In the existing 8 brands of aluminum alloys , 3000 series and 5000 series are two series which has more extensive application industry and higher aluminium plate price. The 3000 series aluminum plate is also called aluminum manganese alloy, the main grade is 3003 aluminum. The 5 series aluminum plate is also called aluminum magnesium alloy, the main grades are 5052, 5083, 5086, 5454 and 5754 aluminum alloy. As the two largest aluminum series with the largest usage, what are the specific differences between Al-Mn alloy and Al-Mg alloy? Why the two series aluminum alloy have higher price than 1000 series pure aluminum?
The 3000 series Al-Mn alloy aluminum plate has good rust resistance, good formability, high corrosion resistance and high strength. The 5000 series Al-Mg alloy aluminium plate has the advantages of light weight, high strength, corrosion resistance, easy to coloring, low density, good heat dissipation and strong compression resistance. It can fully meet the requirements of highly integrated, lightweight, miniaturization, anti knock and electromagnetic shielding and heat dissipation. In practical applications, 3000 series aluminum plates are mainly used in many occasions, such as insulation and anti-skid construction, such as pipe and cold storage. The 5000 series aluminum plates are more used in the manufacturing industry, such as ships, cars, radiators and so on. The use is more widely and more commonly. For example, 5052 aluminum plate price is higher than 3003 aluminum sheet because of the specification and usage.
