Aluminium Alloy 5005 is a medium strength, Aluminium magnesium, wrought alloy with good resistance to atmospheric corrosion. It can attain moderate to high strength by cold working and has relatively high welded strength compared to other Aluminium Alloys.
Applications of Aluminium Alloy 5005
Aluminium alloy is widely used for Anodized parts, manufacture of appliances, small boats, signage, road signs and name plates, Food and chemical equipments, Packaging, Architectural components and facades, Furniture components and Mashrabiya / Screens
Importance of Anodized Quality
Aluminium Alloy sheets in AA 5005 is a natural choice where the material will be anodized and used in Architectural applications, flashings, curtain walls etc. Anodizing is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish. 5005 AQ alloy is formulated for a decorative architectural anodized finish. It allows for a more uniform and attractive anodized finish than other alloys.
If your requirement is of a finish to be attractive and consistent then usage of AQ 5005 is of utmost importance. Using not fit for purpose alloys such as 3003 or 3105 or even non AQ 5005 will show imperfections such as structural streaks, cloudiness, blemishes, and extreme color variations. The image below shows the difference in surface finish of Alloy AA 5005, one which is AQ and other which is not.
