Alloy 5052 is a non-heat-treatable 2½% magnesium, 0.25% chromium alloy commonly available in flat rolled coil, sheet and plate form. Like all the 5000-series high magnesium alloys 5052 has a fairly high strength and is hardenable to a significant degree by cold working, enabling a series of “H” tempers.
5052 Alloy can be offered in various tempers, the most commonly used being H32 (¼ Hard) and H34 (½ Hard) – as well as the soft annealed Temper O condition.
5052 Aluminium sheets offer extremely good corrosion resistance in a wide range of atmospheric environments, and is regularly used for food, architectural and marine applications. 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 aluminium alloys. It is commonly used in sheet, plate and tube form. Typical Applications Architecture, general sheet metal work, heat exchangers.
