OK Tigrod 5183

The following items have been added to your list


OK Tigrod 5183 was developed to provide the highest strengths possible in the as welded condition of alloy AA 5083 and other similar high magnesium alloys. The more common OK Tigrod 5356 will typically fail to meet the as-welded tensile requirements of AA 5083. The alloy is typically utilised in marine and structural applications where high strengths, high fracture toughness for impact resistance and exposure to corrosive elements are important. The alloy is not recommended for elevated temperature applications due to its susceptibility to stress corrosion cracking. The alloy is non-heat treatable.
