Both 7075-T6 aluminum and 7075-T7 aluminum are variants of the same material. They share alloy composition and many physical properties, but develop different mechanical properties as a result of different processing. There are 31 material properties with values for both materials. Properties with values for just one material (1, in this case) are not shown.
7075 Aluminum is near the top of the list among aluminum alloys manufactured for the needs of consumer and industrial markets. Among other 7XXX alloys, alloy 7075 exists as a standard with a solid mix of properties suitable for aircraft and aerospace applications. In particular, this alloy utilized in various forms, including as 7075 aluminum bar, is well-suited for use in parts that endure high stress levels. The strength properties of alloy 7075 are beneficial for the manufacture of items such as aircraft structures, military grade rifles, bicycle parts and equipment, and plastic industry molds.
7075 is an aluminum alloy with zinc as the primary alloying element. It is strong, with a strength comparable to many steels, and has good fatigue strength and average machinability, but has less resistance to corrosion than many other Al alloys. Due to its high strength, low density, thermal properties and its ability to be highly polished, 7075 is widely used in mold tool manufacture.
