5005 Aluminum

Description

5005 contains nominally 0.8% magnesium. It has medium strength, good weldability, and good corrosion resistance in marine atmospheres. It also has the low density and excellent thermal conductivity common to all aluminium alloys. This is a non-heat treatable alloy of aluminum with magnesium content. Cold working will strengthen (harden) the alloy and it is very good in both corrosion resistance and weldability.

Applications

Commonly used in the manufacture of appliances, small boats, gas lines, refrigerator panels, and utensils. 5005 is also used in architectural components, and as an electrical conductor. Especially useful where excessive finishing costs are encountered in the use of 3003 alloys due to surface roughness upon drawing.
