5052 Aluminum

Alro stocks 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.


Tensile Strength:           38,000 PSI
Yield Strength:              31,000 PSI
Elongation:                   14%
