Aluminium 5086 Barrel Nipple Pipe Fittings is an alloy of 95-97% aluminium and 2.5-3% magnesium. It also contains small amounts of manganese, chromium, iron, silicon, titanium and copper, contributing to its superior strength and flexibility over pure aluminium. 5086 has excellent corrosion resistance in both seawater and industrial chemical atmospheres, making it an ideal choice for marine applications such as barrel nipple pipe fittings. It is also lighter than other alloys putting less strain on the overall pipe system and allowing for greater flexibility. Additionally, Aluminium 5086 is easy to machine into any desired shape, making it useful for intricate designs of pipes or hollowed-out components of a complete fitment.

5086 Aluminium Barrel Nipple Pipe Fittings are popular in plumbing due to their strength, durability and cost-effectiveness. These fittings are known for having the highest cold formability of all non-heat-treatable aluminium alloys. The low inherent stress levels make them ideal for use in many industrial and commercial applications, such as transportation, mining, and construction. Furthermore, these fittings are highly resistant to corrosion and offer excellent thermal properties making them often favoured for buildings, process piping systems, bridges and structures that require high-integrity connections between pipelines. Their weldability is also superior compared to other aluminium alloys. All this makes Aluminium 5086 Barrel Nipple Pipe Fittings a very versatile option when it comes to plumbing solutions.

FAQ's for Aluminium 5086 Barrel Nipple Pipe Fittings

The Harmonized System (HS) code for Aluminium 5086 Barrel Nipple Pipe Fittings is 73072390. This code applies to fittings made of brass or steel, regardless of whether the fittings are plated or coated.

Welding aluminium 5086 barrel nipple pipe fittings require appropriate safety precautions and specialized equipment, such as TIG welding machines. The process involves pre-heating the components prior to welding and gradually increasing the heat until a weld pool is formed.

No, aluminium 5086 barrel nipple pipe fittings are not magnetic. Due to their properties, aluminium alloys are non-magnetic and resistant to corrosion. Therefore, they can be used in a wide range of applications where a non-magnetic material is required.
