Our 5052 series aluminum is one of the most versatile grades of aluminum you can get. It welds beautifully, bends cleanly, and has excellent machinability.
If you’re looking for a material that is light, strong, easy to work with, and resists the elements, you’ve found it. This is our favorite metal for prototypes, and… it looks great in any finish.
Our aluminum is laser-cut using high-purity nitrogen to give you a reduced oxide, semi-clean edge. Using nitrogen as an assist gas reduces oxides that can form during the cutting process, so your parts are easier to paint, powder coat or weld without additional processing such as grinding or sanding.
Laser-cut aluminum will have a bit of dross (burr) buildup on the underside of your part(s). This is a normal occurrence from the cutting process. Due to manufacturing variables, your parts may also have small cosmetic imperfections/scratches. If you require a cosmetically-perfect finish, additional processing is available.
