5052 Aluminum Plate & Sheet

Aluminum sheet metal comes in a variety of thickness and grades that can be used for manufacturing automobile parts, cookware and appliances parts, boat hulls, fuel tanks and roofing solutions.

One of the most popular grades of aluminum sheet metal is 5052 Aluminum. It is primarily alloyed with magnesium and chromium. 5052 Aluminum is stronger and more corrosion resistant than many other grades. It has excellent workability. 5052 Aluminum is used for making heat exchangers, rivets and wires, pressure vessels, chemical drums, flooring panels and treadplate.

Bayou Metal Supply offers 5052 aluminum in various forms including 5052 aluminum sheets and plates. Our state-of-the-art facility is outfitted with advanced machinery designed to slice and cut materials into custom shapes. Our high-precision CNC routers help reduce waste and improve process efficiency.

We are committed to helping our customers save time and money. To save our customers the trouble of cutting and shaping materials at their facilities, we offer a wide array of plate sawing, CNC machining, metal bending, friction stir welding and speciality metal shearing services under one roof.
