5083 Aluminium Alloy

Commercial Aluminium

5083 Commercial Aluminium Alloy

5083 aluminium alloy is well known for its exceptional performance in the most extreme environments. The alloy displays high resistance to both seawater and industrial chemical environments.

The product offers the highest strength of all the non-heat-treatable alloys but should not be used in temperatures above 65°C.

Good Weldability

With good overall mechanical properties, 5083 aluminium alloy benefits from good weldability and retains its strength after this process. The material combines excellent ductility with good formability and performs well in low-temperature service.

Typical Applications

Commercial applications for this engineering material include:

  • Pressure vessels
  • Vehicle bodies
  • Shipbuilding
  • Rail cars
  • Tipper trucks bodies
  • Mine skips & cages

We stock 5083 in flats, round bar, plate, sheet, strip, hollow bar and square bar.
