What Are Alloys of Aluminium Plate for Tankers

Aluminum plate for tankers, with its unique advantages of low density, corrosion resistance, energy saving and environmental protection, is gradually used in large quantities in special vehicles and has become the main material for lightweighting. Tanks welded with high-quality and high-strength aluminum alloys have low overall weight and can reduce weight by 40% compared to carbon steel and stainless steel tanks.

5000 aluminum alloys have good processing and formability, corrosion resistance, welding performance, fatigue strength and moderate static strength. AA5454, 5083, 5754 and 5182 are currently commonly used tanker aluminum sheets.

As a common 5 series alloy, 5454 aluminum alloy is widely used in fuel tanks, tank truck bodies, marine facility pipelines, automobile wheels, etc. 5454 alloy aluminum plate has outstanding performance in various types of vehicles such as cars, trucks, and tank truck bodies. 5454 plates can be used in high temperature environments or transport high temperature liquids.

After proper heat treatment, 5454 aluminum alloy can achieve high strength and tensile properties, making it suitable for applications requiring high strength and lightweight. 5454 aluminum alloy has good plasticity and is easy to process and form. 5454 aluminum alloy has excellent welding properties and can be joined by common welding methods such as MIG welding, TIG welding and resistance welding.

5754 aluminum sheet can be used to make tank truck bodies and bulkheads, which can reduce the weight of tank trucks, increase load capacity, reduce fuel consumption, and reduce exhaust emissions. Moreover, 5754 aluminum plate has strong corrosion resistance and can greatly extend the service life of tank trucks. Therefore, it is favored by the tank truck manufacturing industry.

The magnesium content of 5754 aluminum plate is higher than that of 5052, so the machinability is better. The silicon content of 5754 aluminum plate is also higher than that of 5052. The silicon content affects the forging function and corrosion resistance of aluminum alloy, so the 5754 aluminum plate has better forging properties and corrosion resistance.

Both 5754 aluminum plate and 5083 aluminum plate are aluminum-magnesium alloys. The main difference between the two is the magnesium alloy content, hardness and elongation. The magnesium alloy content of 5754 aluminum plate is around 3%, and the magnesium alloy content of 5083 aluminum plate is as high as around 4.5%.

At the same time, the hardness of 5083 aluminum plate is higher than that of 5754 aluminum plate. Of course, the price of 5083 aluminum plate is also higher. Welcome to leave message below to learn more about aluminium 5754 properties.
