Aluminum alloy 5083 offers an extremely desirable combination of properties for cryogenic equipment. It is one of the newest and strongest of the aluminum-magnesium—manganese alloys, the 5000 series, yet retains the excellent weld-ability and weld ductility that are characteristic of these alloys. In addition, it has good resistance to corrosion and stress corrosion. Alloy 5083 is available in a wide range of sheet and plate gauges and tempers, and in extrusions. The minimum specified properties of plate gauges of 5083 are given in Table I [1].
