5086 Aluminum Sheet
Alloy 5086 aluminum sheet have even higher strength than 5052 or 5083 and its mechanical properties vary significantly with hardening and temperature. It is not strengthened by heat treatment; instead, it becomes stronger due to strain hardening or cold working of the material. This alloy can be readily welded, retaining most of its mechanical strength. The good results with welding and good corrosion properties in seawater make Alloy 5086 extremely popular in marine applications. 5086 aluminum sheet has been used in vehicle armor plate due to its high strength factor.
Applications of 5086 Aluminum Sheet:
- Tank cars
- Welded and superstructures
- Patrol and work boat hulls
- Armor plate
