5052 Aluminum Sheet Supplier
5052-H32 Aluminum Sheet - (ASTM B209, QQ-A-250/8) Aluminum alloy with magnesium added to make it much stronger than 3003 series aluminum. This grade has great corrosion resistance and has the best welding characteristics of all the aluminums. 5052 is the alloy most suited to forming operations, with good workability and higher strength than that of the 1100 or 3003 alloys that are commercially available.
5052 is not heat-treatable, but is stronger than most of the 5xxx series of alloys. It can be easily welded. 5052 is not a good choice for extensive machining operations, as it has only a fair machinability rating.
