Common 5182 Aluminum Sheet Metal Standards

An alloy’s temper refers to its hardness. Aluminum 5182 is available in various tempers, from F to H ratings. F temper alloys are fabricated, while O tempers are made from an annealed metal. When H is used to describe the temper, it means the material is not heat treatable.

The available tempers for 5182 aluminum include:

  • F
  • O
  • H111
  • H112
  • H12
  • H14
  • H16
  • H18
  • H22
  • H24
  • H26
  • H32
  • H34
  • H38

An F temper means the alloy is fabricated, or semi-finished while an O temper means the metal is annealed. O temper aluminum 3004 typically has a lower strength than other tempers. H tempers are strain-hardened and are usually not heat-treatable.

In addition to a range of tempers, 3004 aluminum sheet metal is available in several thicknesses and dimensions.

More Details About 3004 Aluminum Sheet

Here is more information about aluminum 3004 sheet metal.

Along with 3003, 3004 aluminum is a widely used alloy. Some of the benefits of the alloy include:

  • Excellent weldability
  • High strength
  • Good corrosion resistance

Aluminum 3004 may not be right for all applications. A couple of its disadvantages are that it’s not heat treatable, and it has poor machinability.

The mechanical properties, such as hardness and shear strength, of aluminum 3004 vary based on the metal’s temper. We can help you choose the right temper based on the mechanical needs of your project.

Frequently Asked Questions

We get asked many questions about aluminum 3004. Below are the answers to the most commonly asked questions, but we’re happy to answer any additional ones you have.

The automotive industry often uses aluminum sheet 3004. Common uses for the metal include piping for heating and cooling systems, brackets and other components.

You can anodize aluminum 3004. However, some aluminum alloys react better to the anodization process. Since 3004 contains the element manganese, there is a risk of discoloration during anodization.
