AL5052 is an aluminium alloy, with magnesium and chromium as the primary alloying elements. Although It is non heat-treatable, it is the highest strength alloy of other non-heat-treatable grades also featuring an excellent weldability using most common techniques, high resistance to marine atmoshpere and salt water corrosion, smooth surface, lightweight and high-tensile strength. This alloy is comparable to the 6061 aluminum alloy (AL6061).
AL5052-O aluminum alloy Annealed round tubes are offered as part of our own branded (AVIATIONEU NEW ERA) product and can be used for low and medium pressure hydraulic systems, fuel lines and oil lines. They withstand a higher pressure than 3003-0 tubing and can be gas, arc and resitance welded and coiled. They meet WW-T-700/4, AMS 4070M and ASTM-B-210-12 specifications. Sourced from quality producers, they are offered in different outer diameters and wall thicknesses in inches and pre cut lengths of 6 feet and in 6 ft increments each. Cuts to smaller lenghts may be arranged with the supplier providing that minimum order quantity requirements are observed. They are also offered as ALCLAD for the enhancement of their corrosion-resistance (please refer to the separate product presentation). There is additional cost if manufacturing test reports are required.
