The Most Popular Marine Grade Aluminum Alloy Plate

The most commonly used marine grade aluminum plate is 5000 or 6000 series alloy,for example:marine grade aluminum 5052 5083 5086 5754 and 6061 6065.

Marine grade aluminum sheet 5052 is the most common type of 5 series and 6 series, because Marine grade 5052 has good metal properties, the material is strong and durable, it can also be used for a long time in wet and underwater environments, and it is not easy to be corroded and oxidized .

 5052 marine grade aluminum alloy sheet plate

Marine grade aluminum 5052 aluminum alloy belongs to the al-mg series of alloys. Due to its excellent weldability and corrosion resistance, it is very suitable for marine environments and is an ideal material for shipbuilding. Widely used in the manufacture of ship plate metal parts, bottom plates, portholes, bottom plates, side plates, etc.

5083 metal marine aluminum alloy plate

Marine grade aluminum 5083 alloy aluminium has higher strength than marine grade 5052 alloy aluminum and has 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 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.

 Why choose marine grade aluminum 5052 sheet?

1. Marine grade aluminum 5052 has high strength and specific modulus. Since the elastic modulus and density of aluminum alloys are roughly the same, which are closely related to the structural strength and size of the ship, increasing the yield strength within a certain range can reduce the tension of the ship structure. 5052 aluminum plate is of medium strength and can have excellent corrosion resistance and weldability at the same time.

2. Marine grade aluminum 5052 has excellent weldability. 5052 aluminum plate is not prone to cracks during welding.

3. Marine grade aluminum 5052 has excellent corrosion resistance. 5052 aluminum plate is a typical rust-proof aluminum plate, which has good corrosion resistance, can adapt to harsh marine environment and is durable.

4. The density of 5052 marine grade aluminum sheet is small. Aluminum alloy has a small specific gravity, which can reduce the weight of the ship board.
