Aluminium 5086 Bars are an alloy of aluminium, magnesium and manganese. It is a medium to high-strength non-heat-treatable alloy that offers excellent corrosion resistance in marine, chemical processing and other highly corrosive environments. It has good weldability and formability characteristics and improved stress corrosion cracking resistance compared to other 5000 series alloys.
Aluminium 5086 Bars are an alloy of the 5000 series and are primarily used for marine and construction purposes due to their high corrosion resistance. They offer excellent weldability and good formability, strength, and fatigue. Furthermore, they possess low thermal expansion rates and good electrical conductivity. Their wide range of applications includes transportation parts (bus frames), ship structures, bridge supports, offshore platforms, pressure vessels, etc.
