Aluminum Alloy 5083, Bar, Rod, Shapes, Tube, and Wire, Extruded
|Publication Date:||1 November 2017|
This specification covers the specific requirements for aluminum alloy 5083 bar, rod, shapes, tube, and wire produced by extrusion.
Tempers: Bar, rod, shapes, tube, and wire are classified in the following tempers as specified (See 6.2): O, H111, or H112. Definitions of tempers are specified in AMS-QQ-A-200.
Tubing: Tubing shall be additionally classified as follows:
Type I - Tubing extruded from hollow billets using die and mandrel (See AMS-QQ-A-200).
Type II - Tubing extruded from solid billets using a porthole or spider die or similar tooling (See AMS-QQ-A-200).
This alloy is for use where a weldable, moderate strength alloy having good corrosion resistance is required.
