Starting from $29

Used in a wide variety of projects, ranging from submerged natural gas tanks to simple rivets, our 5052 h32 aluminum has become essential in the metal-working industry. It’s also a favorite of our customers.

We source this high-demand metal through trustworthy suppliers with verifiable industry credentials so you don’t have to worry about it. You’ll know that our 5052 aluminum sheets are ready to be transformed into your greatest ideas.

We want to get your 5052 designs made on time, on budget, and at quality standards. Because that’s what we like to do.

Lightweight
Rust Free
Good Machinability

5052 Aluminum is strong, inexpensive, and lightweight

Whether you’re welding, machining, or bending, 5052 is going to be the go-to material for your first-run prototypes and for those projects that need excellent elemental resistance. It’s also exceptionally lightweight, making it perfect for projects where overall load is a concern.

Boasting high relative ultimate strength (and fatigue strength), 5052 aluminum has a dizzying number of practical usages. And on the subject of strength, it’s worth noting that this metal is non-heat treatable, which means that it is cold-worked to achieve its moderate-to-high strength properties. Don’t worry, though, it’s actually the strongest non-heat-treatable plate on the market, so you’re in the right place.
