What is the difference between aluminum sheet 3000 series and aluminum sheets 5 series ?

Among the existing 8 brands of aluminum plates, aluminum sheet 3000 series and aluminum sheets 5 series are the two series that are used more and are widely used in the industry. The 3 series aluminum plate is also called aluminum-manganese alloy, the main grades are 3003 and 3A21, and the 5 series aluminum plate is also called aluminum magnesium alloy, and the main grades are 5052, 5083, 5754, 5A05 and 5A06. As the two most widely used aluminum alloys, what is the specific difference between aluminum-manganese alloy and aluminum-magnesium alloy?

Aluminum-manganese alloy: 3 series aluminum plate has good rust resistance, good formability, high corrosion resistance and high strength.

Aluminum-magnesium alloy: 5 series aluminum plate has light weight, high strength, corrosion resistance, easy to color, low density, good heat dissipation and strong compression resistance. It can fully meet the requirements of high integration, thinning, miniaturization, anti-collision, electromagnetic shielding and heat dissipation of 3C products. Its stiffness is several times that of traditional plastic cases, but it is only one-third the weight.

In practical applications, 3-series aluminum sheets are mostly used in occasions requiring anti-corrosion and rust-proof properties, such as pipeline insulation, and ground anti-skid construction in cold storage; 5-series aluminum sheets are more used in manufacturing industries, such as aircraft, automobiles, radiators, etc. , more widely used, more commonly used grades.
