What aluminum alloys are used in shipbuilding?

There are many types of aluminum alloys used in the field of shipbuilding. Usually, these aluminum alloys need to have high strength, good corrosion resistance, weldability, and ductility to be well suited for use in marine environments.


Take a brief inventory of the following grades.


5083 is mainly used in the manufacture of ship hulls due to its high strength and good corrosion resistance.


6061 has high bending strength and ductility, so it is used for components such as cantilevers and bridge frames.


7075 is used to manufacture some ship anchor chains due to its high strength and wear resistance.


The brand 5086 is relatively rare in the market, as it has good ductility and corrosion resistance, so it is commonly used in the manufacture of ship roofs and stern plates.


What is introduced here is only a part of it, and other aluminum alloys can also be used in shipbuilding, such as 5754, 5059, 6063, 6082, and so on.


Each type of aluminum alloy used in shipbuilding needs to have unique performance advantages, and relevant design technicians must also choose according to specific needs to ensure that the completed ship has good performance and service life.
