What is 5052 aluminum circle

5052 aluminum circles are AL-Mg alloy aluminum circles. Magnesium is the main alloy element in the 5052 alloy aluminum circle and is the most widely used anti-rust aluminum. Among non-heat treatable alloys, 5052 is considered one of the strongest options.

What is 5052 aluminum circle

5052 aluminum circle has high strength, especially fatigue resistance: high plasticity and corrosion resistance, cannot be strengthened by heat treatment, good plasticity during semi-cold work hardening, low plasticity during cold work hardening, good corrosion resistance, good weldability, and can Poor cutting performance, can be polished. Mainly used in lamps, kitchenware, electronic and electrical casings, traffic signs, etc.

5052 aluminum alloy chemical composition

Alloy Si Fe Cu Mn Mg Cr Zn Ti Others-Each Others Total Al
5052 0.25 0.40 0.10 0.10 2.2-2.8 0.15-0.35 0.10 0.05 0.15 Remainder

The magnesium content of 5052 aluminum circles is 2.2-2.8%, so the density is only 2.68. The weight of 5052 alloy aluminum circles is the lightest alloy number among the entire 5000 series aluminum alloys.

5052 aluminum alloy also contains small amounts of manganese, chromium, beryllium, titanium, etc. Except for a small amount of manganese in the alloy, most of it forms MnAl6. The role of chromium in 5052 aluminum circles is similar to that of manganese. It improves resistance to stress corrosion cracking, increases the strength of the base metal and welds, and reduces the tendency of welding cracks, but its content generally does not exceed 0.35%.

What is the difference between 3003 and 5052 aluminum?

5052 aluminum plate and 3003 aluminum plate are the most common alloy aluminum plates on the market. Now we take 3003 H24 aluminum plate and 5052 H32 aluminum plate as examples to popularize knowledge in this area. ​

1. Chemical composition: 3003 aluminum plate is an aluminum-manganese alloy, and the main alloying element is manganese. 5052 aluminum plate is an aluminum-magnesium alloy, and the main alloying element is magnesium. The aluminum content of 3003 aluminum plate is slightly higher than that of 5052 aluminum plate.

2. Mechanical properties: 3003 H24 aluminum plate is an aluminum-manganese alloy, and the main alloying element is manganese. The tensile strength of 3003 H24 aluminum plate is 145-195Rm/MPa, while the tensile strength of 5052 H34 aluminum plate is 230-280Rm/MPa, which is much higher than that of 3003 H24 aluminum plate; the elongation strength of 3003 H24 aluminum plate is 115Rm/MPa, while the elongation strength of 5052 H34 aluminum plate is 150Rm/MPa. Therefore, the performance of 5052 aluminum plate is significantly better than that of 3003 aluminum plate. ​

3. Specifications: 3003 H14 aluminum plates are mainly thin plates, and thick plates are not widely used; while 5052 aluminum plates are also widely used in addition to thin plates and thick plates. ​

4. Use: 3003 aluminum plates are mainly used in humid environments, such as product packaging, refrigerators, air conditioners, cold storages, ventilation ducts, etc. 5052 aluminum plates are often used in electrical enclosures, transportation vehicles, pressure vessels, etc. Commonly used material in the manufacture of automobile and aircraft fuel tanks and fuel pipes.

5. Aluminum plate price: The price of 3003 aluminum plate is slightly higher than that of pure aluminum plate, while the price of 5052 aluminum plate is significantly higher than that of 3003 aluminum plate. Depending on the specifications and thickness, the price of a ton of 5052 aluminum plates is higher than the price of a ton of 3003 aluminum plates.

Can 5052 aluminum circle/disc be anodized?

Anodized aluminum circles are widely used in many projects. Anodized aluminum circles are suitable for hot rolled materials (DC materials). 5052 alloy aluminum circle is a hot-rolled material (DC material), so it is of good quality and suitable for anodizing.

The anodizing effect of 5052 aluminum circle is very good, and it can also be anodized into different colors, such as black, red, blue, etc. The oxide film will protect the aluminum circle, extend its service life, and make the aluminum alloy product more beautiful.

Casting production process and its introduction

The purpose of melting and casting is to produce alloys with satisfactory composition and high purity of melt, so as to create favorable conditions for casting alloys of various shapes.

Melting and casting process steps: batching --- feeding --- melting --- stirring after melting, slag removal --- pre-analysis sampling --- adding alloy to adjust the composition, stirring --- refining --- static Setting——Guide furnace casting.

Hot rolling production process and its introduction

  • 1. Hot rolling generally refers to rolling above the metal recrystallization temperature;
  • 2. During the hot rolling process, the metal has both hardening and softening processes. Due to the influence of deformation speed, as long as the recovery and recrystallization process is too late, there will be a certain work hardening;
  • 3. The recrystallization of the metal after hot rolling is incomplete, that is, the coexistence of recrystallized structure and deformed structure;
  • 4. Hot rolling can improve the processing performance of metals and alloys, reduce or eliminate casting defects.
    • Hot rolling equipment

      Casting and rolling process

      Casting and rolling process: liquid metal, front box (liquid level control), casting and rolling machine (lubrication system, cooling water), shearing machine, coiling machine.

      • 1. The casting and rolling temperature is generally between 680°C and 700°C. The lower the better, the stable casting and rolling line usually stops once a month or more to re-stand. During the production process, it is necessary to strictly control the liquid level of the front tank to prevent low liquid level;
      • 2. Lubrication uses C powder with incomplete combustion of gas for lubrication, which is also one of the reasons for the dirty surface of casting and rolling materials;
      • 3. The production speed is generally between 1.5m/min-2.5m/min;
      • 4. The surface quality of products produced by casting and rolling is generally relatively low, and generally cannot meet products with special physical and chemical performance requirements.
        • Cold rolling production process

          • 1. Cold rolling refers to the rolling production method below the recrystallization temperature;
          • 2. There will be no dynamic recrystallization during the rolling process, and the temperature will rise to the recovery temperature at most, and the cold rolling will appear in a work hardening state, and the work hardening rate will be large;
          • 3. The cold-rolled sheet and strip have high dimensional accuracy, good surface quality, uniform structure and performance, and products in various states can be obtained with heat treatment;
          • 4. Cold rolling can roll out thin strips, but at the same time, it has the disadvantages of high energy consumption for deformation and many processing passes.
            • Casting rolling

              Introduction to finishing production process

              • 1. Finishing is a processing method to make the cold-rolled sheet meet the customer's requirements, or to facilitate the subsequent processing of the product;
              • 2. The finishing equipment can correct the defects produced in the hot rolling and cold rolling production process, such as cracked edge, oily, poor plate shape, residual stress, etc. It needs to ensure that no other defects are brought into the production process;
              • 3. There are various finishing equipments, mainly including cross-cutting, slitting, stretching and straightening, annealing furnace, slitter, etc.
