Aluminium alloy 5083 flanges combine pure aluminium and other properties such as magnesium, manganese, chromium and zinc. These elements lend the alloy increased strength through improved chemical composition to provide excellent performance in extreme industrial applications where corrosion or high temperatures are likely. It’s also highly resistant to environmental factors due to its strength and durability. This makes it suitable for engineering projects that require strong and durable components, often found in the marine industry.
Aluminium Alloy 5083 flanges are typically used in applications such as cryogenics, gas turbine components, aerospace engineering, yacht building, etc. This alloy type is corrosion-resistant, has excellent weldability properties, and has an intermediate strength level. It has the highest resistance to saltwater compared to all other aluminium alloys, and it's heat-treatable for increased strength. 5083 flanges offer a range of dimensional stability electrical and thermal conductivity capabilities, making them an ideal choice for many industries.
