5083 Aluminum Forging Tube/tube

Last Updated: 2023-04-27

Aluminum 5083, the strongest of the non-heat-treatable alloys, is made from the finest grade raw material available while remaining a cost-effective choice. It maintains good formability in the tempered condition, and takes welding and cold working well. Due to its excellent thermal conductivity, resistance to corrosion, and ability to withstand low temperatures, this alloy is best suited for marine and cryogenic applications. It is not recommended for use in temperatures above 65ºC.


Aluminum 5083 is a non-heat treatable alloy known for its resistance to extreme environments, including seawater corrosion and industrial chemicals. While featuring limited machinability due to its exceptional strength, AL 5083 is the material of choice for marine and aquatic applications, and is typically used in shipbuilding. Other uses for this alloy include transportation applications such as rail, truck, and vehicle bodies, as well as pressure vessels and food processors. Aluminum 5083 is composed mainly of aluminum, magnesium and manganese and standard specifications include AMS 4057, AMS 4058, ASTM B210 and more.
