Aluminium Alloy 5154 primary constituent is magnesium which gives this non heat treatable alloy its moderate strength. Alloy 5154 combines its strength with excellent formabiltiy and corrosion resistance and is regularly used in wire form but is now becoming popular for use with cold heading applications, specifically in solid, semi-tubular and tubular rivets. Alloy 5154 is an all purpose alloy that meets a broad range of needs.
