ALUMINUM

Aluminum is a silver-colored, low density (2.7 g/cc) metal that finds use in a huge variety of commercial applications. Unalloyed aluminum is ductile, exhibits moderate strength, and is very resistant to corrosion under most circumstances. Aluminum can be dramatically strengthened by the addition of appropriate alloying elements (Cu, Mg, Mn, Si, etc.) and subsequent heat/work treatments. Aluminum is commonly used in both wrought and cast forms.

The low density of aluminum results in its extensive use in the aerospace industry, and in other transportation fields. Its resistance to corrosion leads to its use in food and chemical handling (cookware, pressure vessels, etc.) and to architectural uses.

Grade




2024T4 : One of the most widely used aluminum alloys, it finds applications in a variety of structural areas such as aircraft structures, fasteners, hardware, wheels, screw machine products. 2024 exhibits poor corrosion resistance for an aluminum alloy.

6061T6 : General 6061 characteristics and uses: Excellent joining characteristics, good acceptance of applied coatings. Combines relatively high strength, good workability, and high resistance to corrosion; widely available.

Uses: Aircraft fittings, camera lens mounts, couplings, marines fittings and hardware, electrical fittings and connectors, decorative or misc. hardware, hinge pins, magneto parts, brake pistons, hydraulic pistons, appliance fittings, valves and valve parts.

7075T6 : General 7075 characteristics and uses: Very high strength material used for highly stressed structural parts.

Applications: Aircraft fittings, gears and shafts, fuse parts, meter shafts and gears, missile parts, regulating valve parts, worm gears, keys, aircraft, aerospace and defense applications; bike frames, all terrain vehicle (ATV) sprockets.
