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.
6082 aluminum sheet is typically used in: ~ Highly stressed applications ~ Trusses ~ Bridges ~ Cranes ~ Transport applications ~ Ore skips ~ Beer barrels ~ Milk churns
2024-O temper aluminium has no heat treating. It has an ultimate tensile strength of 140–210 MPa (21–30 ksi), and maximum yield strength of no more than 97 MPa (14,000 psi). The material has elongation (stretch before ultimate failure) of 10-25%, this is the allowable range per applicable AMS specifications.2024-T3 temper aluminum sheet has an ultimate tensile strength of 400–430 MPa (58–62 ksi) and yield strength of at least 270–280 MPa (39–40 ksi). It has an elongation of 10-15%. 2024-T4 aluminum sheet Solution treated and naturally aged. 2024-T5 aluminum sheet Cooled from hot working and artificially aged (at elevated temperature) 2024-T351 temper aluminum sheet has an ultimate tensile strength of 470 MPa (68 ksi) and yield strength of 280 MPa (41 ksi). It has elongation of 20%.
