5083 aluminum sheet/sheet

5083 Aluminum Sheet & Plate has exceptional thermal conductivity and higher strength than 5052. It is highly resistant to attack by seawater and industrial chemicals and is very suitable for welding. 5083 retains exceptional strength after welding and is easily formed.


5083 is commonly used in marine applications because of its corrosion resistance. It is capable of withstanding extremely low temperatures without brittleness or loss of properties, it is especially suited to the cryogenic market. 5083 is also commonly used for LNG ship construction, storage tanks, high strength welded structures, armor sheet, drill rigs and pressure vessels and rail cars. Some industries served include oil & gas, military, commercial and recreational marine, chemical plant and industrial containment vessels.


Machinability for 5083 is considered poor for this alloy. 




5083 is readily weldable using arch and resistance techniques.

Heat Treatment

5083 is not heat treatable.
