Aluminium Alloy 5086 Plates are heat-treatable, making them strong and durable for various applications. It is composed mostly of aluminium, magnesium, and manganese in varying proportions. With excellent fatigue strength, corrosion resistance, weldability and forming capabilities, these plates are ideal for naval vessels, storage tanks and many other marine applications. Its composition also makes it perfect for cryogenic temperatures – thus, it can be used in cryogenic engineering components or equipment when low-temperature stability is required.
Aluminium Alloy 5086 Plates exhibit excellent weldability, corrosion resistance, formability and strength properties. Due to their high heat tolerance capabilities, they are extensively used in marine applications such as shipbuilding and oil rigs. They are also suited for cryogenic storage applications due to their low thermal conductivity. Moreover, these plates can be easily machined and anodized to achieve the desired surface finishes. Overall, Aluminium Alloy 5086 Plates provide great versatility with a high strength-to-weight ratio, making them suitable for different industry applications.
