Aluminium alloy 5082 Plates is a medium-strength alloy with excellent corrosion resistance in marine environments. It contains a significant amount of magnesium and manganese, which makes it ideal for applications exposed to extreme temperatures, salt water, or other harsh elements. The composition of this plate includes 4-4.5% Mg, 0.6-1% Mn, 0.25 max Si, and up to 0.2 Fe as the primary elements with trace amounts of Ti Cu Ni Pb Cr Zn V Sn Al remaining at their low levels for improved formability and strength characteristics through controlled heat treatment processes.
Aluminium Alloy 5082 Plates are known for their corrosion resistance, lightweight, and high strength. It is also weldable and formable. This alloy is widely used in marine applications such as shipbuilding, marine-grade rivets, etc. Additionally, it can be used in transportation sectors to manufacture trailers and tanker trucks due to its excellent fatigue properties. Due to its good impact resistance, it is also popularly used in the defence industry for producing military vehicles and armour panels.
