As the common aluminium alloy roll, 3003 and 5052 aluminium roll is widely used in the industries. But there are few people to acknowledge the differences between them.
1. Chemical composition, as the Al-Mn alloy, the main element of 3003 aluminium roll is Mn. As the Al-Mg alloy, the main element of 5052 aluminium roll is Mg. But the content of 3003 aluminium roll is more than 5052 Aluminium Sheet Roll.
2. Mechanical Property: The tensile strength of 3003 Aluminium Sheet Roll is 145-195Rm/MPa. 5052 aluminium roll tensile strength is 230-280Rm/MPa which is higher than 3003 aluminium roll. The Extension strength of 3003 is 115Rm/MPa，the extension strength of 5052 aluminium roll is 150Rm/MPa. The property of 5052 aluminium roll is better than 3003.
3. Different Application, 3003 aluminium roll is mainly used in the Humid environment, such as packaging, fridge, air conditioner, Cold storage and ventilation ducts, etc.. 5052 Aluminium Sheet Roll is widely used in Electric appliance shell, traffic vehicles, pressure vessels, etc.
4. Different Cost: The price of 3003 Aluminium Sheet Roll is higher than pure aluminium. But the price of 5052 aluminium roll is higher than 3003.
5. 3003 and 5052 aluminium roll is often used as the Antirust aluminium, but there are some obvious distinguish.
