Rice grain sheet metal

Sheet Metal Peraluman
EN AW 5754

Available in smooth, diamond plate, and rice grain plate formats, this is the most popular alloy for light structural work.

The main alloying element is magnesium, which ensures optimal resistance to corrosion (even in marine environments), excellent mechanical properties, good weldability, and an excellent aptitude for bending.

technical characteristics

Weldability: good


Surface treatments

  • Technical anodisation: good
  • Decorative anodisation: sufficient

Workability: good


Resistance to corrosion

  • In normal environments: optimal
  • In marine environments: optimal


The sheet metal products in 5754 alloy are available in all commercial formats in the physical state H111 and H32, and in formats with special lengths from coils.
The alloy 5754 is available in smooth format in thicknesses ranging from 1 to 6 mm, and in diamond plate format in thicknesses of 2, 3, and 5mm + Diamond.
