Our 5052 series aluminum is one of the most versatile grades of aluminum you can get. It welds beautifully, bends cleanly and has excellent machinability.
If you're looking for a material that is light, strong, easy to work with and resists the elements, you've found it. This is our favorite metal for prototypes, and... it looks great in any finish.
Won't rust, great outdoors
Easy to file, sand, machine drill
Optional Clean Cut:
Our aluminum can be laser cut using high-purity nitrogen to give you a reduced oxide, semi-clean edge. Using nitrogen as an assist gas reduces oxides from forming during the cutting process, so your parts are easier to paint, powder coat or weld without much additional processing like grinding or sanding. Contact us for a quote if your parts require Clean Cut.
Laser-cut aluminum will have a bit of dross buildup on the underside of your part(s). This is a normal occurrence from the cutting process. Due to manufacturing variables, your parts may also have small cosmetic imperfections/scratches. If you require a cosmetically-perfect finish, additional processing is available for a fee. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or make a note on your order to discuss options.
