What Alloys for Marine Use

The marine industry has been using aluminum in the manufacturing of boating vessels for over 100 years due to aluminum’s wide range of application use.

The 5000 alloys are considered the top choice when it comes to marine grade aluminum. Boat hulls are commonly made out of of a rolled aluminum sheets or plates due to its terrific corrosion resistance and high strength at weld points.
