5000 Series Marine Aluminum Plate

5000 series marine aluminum plate is popular in shipbuilding. In fact, because marine grade aluminum sheet has special requirements on strength, corrosion resistance and weldability, so marine aluminum usually adopts Al-Mg alloy, Al-Mg-Si alloy and Al-Zn-Mg alloy. Among them, 5000 series aluminum are Al-Mg alloys, which are most widely used in ships. Such as 5083, 5086, 5754, 5456 and 5052 alloy plates.

Advantages of 5000 Series Marine Aluminum Plate

In fact, 6000 series alloys are prone to intergranular corrosion in seawater, so they are common in shipboard layer structures. For 7000 series Al-Zn-Mg alloy, the disadvantage is poor corrosion resistance, so the application scope is limited. To sum up, 5000 series aluminum plate for marine grade application is the most widely used at present. It has very high practicality!

Typical Alloys of 5000 Series Marine Aluminum Plate

Among them, 5083 aluminum plate is the most representative product of 5000 series marine aluminum plate. 5083 marine grade aluminum sheet has moderate strength, good corrosion resistance, formability, and high fatigue resistance. So It is the prefect material of the main hull structure. 5083 aluminum alloy composition is Al allowance, Si 0.40, Cu less than 0.10, Mg 4.0 to 4.9, Zn 0.25, Mn 0.40 to 1, Ti 0.15, Cr 0.25, Fe 0.25, Iron 0.40 to 0.25.

In addition, 5086 aluminum plate is also a representative product. The commonly used temper include O, H111, H112, H116, H321, etc. And the composition of 5083 aluminum alloy is Al allowance, Mg 3.5~4.5; Zn ≤0.25; Mn 0.20~0.7; Ti ≤0.15; Cr 0.05~0.25; Fe 0.0~ 0.5.

Others such as 5052, 5086, 5454, 5456 are also common in hull structures or pressure vessels, pipes, ships and decks, etc. Here, It’s worth noting that, the thickness of the aluminum plate depends on the structure of the hull, the size of the boat and the location where it is used. Besides, considering the weight of the hull, generally try to use aluminum alloy plate. But the corrosion depth of the plate should be considered in use, and the plate of more than 1.6mm and the thick aluminum plate of more than 30mm is better.
