Applications of 5052 Aluminum
5052 aluminum is stronger than other popular alloys and has increased corrosion resistance. These characteristics allow 5052 aluminum to excel in the marine industry as well as in electronics and chemical applications. The uses of 5052 aluminum are vast, but some notable applications include:
- Checker plates
- Pressure vessels
- Marine equipment
- Electronic enclosures
- Electronic chassis
- Hydraulic tubes
- Medical equipment
- Hardware signs
to name a few common examples.
Type 5052 aluminum does not contain any copper, which means it does not readily corrode in a saltwater environment that can attack and weaken copper metal composites. 5052 aluminum alloy is, therefore, the preferred alloy for marine and chemical applications, where other aluminum would weaken with time. 5052 aluminum in the presence of alkaline soil may cause corrosive effects such as pitting, but this is difficult to generalize due to high variation in soil compositions. Due to its high magnesium content, 5052 is particularly good at resisting corrosion from concentrated nitric acid, ammonia and ammonium hydroxide. Any other caustic effects can be mitigated/removed by using a protective layer coating, making 5052 aluminum alloy highly attractive for applications which need an inert-yet-tough material.
