5052-H32 Aluminum Test Panels

5052-H32 aluminum (AMS 4016) test panels are available in a wide range of sizes, gauge thicknesses and surface finishes. 5052 aluminum is a general purpose aluminum, often used in construction, food equipment, marine parts, fuel tanks, electrical enclosures, and other machinery. Because this alloy is so widely used, it's a popular material choice when testing new products or coatings for material compatibility. Some standard test panel sizes include 3" x 6", 3" x 10", and 4" x 6". Customized test panels are available on request.

  • Regular test panels are PVC-coated on both sides, cut to size, deburred, and packed in bundles. These panels may have some minor surface defects and will have mill oil on the surface, as these are the sheets in “as-received” condition from the aluminum mill.
