Aluminum 5086 Pipe Fittings are known to have superior corrosion resistance due to their chemical composition. The Al-Mg alloy in the fittings is responsible for this specific property. The aluminum content of this alloy is 4 - 5%, while magnesium is 4 – 5%. This means that 5086 Pipe Fittings are composed of around 95% pure aluminum, giving it its desired strength and flexibility. In addition, Copper, Chromium, Iron, and Manganese are added in small quantities to provide the product with the desired durability, formability, and weldability. This combination makes Aluminum Pipe Fittings 5086 suitable for applications exposed to highly corrosive surroundings such as marine contexts.
Aluminum 5086 Pipe Fittings are highly praised for their strength and corrosion-resistant properties, making them the ideal choice for marine applications. Their weldability makes them great for industrial pressure vessels and architectural structures requiring robust and reliable fittings. In addition to these more traditional uses, 5086 Aluminum Pipe Fittings are an economical replacement in domestic water piping systems compared to copper or brass fittings. They can be applied in food process piping when lined with plastic due to their lack of flavor or odor transfer. Finally, they exhibit good electrical conductivity, which means they are well-suited for constructing wall plugs or high-voltage transformer enclosures. Aluminum 5086 Pipe Fittings make an excellent choice in many practical situations.
