Product Capacities of Alloy 5005

Typical Uses

5005 aluminum alloy is commonly used in architectural applications like aluminum facades, curtain walls, and anodized structures due to its excellent corrosion resistance, good formability, uniform anodized finish, moderate strength, ease of welding, and lightweight properties.

FAQs

Is 5005 Better than 5052 for Welding?

Yes, 5005 aluminum is generally considered better than 5052 for welding. This is because 5005 has a lower magnesium content, which makes it easier to weld without cracking. While 5052 has higher strength and better corrosion resistance, its higher magnesium content can make it more challenging to weld, especially in thicker sections.

What is the Difference Between 5005 and 3003 Aluminum?

The primary differences between 5005 and 3003 aluminum lie in their composition and properties. 3003 aluminum is alloyed with manganese, providing good corrosion resistance and excellent formability. In contrast, 5005 aluminum contains magnesium, offering better corrosion resistance and higher strength than 3003.
