5052 Aluminium Tube

Medium strength aluminium tube.

5052 aluminium tube is a medium strength product with medium to high fatigue strength.

5052 medium-strength aluminium tube offers greater strength than 5251 & 3003 alloys.

5052 aluminium tube is a medium strength product with medium to high fatigue strength. The alloy offers slightly better strength than 5251 aluminium alloy. The product is a non-heat-treatable aluminium alloy but may be hardened by cold working. Our tubes are easily formed and welded, and the alloy finds use in various aerospace and offshore industries. Our 5052 aluminium tubes offer slightly improved corrosion resistance when compared to 1200 alloys. Our material is not susceptible to stress corrosion cracking (SSC), unlike other aluminium alloys with a manganese content greater than 3.5%.

Stock Availability

We have available 5052 aluminium tubes in a wide range of sizes and TO temper.

The Marine Sector

5052 aluminium tubes are commonly used throughout the marine sector in structures, fuel lines, heat exchangers and tanks. The alloy is a good choice for chlorine, wastewater and saltwater environments and is regarded as one of the best welding aluminiums. From above-sea to sub-sea applications, 5052 tubing offers an engineering material alternative which promotes a good strength to weight ratio.
