plasticity is good when it is semi-cold-work hardened, its plasticity is low when it is cold-work hardened, and its machinability is general and other characteristics.

Ⅰ-c: Applications of 5083 aluminum sheet plate

With excellent corrosion resistance and weldability, together with high strength, 5083 alloys were 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, structural, and elevator cars.

5086-h111 aluminum is 5086 aluminum in the h111 temper. to achieve this temper, the metal is strain hardened to a strength that is lower than what is permissible for h11 (1/8-hard). it has the second-highest ductility compared to the other variants of 5086 aluminum.

Ⅳ: Marine grade class 5083 aluminum sheet advantages

Alloy 5083 aluminum plates have higher strength than 5052 plates and have exceptional thermal conductivity. In tempered condition, it retains good formability due to excellent ductility. It is highly suitable for welding and can be hardened by cold work. Because Alloy 5083 exhibits excellent resistance to general corrosion, it is used in marine applications. Since Alloy 5083 is capable of withstanding extremely low temperatures without brittleness or loss of properties, it is especially suited to the cryogenic market.

5083 aluminum sheet exhibits higher strength than 5052 sheets. its known for exceptional performance in extreme environments. 5083 is highly resistant to attack by both seawater and industrial chemical environments. Its greater corrosion resistance, especially against saltwater corrosion, makes it an excellent material for marine and processing applications. 5083 aluminum sheet performs well in extremely cold environments without becoming brittle. It is easy to form, stamp and weld.

Alloy 5083 also retains exceptional strength after welding. It has the highest strength of the non-heat-treatable alloys but is not recommended for use in temperatures in excess of 65°C.

5083 marine-grade aluminum sheet, the content of Mg is about 4.0-4.9%, which is higher than the Mg content in 5052 aluminum sheet. 5083 marine-grade aluminum sheet has moderate strength, offers excellent abilities in processing performance, weldability, and corrosion resistance, thus 5083 marine-grade aluminum sheet is the material of choice for shipbuilding. In addition, 5083 marine grade aluminum sheet is widely used in oil tanks, vehicle parts, electrical enclosures, etc.

Generally, 5052-H32 aluminum sheet or 5052-O aluminum sheet is an ideal material for yachts that drive in freshwater, given to its good corrosion resistance and competitive price. But for the ships in seawater, 5083-H116 aluminum sheet and 5083-H321 aluminum sheet is the best materials in a harsh environment, due to its high Mg content and a detailed manufacturing process, with excellent corrosion resistance.

V: 5083 aluminum sheet packaging

5083 aluminum sheet of henan huawei Aluminum. meet the export standard. Plastic film and brown paper can be covered at customers’ needs. What’s more, wooden case or wooden pallet is adopted to protect products from damage during the delivery. There are two kinds of packaging, which is eye to wall or eye to sky. Customers can choose either of them for their convenience. Generally speaking, there are 2 tons in one package, and loading 18-22 tons in 1×20′ container, and 20-24 tons in 1×40′ container.
