Aluminum sheet for boat building

Marine Aluminum Plates ometimes also called as aluminum ship plate, it is best aluminum for marine applications.

It is the low density and light weight of aluminum, which reduces the weight of aluminum ship plates by 20% compared with steel or other alloy materials. This can not only reduce the weight of the ship, but also reduce energy consumption and protect the marine environment. Second, the aluminum ship plate has high toughness, good corrosion resistance and weldability. It is because of these excellent properties that ships plate made of aluminum can withstand the complex Marine environment for a longer time, be durable and more economical.

Marine-grade aluminum is specifically developed to make it ideal for use in marine environments. As such, it possesses a number of properties required in these applications. Some of these properties include:

1.Superior corrosion resistance
2.Lightweight with a high strength-to-weight ratio
3.Compatibility with a variety of fabrication processes
4.Wide availability in sheets, extrusions, and plates

MC Aluminum specializes in marine grade alloys. Whether you are building Fast Ferries, Navy or passenger ships, yachts, or small pleasure craft we maintain a large inventory of sheets, plates and extrusions in 5083, 5086, 5454, 5052 and 5456 alloys to meet your needs.

5083. 5083 marine-grade aluminum is ideal for applications that need superlative corrosion resistance in hostile environments. 5083 is the strongest non-heat treatable aluminum alloy and maintains its strength even after welding.

5086. This alloy is highly conductive with superior corrosion resistance. 5086 can be strengthened through strain hardening and cold working until it is even stronger than in 5083. Though compatible with multiple welding methods, electric arc welding is preferred for this alloy.

5454. The beneficial properties of 5454 include high strength, superior corrosion resistance, and good formability and weldability.

5456. Widely used for structural applications, 5456 is well-suited to the extrusion process. It is also amenable to forming operations like rolling and forging. 5456 can be made stronger through cold working, but the process reduces its ductility.

5754. Its superior resistance to corrosion makes 5754 very suitable for the marine industry and other industrial applications possessing corrosive operating environments. It is also suitable for flooring applications due to its high strength.
