Aluminum alloy is the first choice for lightweight aircraft and spacecraft, and aluminum is widely used in the aerospace industry.
Most cruise missile casings are made of high-quality aluminum alloy castings and forgings. Currently, the structural consumption of aluminum in civil aircraft is 70%~80%, and the consumption in military aircraft structures is 40%~60%. In the latest B777 technology, aluminum alloy accounts for more than 70% of the airframe structural mass.
The Grade Of Aircraft Aluminum That YK Aluminum Factory Can Supply.
2xxx series alloys are mainly used where high damage tolerance and fracture toughness are essential features.
Grade 2024-T3 is the most common high-strength aluminum alloy. It is often considered aircraft quality. It has excellent fatigue resistance even though its corrosion resistance is lower than that of 6061. This aluminum alloy sheet is commonly used to make the fuselage, wing skins, aircraft structure, and cowls of most airplanes. It’s also ideal for repairs and restoration because it has a shiny finish.
We also can supply 2a12, 2024 T351, and 2017 T4/T451.
7xxx series alloys are widely applied in aerospace components where high strength is the driving requirement, including upper wing skins, horizontal and vertical stabilizers, and wing stringers.
7050 aluminum alloy is used in aircraft structural parts, medium and heavy plates, extrusions, free forgings and die forgings for aircraft structural parts (the requirements for alloys in the manufacture of such parts are resistance to exfoliation corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, fracture toughness and fatigue. high performance), aircraft fuselage frame, wing skin, etc.
7075 is used to manufacture aircraft structures and other high-stress structural parts that require high strength and corrosion resistance, such as aircraft upper and lower wing panels, bulkheads, etc. After solution treatment, the plasticity is good, and the heat treatment effect is particularly good. It has high strength below 150 °C and has particularly good low-temperature strength.
Aluminum-clad and unclad sheets for the fuselage. Other parts have both high strength and high fracture toughness, such as aircraft fuselage, wing skins, bulkheads, helicopter decks, landing gear doors, bullet casings, etc.
We also can supply: 7150 T7751, 7085 T7651, 7055 T7751, 7175 T6/T651.
We can also provide other aviation aluminum alloys……
This alloy is best known for its high corrosion resistance and finish. It is easy to weld and has almost the same strength as mild steel. Grade 6061-T6 is often used to make landing mats for aircraft, truck bodies, and frames as well as structural components. It can be fabricated using the most common techniques which is an excellent property.
5052-H32 is a non-heat treatable aluminum alloy and has one of the highest strengths in its class. It is not structural but has high fatigue strength compared to other alloys. It also possesses excellent corrosion resistance, particularly in marine applications. Its excellent workability makes this aluminum sheet ideal for the construction of fuel tanks.
This aluminum sheet has great workability and is one of the most widely used aluminum alloys. It is made from a blend of pure aluminum and manganese. This sheet is also non-heat treatable but can be deep drawn, welded, spun, or brazed. It’s perfect for making cowls in aircraft and baffle plating.
