2024 aluminium alloy sheet is an aluminium alloy, with copper as the primary alloying element. It is used in applications requiring high strength to weight ratio, as well as good fatigue resistance. It is weldable only through friction welding, and has average machinability. Due to poor corrosion resistance, it is often clad with aluminium or Al-1Zn for protection, although this may reduce the fatigue strength.
5251 aluminum sheet Applications 5251 is typically used in: ~ Boats ~ Panelling and pressings ~ Marine structures ~ Aircraft parts ~ Vehicle panels ~ Furniture tubing ~ Silos ~ Containers
Aluminum Alloy 6061 sheets are the most versatile of the heat treatable aluminum alloys. Though less strong than most of the 2000 and 7000 alloys, 6061 aluminum provides an extensive range of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance and can be fabricated by many of the commonly used practices. In the “”O”” temper or annealed condition, alloy 6061 has good formability. In the T4 condition, fairly severe forming can be done; whereas, in the T6 condition, properties may be obtained by artificial aging.
