Aluminium Alloy 5005 is an aluminium-magnesium alloy offering moderate strength and excellent corrosion resistance. It has a composition of 0.8% Manganese, 0.6 % Magnesium, 0.25 % Chromium and up to 99% Aluminum by weight, with trace elements making up the balance. This aluminium alloy offers good workability, weldability and formability characteristics, and conductivity for heat transfer applications. Its uses range from heat exchangers to storing food containers due to its superior durability when exposed to salt water or other corrosive elements in the atmosphere.
Aluminium alloy 5005 plates have a wide array of uses and properties. It is corrosion-resistant, has a high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent formability. Moreover, it can be easily welded, brazed with or anodized for further mechanical protection and attractive appearance. This makes it ideal for roofing panels, construction beams and road transport vehicles. Its outstanding thermal properties enable its use in heat exchangers, power plants, air conditioning systems and other heat-demanding industries. Furthermore, its electromagnetic shielding capabilities make it best-suitable for commercial electronics applications.
