5754 aluminum plate and 5052 aluminum plate both belong to the 5000 series aluminum-magnesium alloy and are two commonly used aluminum alloy plates. Its main element is magnesium. Although both have high strength and good corrosion resistance, there are several differences. Let’s explain the difference between the two in detail:
1.Chemical composition: The magnesium and silicon content of 5754 aluminum plate are higher than that of 5052 aluminum plate.
2.Strength and toughness: 5052 aluminum sheetis known for its medium strength and good formability. Compared with it, 5754 aluminum sheet has higher strength and better toughness while still maintaining good formability.
3.Weldability and corrosion resistance:The silicon content of 5754 aluminum plate is higher than that of 5052 aluminum plate. The high silicon content makes 5754 aluminum sheet easier to weld than 5052 aluminum sheet, less prone to welding cracks, and more corrosion-resistant.
4.Anodizing performance:5052 aluminum plate is easier to anodize than 5754 aluminum plate. If you are looking for a material that is easy to color, 5052 is your best choice.
5.Application areas: 5052 aluminum sheets are commonly used in the manufacture of automobile fuel tanks, oil pipes, sheet metal parts of transportation vehicles and ships, instruments, street lamp brackets and rivets, hardware products, electrical casings, etc. 5754 aluminum sheets are widely used in welded structures, storage tanks, pressure vessels, ship structures and offshore facilities, transportation tanks, and applications requiring excellent processing performance, excellent corrosion resistance, high fatigue strength, high weldability and medium static strength.
6.Price:Generally, the price of 5754 aluminum plate is higher than that of 5052 aluminum plate.
