What is the difference between 5052 thick aluminum plate and 6061 aluminum plate

The 5052 aluminum plate is an AL-Mg alloy aluminum plate. Magnesium is the main alloying element in the 5052 alloy aluminum plate. It is the most widely used rust-proof aluminum. The alloy has high strength, especially fatigue resistance: plasticity and corrosion resistance. High in nature, can not be heat-treated, plasticity is good in semi-cold hardening, low in plasticity during cold work, good in corrosion resistance, good weldability, poor machinability and polishing.

The main alloying elements in 6061 alloy are magnesium and silicon. They have medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability and good oxidation effect. They are widely used in various industrial structural parts requiring high strength and high antibacterial properties.

Simply speaking, what you do, 5052 can be bent, 6061 hardness is high, the abrasives are generally used 6061 aluminum plate, the oxidation effect of both alloys is very good.

What is the difference between 5052 aluminum plate and 6061 aluminum plate?

The main alloying elements in 6061 aluminum plate are magnesium and silicon. It has medium strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability and good oxidation effect. Alcoa 6061 has excellent processing properties, good corrosion resistance, high toughness and processing. After the deformation, the color film is easy, the oxidation effect is excellent and so on.

The 5052 aluminum plate is Al-Mg rust-proof aluminum. Compared with 3A21, the 5052 has higher strength, especially high fatigue strength. Similar to 3A21, it has high plasticity and corrosion resistance; heat treatment cannot be strengthened, and contact welding and hydrogen are used. The atomic welding has good weldability, and there is a tendency of crystal cracking during argon arc welding; the alloy has good machinability in cold hardening and semi-cold hardening, and the machinability is poor in the annealed state, which can be polished.
