Aluminum 5052 sheet alloy temper
|Alloy And Temper||Features||Applications|
|5052 o aluminum sheet||The O temper is the softest state of the 5052 aluminum plate. It has low strength and high ductility, making it easy to form and bend.||The 5052-o aluminum sheet is commonly used when extreme formability is required, such as in deep drawing applications, cooking utensils, and intricate shapes where strength is less important.|
|aluminum sheet 5052 h32||The H32 temper is strain-hardened and stabilized, resulting in increased strength and moderate formability. It has a higher strength compared to the O temper but lower than the H34 and H36 tempers.||5052-h32 aluminum sheet is frequently used for general sheet metal work, including exterior building panels, truck/trailer bodies, and marine components.|
|5052-h34 aluminum sheet||The H34 temper provides higher strength and improved corrosion resistance compared to the H32 temper. It has undergone a strain-hardening and stabilization process.||H34 is commonly used in marine and saltwater environments, as well as for structural components, tank trailers, and chemical processing equipment.|
|5052 h36 aluminum sheet||The H36 temper offers higher strength and hardness compared to H34.||H36 is often used in applications that require greater strength and rigidity, such as shipbuilding, automotive parts, and pressure vessels.|
|5052 h38 aluminum sheet||The H38 temper provides the highest strength and hardness among the mentioned tempers. It has the highest levels of strain-hardening and stabilization.||H38 is suitable for applications where maximum strength is required, such as heavy-duty structures, aerospace components, and military equipment.|

5052 aluminum sheet price
As a 5052 aluminum sheet suppliers and 5052 aluminium sheet factory in China, the price of the aluminum alloy sheet 5052 we provide is not fixed and will be affected by many factors.
Market demand: The demand for 5052 aluminium sheet can fluctuate based on various factors such as the overall demand for aluminum products, the availability of other types of aluminum, and the economic conditions of the region where it is being sold.
Alloy composition: The specific alloy composition of the 5052 aluminum sheet can also affect its price.
Thickness: The thickness of the sheet can also impact the price, with thicker sheets typically costing more due to the additional processing required.
Surface treatment: The cost of surface treatments such as painting, anodizing, and powder coating can also add to the price of the sheet.
Quantity and order size: Larger quantities of 5052 aluminum sheet can often be purchased at a lower cost per unit due to bulk pricing discounts.
Nevertheless, for our clients, 5052 aluminum sheet for sale is offered at the lowest price.
How to measure 5052 aluminium sheet weight?
To calculate the weight of a piece of 5052 aluminum sheet, you will need to know the dimensions of the sheet (length, width, and thickness) and the density of the material. Here is the formula to calculate the weight:
Weight (in pounds) = Length (inches) x Width (inches) x Thickness (inches) x Density (in pounds per cubic inch)
The density of 5052 aluminum is approximately 0.0975 pounds per cubic inch, or 2.68 grams per cubic centimeter.
For example, let’s say you have a 5052 aluminum sheet that is 48 inches long, 24 inches wide, and 0.125 inches thick. To calculate the weight of this sheet, you would use the following formula:
Weight = 48 x 24 x 0.125 x 0.0975 = 44.1 pounds
Calculated according to this method, the weight of a 4×8 5052 aluminium sheet weight is 3,595.68 pounds or 1,631.45 kilograms.
So, the weight of this piece of aluminum 5052 sheet is approximately 44.1 pounds.
Note: This is an approximation and the actual weight may vary slightly depending on the specific alloy composition and manufacturing process used.
