3003 5052 aluminum sheet is the most common alloy aluminum plate on the market, is the most representative of the two series of aluminum plate 2 grades, these two models of aluminum plate are more widely used. Next, take 5052H24 aluminum plate and 3003H24 aluminum plate as an example, to introduce the difference between the two.
1. from the chemical composition.
5052 aluminum plate is aluminum-magnesium alloy, the main alloying element is magnesium. 3003 aluminum plate is aluminum-manganese alloy, the main alloying element is manganese, 3003 aluminum plate aluminum content is slightly higher than 5052 aluminum plate.
2. From mechanical properties.
The tensile strength of 3003H24 aluminum plate is 145-195Rm/MPa, while the tensile strength of 5052H24 aluminum plate is as high as 230-280Rm/MPa, much higher than 3003H24 aluminum plate;
The elongation strength of 3003H24 aluminum plate is 115Rm/MPa, while the elongation strength of 5052H24 aluminum plate is 150Rm/MPa.
Therefore, the performance of 5052 aluminum plate is significantly better than 3003 aluminum plate.
3. From common specifications.
3003 aluminum plate is mainly thin plate, the application of thick plate is not much; and 5052 aluminum plate in addition to thin plate, thick plate is also widely used.
4. from the scope of application.
5052 aluminum plate is commonly used in electrical enclosures, transportation vehicles, pressure vessels, etc., is a common material for manufacturing cars, aircraft fuel tanks, oil pipes.
3003 aluminum plate is mainly used in wet environments, such as product packaging, refrigerators, air conditioners, cold storage, ventilation ducts and so on.
5. From the price of aluminum plate.
The price of 3003 aluminum plate is slightly higher than that of pure aluminum plate, while the price of 5052 aluminum plate is significantly higher than that of 3003 aluminum plate.
According to different specifications and thickness, the price of a ton of 5052 aluminum plate is higher than the price of a ton of 3003 aluminum plate.
5052 aluminum plate and 3003 aluminum plate although often used as rust-proof aluminum, but the difference between the two kinds of aluminum plate is still very obvious, companies must choose the right aluminum plate products according to production needs, I hope the above introduction to the difference between 5052 aluminum plate and 3003 aluminum plate can help you.
