5083 Aluminum

5083 aluminum has a higher strength and thermal conductivity when compared with 5052. It has the ability to be hardened by cold work, and is very suitable for welding applications. It is also made to withstand extremely low temperatures without losing it's properties. Common uses for 5083 aluminum include dump bodies, ship building, and pressure vessels.
