5xxx Series Aluminium Sheet Metal for Fuel Tank

5xxx series aluminium sheet metal is a kind of commonly used aluminum alloy series. The main element been mainly added is magnesium, its content is between 3-5%, so 5xxx series aluminium sheet metal can also be called aluminum-magnesium alloy. Its representative alloys are 5052 aluminum, 5005 aluminum, 5083 aluminum, 5A03 aluminum, 5A06 aluminum and so on.
Haomei aluminum’s engineering technology is the continuous casting and rolling, it belongs to hot-rolled aluminum that it can be oxide processed. It is commonly used in aviation, such as car fuel tanks, airplane fuel tanks and other situations. In China 5 series aluminum is one of the mature aluminum series. And it is also widely used in the conventional industrial manufacturing applications.Automotive fuel tank material commonly uses the 5-series aluminum such as 5052 aluminum and 5754 aluminum. Haomei 5052 aluminium sheet metal is the most widely used kind of rust-proof aluminum. It has the high strength and high corrosion resistance, can be also polished; 5xxx series aluminium sheet metal has the moderate strength, good corrosion resistance, well weldability and it is easy processing forming characteristics. They are the typical alloys in Al-Mg alloys.
Haomei Aluminum’s 5xxx series aluminum’s main features are low density, high tensile strength, high elongation. In the same area the weight of aluminum-magnesium alloy is lower than other alloy series. Different temper sheets are the main materials in the automotive industry (car doors, fuel tanks, seals), and also in the canning industry.
In addition, Haomei 5083 aluminium sheet metal is preferable for tank manufacturing, it has high strength, and after the heat-treatment the alloy would have good process ability, corrosion resistance and weldability. But for its complex processing procedures, its technical requirements are higher. Thus the price is relatively high. It has been widely used in transportation vehicles, such as ships, aircraft, vehicles and pressure vessels (tankers, refrigerated trucks, and refrigerated containers) and the like. Superior high performance in Haomei aluminium sheet metal and plate make our plate an idea material for many oil tanks, storage tank and other equipments.
