5052-0 has the highest strength alloy of the more common non heat treatable grades. Fatigue strength is higher than most aluminum alloys, in addition to good resistance to marine atmoshpere and salt water corrosion. Has excellent workability which may be drawn or formed into intricate shapes. Its slightly greater strength in the annealed condition minimizes tearing that occurs in 3003. Can be deep drawn or spun, welded or brazed. Most always used for fuel and hydraulic lines. Tubing comes in 12 ft lengths,but can be cut to size, the 1/8 through 1/4 may be rolled for UPS shipping, however each rolling work hardens the tubings. Rolled tubing may NOT be returned. 8 ft maximum length shipped UPS, 5 ft or longer charged additional handling by UPS.
