Its tensile strength is higher than some low-carbon mild steel and it has strong resistance to sea water and ocean climate corrosion, and good welding performance. It is often used in marine engineering such as large cruise ships.
1. Its low density, high strength, high rigidity and corrosion resistance enable aluminum ships to reduce their weight by 20% compared with ships made of steel or other metal alloys.
2. The high toughness, corrosion resistance and weldability of 5059 marine aluminum plate provide the possibility for strict ship-type production. At the same time, the marine aluminum sheet can resist the corrosion of the atmosphere, steam, water and other media in the ocean climate for a longer time.
