5052 is the highest strength alloy of the more common non-heat treatable grades. Fatigue strength is higher than most aluminum alloys. In addition, this grade has particularly good resistance to marine atmospheres and salt water corrosion. It has excellent workability. It may be drawn or formed into intricate shapes, and its slightly greater strength in the annealed condition minimizes tearing that occurs in 1100 and 3003. 5052 is used in a wide variety of applications including aircraft components and home appliances; marine and transportation industry parts; and heavy duty cooking utensils and bulk food processing equipment.
