Aluminium Alloys: Properties and Applications*

SeriesAlloyPropertiesApplications
5000 series
Alloyed with magnesium
Superb corrosion resistance
5005A medium strength, general purpose alloy
Most often used in sheet or plate form
Appliances, utensils, sheet metal, high-strength foil
5052Medium strength, high corrosion resistance
Good weldability, good cold formability
High strength sheet metal, appliances, architectural paneling, treadplate, marine applications
5083High strength, high corrosion resistance
Retains exceptional strength after welding
Transport and structural applications, unfired welded pressure vessels, marine applications
6000 series
Alloyed with magnesium and silicon
Easy to machine, highly weldable
6005Medium strength, heat treatable
Can be forged, rolled or extruded
Pylons, ladders and piplelines, railway and bus profiles, structural applications
6060Heat treatable, highly weldable
Can be forged, rolled or extruded
Architectural profiles, curtain walls, railings and fences, general purpose extrusions
6061Heat treated, good mechanical properties
One of the most common extrusions
Transport, marine, aircraft, structural applications where corrosion resistance is needed
6082Medium strength, high corrosion resistance
Commonly machined in plate form
Transport and marine, trusses, bridges and cranes
6106Good resistance, weldability and formability
Suitable for highly complex shapes
