: 12 March, 2010  (Technical Article)
The characteristics of the 5000 Series aluminium extrusions from Taber Extrusions are detailed in a white paper released for providing information to marine and military users of the material
Taber Extrusions, a manufacturer of complex aluminium extrusions, has released a white paper on its 5000 series aluminium extrusions.

“The white paper is meant as an education tool for marine and military applications,” says Bill Wetmore, president, Taber Extrusions. “The unique attributes of the 5000 Series aluminium extrusions, including its American production, have gained the attention and approval of the US military, allowing us to be the supplier of some of the military’s premier programs for nearly 40 years. In this white paper, we delve into the specifics of the 5000 series aluminium extrusions and explain why it is has become such a valuable component to the US military.”

The use of 5000 series alloy extrusions in marine and military vehicle applications offers multiple advantages over the more common 6000 series soft alloys and continues to be the materials of choice for both naval marine and military vehicle applications. When compared to 6000 series alloys, Taber Extrusions' 5000 series exhibits superior ductility, formability and corrosion resistance with mechanical properties approaching those of 6000 series alloys in T6 tempers. In addition, the 5000 series loses far less strength when subjected to the heat associated with traditional welding processes, minimizing the “weak link” that is often associated with welding.
