5052 H32 and H34 Aluminum Sheet

When it comes to aluminum sheets, 5052 aluminum alloy is a popular choice thanks to its excellent corrosion resistance, good formability, and impressive strength-to-weight ratio. But which temper, or hardness level, is best for your specific needs? The answer may lie in the H32 and H34 tempers.

5052 H32 and H34 aluminum sheet are both strain-hardened, or “work-hardened,” temper types, which means they are strengthened by cold working or shaping the metal. H32 and H34 differ primarily in their degree of strain hardening, with H34 being slightly harder and stronger than H32.

If you need a sheet with higher tensile strength and improved resistance to cracking and fracture, H34 may be the better choice. On the other hand, H32 may be preferable if you require better flexibility and formability without sacrificing durability.

Both tempers have similar chemical compositions and are suitable for a wide range of applications, such as marine components, automotive parts, and architectural applications. They can be easily welded, machined, and formed using standard techniques.

At Mingtai Aluminum, we offer 5052 H32 and H34 aluminum sheet in a variety of sizes and thicknesses to meet your specific requirements. Our sheets are produced using the latest technology and rigorous quality control measures to ensure optimal performance and reliability.

The key properties of 5052 H32 and H34 aluminum sheet include:

•Low weight and density. 5052 aluminum is a lightweight metal with a density of only 2.68 g/cm3.

•High strength and durability. Both H32 and H34 tempers provide significantly higher strength than annealed 5052. H34, in particular, can reach up to 60% higher strength.

•Excellent formability and weldability. 5052 aluminum sheet can be easily formed into desired shapes through processes like bending, stamping, and cold working. It can also be readily welded using methods like gas welding, arc welding, and brazing.

•Good corrosion resistance. The alloying ingredients like magnesium and chromium provide good resistance to corrosion from weather, moisture, and chemicals. The H32 temper has slightly better corrosion resistance due to less cold working.

•Machine finish. 5052 H32 and H34 aluminum sheets feature a smooth, semi-specular machine finish. They can also be produced in various finishes per customer needs.

In summary, 5052 H32 aluminum sheet and 5052 H34 aluminum sheets are highly versatile materials adaptable to a wide range of applications where lightweight, formability, weldability, durability, and good corrosion resistance are required. Their key properties make them suitable and cost-effective solutions for many industrial needs
