With excellent corrosion resistance and welding performance, the 5 series is widely applied in marine, automotive, railway transportation, oil and chemical industries, etc. Typically such as 5083, 5182, and 5454 Aluminum plates are applicable for oil tank bodies.
With the same area as other series, the weight of the Oil Tanker Aluminum Plate is lighter. As a result, it is used in aviation, such as in fuel tanks in airplanes. The main ingredient of this series Oil Tanker Aluminum Plate is magnesium element and the content is between 3% and 5%. It is also called aluminum magnesium alloy. The Oil Tanker Aluminum Plate can be used in continuous casting and rolling. As a result, it can be used in oxidation and deep processing. All these superior properties make 5xxx the most suitable alloy for oil tankers.
