3003 aluminum strip and 5052 aluminum strip are widely used on the market. Their production and market demand yearly are huge. 3003 aluminum strip is on behalf of series 3 .while 5052 aluminum strip is the representative of series 5, but many people are not very clear about the difference between these two kinds of aluminum, haomei Aluminum as a domestic leader in aluminum will popularize the difference between them:
1. In the chemical composition, 3003 aluminum strip is Al-Mn alloy, and the main alloying element is manganese. 5052 aluminum strip is Al-Mg alloy, and the main alloying element is magnesium. The aluminum content of the 3003 aluminum strip is a little more than that of the 5052 aluminum strip .
2.From the mechanical properties, the tensile strength of 3003H24 aluminum strip in 145-195Rm/MPa, while the tensile strength of 5052H24 aluminum strip is up to 230-280Rm/MPa, which is much higher than that of 3003H24 aluminum strip ; The yield strength of 3003H24 aluminum strip is 115Rm/MPa, and the yield strength of 5052H24 aluminum sheet is 150Rm/MPa. Therefore, the performance of the 5052 aluminum strip should be better than the 3003 aluminum strip .
3. From commonly used specifications, 3003 aluminum strip is mainly used in the plate, and the application of the thick plate is not much, while 5052 aluminum strip is widely used both in thin plate and thick plate.
4. From the scope of application, 3003 aluminum strip is mainly used in humid environment, such as product packaging, refrigerator, air conditioning, cold storage, ventilation ducts, etc.. While 5052 aluminum strip is used in electrical enclosure, transportation vehicles, pressure vessels, etc., and it is the common material of the manufacture of automobiles, aircraft fuel tanks and oil tubes.
5. From the price, the price of 3003 aluminum strip is slightly higher than the pure aluminum sheet, while the price of 5052 aluminum strip is significantly higher than the 3003 aluminum plate. According to the different specifications and thickness,a ton of 5052 aluminum strip ’ price is higher than a ton of 3003 aluminum strip ’price about 300-600 usd.
Although 3003 aluminum strip and 5052 aluminum strip are often used as anti rust aluminum, the difference between them is still very obvious, so the enterprise must choose the right products according to the production needs.
