Aluminum 5086-H116; 5086-H32
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Aluminum Alloy; 5000 Series Aluminum Alloy

Material Notes: This alloy has very good corrosion resistance (susceptible to deterioration after prolonged exposure to elevated temperatures) and moderate strength. Its weldability is a plus. It is used similarly to aluminum 5083 (although 5086 has better stress corrosion cracking resistance) - in transportation, pressure vessels, cryogenics, towers and drilling rigs, gas/oil piping, ordnance, and armor plate.

Data points with the AA note have been provided by the Aluminum Association, Inc. and are NOT FOR DESIGN.
