5083 sheet aluminum is one of the best-suited alloys for applications requiring a lightweight solution with high strength and strong corrosion resistance. This alloy works well with most automated and manual welding operations and is easily bendable for most machining applications.


Because of its versatility and high performance, 5083 sheet aluminum costs more than other popular alloys. However, its superior workability and durability quickly pay off over the life of a product. Another disadvantage of 5083 aluminum is that it’s not treatable with heat.


The many benefits of 5083 sheet aluminum make it a popular choice for many manufacturing and fabrication operations, including:

  • Railways
  • Automotive
  • Shipbuilding
  • Ballistics and armor
  • Aerospace
  • Telecommunications
  • Pressure vessels


While fabricators can efficiently cut, bore and drill most 5083 aluminum tempers, the harder grades are sometimes more challenging to machine.


5083 aluminum sheet offers high weld efficiency and excellent joint strength.
