5052-h32 aluminum alloy is a high strength, non-heat treatable metal material that contains magnesium as its added character element. However, aluminum 5052-h32 also contains small amounts of chromium, silicon, iron, copper, manganese and zinc to add additional strength to the aluminum base product. This corrosion resistant product also provides excellent weldability and cold-working capabilities, which makes it suitable for numerous applications.
Additionally, aluminum 5052-h32 possesses outstanding corrosion resistance, especially to salt water, and can be easily welded. Its high fatigue strength makes it an excellent selection for structures that need to withstand excessive vibrations. It also provides good workability, making it very useful in forming operations. However, this product is only rated as fair in terms of machinability, so it is advised to only machine it in certain situations
5052 common alloy aluminum - an aluminum alloy, primarily alloyed with magnesium and chromium. It has good workability, medium static strength, high fatigue strength, good weldability, and very good corrosion resistance, especially in marine atmospheres. It also has the low density and excellent thermal conductivity common to all aluminum alloys. It is commonly used in sheet, plate and tube form.
