Aluminium 5005


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 the time of order.


Alloy 5005 is typically used for:

  • Building - roofing, cladding & corrugated sheet
  • Signage, road signs & name plates
  • Food & chemical equipment
  • Furniture
  • Anodised Parts
  • HVAC Equipment
  • Packaging
  • Pipe and Tube
  • Can Bodies

Supplied Forms

  • Sheet

Temper Types

The most common tempers for 5005 aluminium are: H34 - Stabilised - A low temperature thermal treatment or heat introduced during manufacture which stabilises the mechanical properties and relieves residual internal stress, plus usually improves ductility
