Common 5086 Aluminum Sheet Standards

An alloy’s temper refers to the hardening it undergoes to achieve specific mechanical properties. The most popular temper of aluminum 5086 sheet is H32. Other grades include:

  • O
  • H32
  • H34
  • H112
  • H116

O represents the softest temper, while H116 is the hardest. Dimensions vary based on the specific temper you need.
