Aluminum Sheet 5052 is a thin, flat shaped sheet of 5052 aluminum alloy.
5052 Aluminum Alloy’s fatigue strength is higher than most aluminum alloys.
It has particularly good resistance to marine atmosphere and salt water corrosion.
Having excellent workability, it may be drawn or formed into intricate shapes. When annealed, it has slightly greater strength which minimizes tearing that can occur in 1100 or 3003 grades.
5052 Aluminum Alloy has excellent finishing characteristics with bright, clear anodic coatings.
