AA5754 is one of the most widely used aluminium alloys. 5754 aluminum is an alloy of aluminum, further classified within the AA 5000 series (aluminum-magnesium wrought alloy). 5754 is the Aluminum Association (AA) designation for this material. In European standards, it will typically be given as EN AW-5754. AlMg3 is the EN chemical designation. And A95754 is the UNS number.
Aluminium 5754 sheets and plates exhibit greater corrosion resistance in both seawater corrosion and industrially polluted atmospheres, and is widely used for applications in marine, oil, & gas, chemical and nuclear industry.
5754 aluminium alloy is an alloy in the wrought aluminium -magnesium family (5000 or 5xxx series). It is closely related to the alloys 5154 and 5454 (Aluminum Association designations that only differ in the second digit are variations on the same alloy). Of the three 5×54 alloys, 5754 is the least alloyed (highest composition % of aluminium), but only by a small amount. It is used in similar applications. As a wrought alloy, it can be formed by rolling, extrusion, and forging, but not casting. It can be cold worked to produce tempers with a higher strength but a lower ductility.
What are the Various Tempers in with Aluminium 5754 Plates Can be Supplied?
The most common tempers for 5754 aluminium plates are shown below with H111, H22 being the most common tempers used:
- O – Soft
- H111 – Some work hardening imparted by shaping processes but less than required for H11 temper
- H22 – Work hardened by rolling then annealed to quarter hard
- H24 – Work hardened by rolling then annealed to half hard
- H26 – Work hardened by rolling then annealed to three-quarter hard
