Aluminium 5754


Aluminium 5754 has excellent corrosion resistance especially to seawater and industrially polluted atmospheres. It has higher strength than 5251. This high strength makes 5754 highly suited to flooring applications.


This material is used for food processing, rivets, fishing industry equipment, welded chemical and nuclear structures, shipbuilding, vehicle bodies and treadplate.

Alloy Designations

Alloy 5754 also corresponds to: A95754, Al Mg3, Al 3.1Mg Mn Cr and AW-5754.

Temper Types

The most common tempers for 5754 aluminium are:

  • H111 - Some work hardening imparted by shaping processes
  • H22 - Work hardened by rolling then annealed to quarter hard
  • H24 - Work hardened by rolling then annealed to half hard
  • H26 - Work hardened by rolling than annealed to three quarter hard
  • 0 - Soft.


  • Weldability - Gas: Excellent
