What is the difference between 5052 aluminum alloy sheet and 5754 aluminum alloy sheet?

5052 aluminum alloy sheet and 5754 aluminum alloy sheet both belong to 5000 series aluminum magnesium alloy, belongs to the more commonly used alloy aluminum plate series, the main element is magnesium, magnesium content between 3-5%, the main characteristics of low density, high tensile strength, high elongation.

5754 aluminum alloy sheet

5 series aluminum sheet is a widely used rust-proof aluminum, this alloy has high strength, especially with fatigue strength: plasticity and corrosion resistance is high, can not be heat treated to strengthen, plasticity is still good when semi-cold work hardening, plasticity is low when cold work hardening, good corrosion resistance, good weldability, poor machinability, polishable.

5052 aluminum plate magnesium content is slightly higher than 5754, 5052 aluminum plate hardness is better, 5754 aluminum plate toughness is better.

5052 aluminum plate is commonly used in the manufacture of automotive fuel tanks, fuel pipes, and transportation vehicles, ship's sheet metal parts, instruments, street light brackets and rivets, hardware products, electrical housings, etc..

5754 aluminum plate is widely used in welding structures, storage tanks, pressure vessels, ship structures and offshore facilities, transportation tanks and for applications requiring excellent processing properties, excellent corrosion resistance, high fatigue strength, high weldability and medium static strength.
