Aluminium Alloy 5083 Plates is a medium-strength alloy known for its excellent resistance to corrosion in marine environments and offers exceptional weldability. Its high strength-to-weight ratio makes it ideal for applications where weight is an important factor. The composition of Aluminium Alloy 5083 includes Magnesium (Mg) 4.0-4.9%; Silicon (Si) 0.4-1.0%; Manganese (Mn) 0.40-1.0%; Iron (Fe) 0.45% max; Copper (Cu) 0 % max; Zinc(Zn) 0 % max; Titanium(Ti): 0% max; Other Elements: Each ≤ 0, 05%, Total ≦0, 15%.
Aluminum Alloy 5083 Plates have a variety of uses due to their excellent mechanical and corrosion-resistant properties. Commonly used in the marine industry, these plates are also suited for cryogenic applications, pressure vessels, storage tanks, automotive components and general engineering applications such as structural supports and bridges. They have good weldability and sturdy constructional integrity and perform formability processes well. This type of alloy is heat-treatable with higher magnesium levels than any other aluminium alloy, making it suitable for welding without risk of cracking or embrittlement.
