Features of 5052 5182 aluminum sheet coils for can lids
Corrosion resistance: both 5052 and 5182 alloys offer exceptional corrosion resistance, making them suitable for applications in marine and chemical industries, condensers, and beverage can production. They maintain stability when in contact with liquids.
Formability: 5052 alloy demonstrates excellent formability, making it suitable for various complex shapes and structures. 5182 alloy excels in forming capabilities, particularly advantageous in can manufacturing.
Moderate strength: the moderate strength of 5052 and 5182 alloys allows the tops to withstand the pressure of canning and prevents deformation during the canning process. They meet the strength requirements for beverage can lids, especially when a balance of moderate strength and high corrosion resistance is needed.
Surface quality: 5052 alloy sheets typically feature a flat and smooth surface, making them suitable for applications with high flatness and appearance requirements.
Food safety: both 5052 and 5182 alloys are food-safe materials, suitable for applications involving contact with food, such as can lids and food packaging.
Differences between 5052 H48 and 5182 H48 aluminum sheet coils
5052 alloy has a lower magnesium content and is widely used in various applications due to its early development. It constitutes around 60% of the total usage in the manufacturing of beverage can lids, with thicknesses typically ranging from 0.22 to 0.26mm.
5052 H48 is commonly employed in non-pressurized beverage can lids and food can lids. On the other hand, 5182 H48, with its enhanced hardness and formability, is typically used in pressurized (gas-containing) beverage can lids.
Applications of 5052 5182 aluminum sheet coils for can lids
5182 belongs to the aluminum-magnesium alloy category, with broad applications, especially in the construction industry. It is a highly promising aluminum alloy known for its excellent corrosion resistance, good formability, and moderate strength. It finds extensive use in various fields, including the manufacturing of beverage and food can bodies, 5182 automotive aluminum plates, condensers, construction materials, and specialized vehicles (5182 aluminum tank truck plates).
5052, with its main alloying element being magnesium, exhibits excellent formability, corrosion resistance, weldability, and moderate strength. It is commonly used in aircraft fuel tanks, pipelines, transportation vehicles, 5052 aluminum tread plates for ships, and 3C electronic enclosures.
In the field of metal packaging for beverage cans, specifically, 5052 and 5182 aluminum sheet coils are primarily employed in the production of can end ring-pulls, Beer ends, drink lids, beverage lids, beer lids, aluminum can lids, aluminum covers, and Pop Can Covers.
Chalco's best-selling aluminum materials for beverage cans
As is widely known, beverage cans consist of three integral components: the can body, can lid, and pull-tab ring. The can body is formed through high-speed stamping on deep-drawing presses, resulting in a seamless can body. The can lid is later attached through a curling process, facilitated by the excellent ductility of 3104 aluminum, ensuring a secure connection between the lid and the can body.
Currently, the most commonly used aluminum alloys for overall beverage can manufacturing are 3003-H14, 3104-H19, 5182-H48, and 5052-H48 aluminum can alloys. Their specific applications are outlined as follows:
3004 3104 aluminum coil strips for can body
3004 3104 aluminum alloy coils are the primary materials used for can bodies. 3104 belongs to the Al-Mn alloys category. The addition of the main alloying element, manganese (Mn), enhances the mechanical properties of the alloy without compromising its corrosion resistance. The most commonly used 3104-H19 aluminum coil for can bodies offers exceptional deep-drawing capability and robust corrosion resistance.
5052 5182 aluminum sheet coils for can lids
5052 5182 aluminum alloys are the most widely used materials for can lids. These 5xxx series aluminum-magnesium alloys offer excellent ductility and high strength, allowing easy production of various lid sizes. The 5052-H48 temper, with its moderate strength, can withstand the stresses of carbonated beverages and other gas metal packaging, making it an ideal material for lid production.
5182 aluminum sheet coils for can pull tabs
5182 aluminum alloy is the most representative material for pull-tab manufacturing. Classified under the 5xxx series of aluminum-magnesium rust-resistant alloys, 5182 aluminum sheets have a magnesium (Mg) content ranging from 4% to 5%. They exhibit excellent corrosion resistance and processability, along with high tensile strength, making them well-suited for aluminum pull-tab production with specific hardness requirements.
