What are the differences between 1060 aluminum sheet and 5052 aluminum sheet?


At present, 1060 aluminum plate and 5052 aluminum plate1060 aluminum plate can be universal, which makes many people believe that the performance of the two types of aluminum plate is similar. In fact, both chemical composition and mechanical properties, the difference is very far, the price difference is also very wide.

1060 aluminum plate, known as pure aluminum plate, is the most representative type of 1060 aluminum plate 1 series. The aluminium content of 1060 aluminum sheet is 99.6%, other element is 0.4%, its brand also comes from this. The production process of 1060 aluminum plate is relatively simple and mature. Compared with other alloy aluminum plate, 1060 aluminum plate has the most advantages in price, the longest application time and the most extensive range.

The advantage of 1060 aluminum plate is its high plasticity, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity, which are widely used in industries with low strength requirements. However, as pure aluminum, 1060 aluminum plate has low hardness, poor cutting performance and non-heat treatment enhancement, which limit its application.



5052 aluminum plate5052 aluminum plate has high strength, excellent fatigue resistance, high plasticity and corrosion resistance, good welding performance and can be cold-treated and strengthened. It is widely used in high-tech fields, complex environment and aerospace fields, such as auto parts, ship manufacturing, aircraft oil tank pipeline and so on.
