5083 Aluminum Coil

Because of its superior corrosion resistance, 5083 aluminum coil is prevalent in applications that need high protection in harsh environments — including components for the marine and automotive industries. Since many aluminum 5083 coil tempers possess low density and high tensile strength, this alloy is perfect for manufacturing operations requiring durable materials for lightweight construction. In addition, 5083 aluminum is compatible with most metal fabrication and welding techniques.

  • O

Available thicknesses and sizes vary according to tempers. Our experts can help you choose the most practical temper and size based on your requirements.

More About Aluminum 5083 Coil

Discover more details about 5083 aluminum coil.


Of all the aluminum alloys that are not heat-treatable, 5083 ranks among the strongest. It offers decent formability in softer tempers, and its superior corrosion resistance makes it a practical choice in shipbuilding and other marine applications.


Aside from its inability to be heat-treated, the main drawback of 5083 aluminum coil is that it can undergo potential cracking in extremely high-pressure applications.


The many advantages of 5083 aluminum coil make it an excellent choice for many industries, including marine, automotive and armor. Specific industrial applications include:

  • Shipbuilding
  • Railcars
  • Pressure vessels
  • Vehicle bodies
  • Mineshaft skips
  • Storage tanks
  • Body armor


Although fabricators can easily cut and drill most 5083 aluminum tempers, the harder grades are not ideal for most machining operations.

Heat Treatment

5083 aluminum coil is not treatable with heat.


Aluminum 5083 coil is suitable for most welding applications. It responds exceptionally well to arc welding methods.

5083 Aluminum Coil Chemical Properties

The majority of 5083 coil aluminum’s chemical composition consists of pure aluminum. Minor traces of several other elements are present, including:

0.40% 0.10% 0.40% 4.0-4.9% 0.40-1.0% 0.15% 0.25% 0.05-0.10%

Percentages can vary slightly by temper.

Mechanical Properties of 5083 Aluminum Alloy Coil

Mechanical properties for aluminum 5083 coil differ according to the specific temper. Tensile strength ranges from 275 megapascals (MPa) for softer tempers to over 300 MPa for stronger tempers. Hardness varies from 75 HB to 90 HB according to the Brinell scale.
