What is the difference between aluminum plate 5052 and 3003?

3003 aluminum plate and 5052 aluminum plate are the most common alloy aluminum plates on the market, and are the two most representative grades of the two series of aluminum plates. Although they are widely used, many people do not know the difference between the two. Below, take 3003H24 aluminum plate and 5052H24 aluminum plate as examples to popularize this knowledge for everyone.

  1. From the chemical composition, 3003 aluminum plate is an aluminum-manganese alloy, and the main alloying element is manganese. 5052 aluminum plate is an aluminum-magnesium alloy, and the main alloying element is magnesium. The aluminum content of 3003 aluminum plate is slightly higher than that of 5052 aluminum plate.
  2. In terms of mechanical properties, the tensile strength of 3003H24 aluminum plate is 145-195Rm/MPa, while the tensile strength of 5052H24 aluminum plate is as high as 230-280Rm/MPa, which is much higher than 3003H24 aluminum plate; the extension strength of 3003H24 aluminum plate is 115Rm/MPa, The extension strength of 5052H24 aluminum plate is 150Rm/MPa. Therefore, the performance of 5052 aluminum plate is significantly better than that of 3003 aluminum plate.
  3.  In terms of common specifications, 3003 aluminum plates are mainly thin plates, and there are not many applications for thick plates. In addition to thin plates, thick plates are also widely used for 5052 aluminum plates. The evolution of 5052 alloy aluminum pipes is the aluminum alloy strip used for 5052 alloy aluminum pipes. It is a three-layer composite material, the outer layer is an Al-Si solder layer, the middle is an Al-Mn core material, and the inner layer is an Al-Zn anticorrosive layer. The strip is formed by the forming unit and then welded by high frequency. Studies have shown that the use of high-frequency welding of aluminum alloy pipes has beautiful appearance, no pores and other defects, high welding speed, and uniform microstructure of the weld, which is an ideal welding process. A seamless plastic-lined aluminum alloy tube and its manufacturing process. The seamless plastic-lined aluminum alloy tube is composed of a plastic or plastic hollow tube and a seamless aluminum alloy tube. Wrapped in the outer wall of plastic or plastic hollow tube.

Both 3003 aluminum plate and 5052 aluminum plate are the most common alloy aluminum plates in the market, and they are the two most representative grades of the two series of aluminum plates. Although they are widely used, many people do not know the difference between the two. Below, take 3003H24 aluminum plate and 5052H24 aluminum plate as examples to popularize this knowledge for everyone.

Therefore, the performance of 5052 aluminum plate is significantly better than that of 3003 aluminum plate.
  3. From the common specifications, 3003 aluminum plates are mainly thin plates, and thick plates are not used much; and 5052 aluminum plates are widely used in addition to thin plates and thick plates.
  4. From the scope of application, 3003 aluminum sheet is mainly used in humid environments, such as product packaging, refrigerators, air conditioners, cold storage, ventilation ducts, and so on. The 5052 aluminum plate is often used in electrical enclosures, transportation vehicles, pressure vessels, etc., and is a common material for manufacturing automobile, aircraft fuel tanks, and fuel pipes.
  5. From the price of aluminum sheet, the price of 3003 aluminum sheet is slightly higher than that of pure aluminum sheet, while the price of 5052 aluminum sheet is significantly higher than that of 3003 aluminum sheet. According to different specifications and thickness, the price of a ton of 5052 aluminum sheet is about 2000-3000 yuan higher than the price of a ton of 3003 aluminum sheet.
