Aluminum

Cascadia Metals supplies Grade 5052 Aluminum to the metals marketplace. Aluminum is a silvery-white, soft, nonmagnetic, ductile metal and is the most widely used non-ferrous metal in the world.

Grade 5052 Aluminum is comprised of 97.25% aluminum, 2.5% magnesium and 0.25% chromium.  When magnesium is used as the major alloying element, the result is a moderate to high strength non-heat treatable aluminum alloy.  5052 is far stronger than the 1100 or 3000 series aluminums, yet forms with reasonable bend radii.   Weldability is very good and 5052 has good resistance to corrosion, especially in salt-water / marine atmospheres.

Benefits

Light Weight – trim weight and possibly cost

Corrosion Resistance – superior, especially in salt-water and marine atmospheres

Aesthetics – contemporary, authentic and natural

Conductivity – ideal for use where heat is involved

Workability – easily machined, formed, welded and forged

Our Grade 5052 Aluminum meets ASTM B209 requirements.

So you can rest assured the aluminum we provide will meet all standard specifications per ASTM.

End-Use Applications

5052 is widely used for cooking utensils, food processing equipment, storage tanks, truck and trailer components, mail boxes, aircraft components, electronic chassis, boat hulls, deck houses, hatch covers, pressure vessels, ladders, railings, frames, drip pans, tool boxes, truck bumpers, inner and outer body panels and components in truck and auto industries, kitchen equipment,  decorative trim, architectural uses, signage applications, and any number of parts and application requiring strength and good formability at reasonable cost.
