SPECIALITY ALLOYS

5XXX Series Aluminum Alloy

Introduction

The 5xxx series are aluminum-magnesium alloys that have moderate to high strength, non-heat treatable alloys that are strain hardenable, readily weldable and have excellent resistance to corrosion even in salt water, and are very tough even at cryogenic temperatures to almost absolute zero.

Application

Architectural  applications,  Signage, Marine  application,  Rivets,  Hanger, Welding rod, Core pulling nails, Hollow nails, Cowboy buttons, Strainers, Cable armouring, Zip Manufacturing..etc
