General Info About 5754 Aluminum

5754 aluminum sheet is a high strength non-heat treatable alloy with excellent corrosion resistance, good weldability and machinability. It is particularly good for seawater applications.

More Details About 5754 Aluminum

  • Advantages/Disadvantages

    5754 has excellent corrosion resistance, high strength, and good weldability. As a wrought alloy, it can be formed by rolling, extrusion, and forging. One disadvantage of this aluminum is that it is not heat treatable and cannot be used for casting.

  • Industries

    Some common industries for this grade include the marine and automotive industries. It is common in applications and industries requiring high strength and excellent corrosion resistance.

  • Applications

    Typical applications for this grade include: tread plates, vehicle bodies, fishing equipment, ship exterior, and parts.

  • Machining

    It has good machinability.

  • Welding

    It has good weldability.

  • Heat Treatment

    As with all 5000 series aluminum alloys, this grade is non-heat treatable.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do you compare the different 5754 tempers?

    ANSWER:

    This grade is available in H111, H114, H22, H24, and H26. Two main differences dependent on temper are strength and hardness. So, for example, when comparing H111 to H26, H26 is stronger and harder, with a maximum tensile strength of 200 for H111 versus 305 for H26. This implies that H26 would be better suited for applications requiring higher strength and impact resistance, while H111 might be better suited where forming is needed.

  • What makes 5754 aluminum suitable for marine applications?

    ANSWER:

    This grade is resistant to saltwater corrosion, ensuring that the aluminum will withstand frequent exposure to marine environments without deterioration or rust.

  • What makes this grade good for the automotive industry?

    ANSWER:

    5754 aluminum shows great drawing characteristics and maintains high strength. It can be easily welded and anodized for great surface finishing. Because it is easy to form and process, this grade works well for car doors, paneling, flooring, and other parts.
