1100 is commercially pure aluminum (99.00% minimum). Excellent corrosion resistance, workability and weldability; high thermal conductivity. Tensile strength range 14 to 24 KSI. Uses include deep drawing, spinning, sheet metal work, decorative and architectural applications, air ducts, name plates, fan blades, etc. Conforms to AMS QQ-A-250/1 and ASTM B209.
3003 is alloyed with 1.2% manganese to provide a tensile strength range of 17 to 30 KSI. Excellent workability, weldability, and corrosion resistance. Used for drawing, spinning, fuel tanks, sheet metal work and other applications where slightly higher strength than 1100 is required. Conforms to AMS QQ-A-250/2 and ASTM B209.
5005 is alloyed with .8% magnesium. Tensile strength range is 18 to 30 KSI. Excellent workability, weldability, and corrosion resistance. Specified for applications comparable to 1100 and 3003 – where anodizing is required. Anodized finish matches that of architectural alloy 6063. Conforms to Federal specifications ASTM B209.
5052 is alloyed with 2.5% magnesium. Tensile strength range 31 to 44 KSI. Very good corrosion resistance, good workability, weldabilty and strength. Used for aircraft fuel tanks, storm shutters, refrigerator liners, utensils, electronic mounting plates and panels, fan blades, etc. Conforms to AMS QQ-A-250/8 and ASTM B209.
5083 is alloyed with 4.45% magnesium, 0.65% manganese and 0.15% chromium. Tensile strength range: 40 to 59 KSI. For use in structures requiring high weld efficiency for maximum joint strength — plus light weight and corrosion resistance. Applications: marine components, truck bodies, construction equipment, tanks, structural towers, drilling rigs, cryogenic applications, etc. Conforms to ASTM B209 and AMS QQ-A-250/6.
5086 is alloyed with 4.0% magnesium, .45% manganese and 0.15% chromium. This alloy has a typical tensile strength range of 40 to 54 KSI. It offers resistance to stress corrosion and superior resistance to atmospheric corrosion plus good general workability. Applications include tanks (stationary, trailer and rail-car), marine components and welded assemblies of all kinds. Conforms to AMS QQ-A-250/7 and ASTM B209.
