3003aluminum sheet and 5052 aluminum sheet are widely used on the market. Their production and market demand yearly are huge. 3003 aluminum sheet is on behalf of series 3 while 5052 aluminum sheet is the representative of series 5, but many people are not very clear about the difference between these two kinds of aluminum, Mingtai Aluminum as a domestic leader in aluminum will popularize the difference between them:
1. In the chemical composition, 3003 aluminum sheet is Al-Mn alloy, and the main alloying element is manganese. 5052 aluminum sheet is Al-Mg alloy, and the main alloying element is magnesium. The aluminum content of the 3003 aluminum sheet is a little more than that of the 5052 aluminum sheet.
2.From the mechanical properties, the tensile strength of 3003H24 aluminum sheet in 145-195Rm/MPa, while the tensile strength of 5052H24 aluminum sheet is up to 230-280Rm/MPa, which is much higher than that of 3003H24 aluminum sheet; The yield strength of 3003H24 aluminum sheet is 115Rm/MPa, and the yield strength of 5052H24 aluminum sheet is 150Rm/MPa. Therefore, the performance of the 5052 aluminum sheet should be better than the 3003 aluminum sheet.
3. From commonly used specifications, 3003 aluminum sheet is mainly used in the plate, and the application of the thick plate is not much, while 5052 aluminum sheet is widely used both in thin plate and thick plate.
