5052 Aluminum

We are using 0.32 5052 H-32 for a few side and ceiling panels. Are there different grades of aluminum sheets? I concerned about discoloring.

Interior?

There are many different sheet aluminum alloys. If it is bare and uncoated, it will show signs of touching.

Thanks Lance
This is for the interior...I bought 5 sheets of 5052 from Coast Aluminum, here in California and I never considered the coating. I am concerned about the longevity and should I spec a different sheet?
Patina is one thing but not exactly what we are looking for.

You'll have to clear coat it or paint it to keep it nice. See Melody Ranch's posts or HiHoAgRV's posts on clear coating interior skins.
