Aluminum Alloy 5086 Data Sheet

ALUMINUM ALLOY 5086 GENERAL DESCRIPTION :

What is Alloy 5086?

5086 aluminum alloy is known for its superior corrosion resistance, moderate strength, and good formability. It strengthens through strain hardening, not heat treatment, making it easily weldable. Widely used in marine applications, transportation, and construction, it offers high electrical conductivity and excellent heat resistance.

Product Capacities of Alloy 5086

Typical Uses

5086 aluminum alloy is widely used in the marine industry due to its excellent corrosion resistance, particularly in saltwater environments, and its high strength.

Its superior corrosion resistance makes it ideal for use in shipbuilding, including the manufacturing of small boat hulls, superstructure parts, and deckhouses.

FAQs

What is the Difference Between 5083 and 5086 Aluminum?

5083 aluminum has a higher magnesium content, providing greater tensile strength and corrosion resistance. 5086 aluminum, while slightly less strong, offers better weldability and formability due to its lower magnesium content and additional manganese and chromium.
