More Details About Each Aluminum Plate

  • 5052

    This plate grade is typically used in marine, automotive, and machine applications, including mailboxes, ladders, railings, and more. It has good corrosion resistance, workability, and formability. 5052 is considered one of the strongest non-heat-treatable alloys and can be strengthened through the work-hardening process.

  • 6061

    This plate grade is made of one of the most versatile aluminum alloys. It has medium strength, formability, machinability, weldability, and corrosion resistance. Therefore it is used for tooling plate, architectural applications, bridge railing components, transportation equipment, and welded structural application.

Some typical applications include components in the aerospace industry, structural components, and bridge components.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is aluminum plate?

    ANSWER:

    It is machined to shape by passing the metal through high presser rollers. Typically, it is 0.25 inches and thicker, and are often used as the skin of jets and spacecraft fuel tanks.

  • Is 6061 or 7075 plate stronger?

    ANSWER:

    7075 plate is slightly stronger than 6061 plate.

  • What is the difference between 5052 and 6061 plate?

    ANSWER:

    6061 aluminum is one of the most well-known aluminum grades, and its primary alloying elements are magnesium and silicon. These alloying elements make 6061 aluminum heat-treatable and thus stronger than the 5052 aluminum. On the other side, 5052 aluminum is more formable than 6061 aluminum.

  • What is the difference between 3003 and 5052 aluminum?

    ANSWER:

    The chemical composition is the main difference between 3003 and 5052 aluminum. 3003 aluminum alloy’s main alloying element is manganese, and magnesium for 5052 aluminum alloy. The tensile and yield strength of the 5052 aluminum is much better than 3003 aluminum, and therefore the performance of the 5052 aluminum can be better than 3003 .
