5005 - H34 Sheet

Aluminium alloy 5005 is a medium strength alloy with very good resistance to atmospheric corrosion and very good weldability that is highly suitable for decorative anodising. PLEASE NOTE THAT WHILST ALLOY 5005 IS SUITABLE FOR ANODISING, STREAKS CAN OCCUR - IF THE FINISH YOU ARE SEEKING IS CRITICAL PLEASE SPECIFY 'SPECIAL ANODISING QUALITY' AT TIME OF ORDER.

Applications - Alloy 5005 is typically used for:
Buildings – Roofing, Cladding, Corrugated Sheet
Signage, Road Signs & Name Plates
Food & Chemical Equipment
Anodised Parts
HVAC Equipment
Pipe and Tube
Can Bodies
