5052 is a non-heat-treatable aluminum alloy known for its durability. Cold working increases its strength. It contains magnesium for excellent service under severely corrosive conditions. 5052 is especially resistant to marine atmosphere and salt water corrosion. Often used for marine and chemical industry application.
