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.

Minimum Hole Size

To ensure the best quality for your parts, we recommend no less than 50% material thickness for all holes. See the images below for more detail. The largest hole is 70% material thickness. Each hole decresases in size by 10%.
