Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why is this grade common in the automotive industry?

    ANSWER:

    This performance alloy is preferred for auto body paneling like hoods, wing plates and doors, due to excellent surface finishing that is not prone to crack or bubble. This is also the case when it comes to welding. This grade is particularly excellent for a variety of welding techniques without risk of cracking or bending due to softening at weld points. High quality welds result in better safety and vehicle performance. Additionally, high strength-to-weight ratio leads to an overall lighter material. This has immediate benefits for auto manufacturing, since a lighter vehicle that remains strong and durable is able to meet safety standards while also lowering fuel emissions.

  • How does this grade compare to 5052 aluminum series?

    ANSWER:

    These two 5xxx series alloys share the same base composition. The main difference is that 5182 has a greater percentage of magnesium than 5052, whereas 5052 has more aluminum. More magnesium directly results in mechanical differences related to strength. For example, when you compare the ultimate tensile strength, depending on the temper 5052 has a range of 27 MPa to 41 MPa while 5182 exhibits a range of 41 MPa to 61 MPa.
