What is “5052 aluminum sheet”?

In “5052 aluminum sheet”, the number “5052” indicates the alloy series and specific alloy composition of the aluminum sheet.

“5” stands for alloy series. Among aluminum alloys, the alloy series beginning with “5” usually belong to the magnesium-aluminum alloy series, also known as the 5xxx series. These alloys have magnesium (Mg) as the main alloying element.

“0” indicates the purity level of the alloy, indicating the purity level without special requirements.

“52” is the identification number of a specific alloy, which is used to distinguish the composition and characteristics of different aluminum alloys. In 5052 alloy, aluminum (Al) is the main element, magnesium (Mg) is the main alloying element, supplemented by other elements such as chromium (Cr) and manganese (Mn).

Therefore, “5052 aluminum sheet” refers to the aluminum sheet whose alloy series is 5052, which contains aluminum, magnesium and other alloying elements, has specific mechanical properties and corrosion resistance, and is suitable for various applications.
