7005 aluminum sheet can be stressed further before being permanently deformed. The post weld heat treating process known as “aging” is 600 degrees Fahrenheit as opposed to 6061 at over 900 degrees Fahrenheit, making it a simpler and quicker process. Most of the commercially available butted tubes are 7005. We offer material from a variety of producers including Dedacciai, Nova and custom pipes from TubePro. We also have a nice selection of straight gauge and heirloom tubes collected over the years. Production, semi-custom and full custom frame components are available.
7005 aluminum sheet, is often used for manufacturing welded structures which not only have high strength but also high fracture toughness such as truss, rod/bar and the container in transportation vehicles; large-sized heat exchangers, some parts which cannot been performed solid fusion processing after welding; and also manufacturing of sports equipment for tennis rackets and baseball bats.
7005 aluminum plate sheet belongs to the Al-Zn-Mg-Cu super hard aluminum, good welding performance, heat treatment can be strengthened, the strength is less than 6061, but it is lighter as a typical lightweight aluminum. 7005 Aluminum Alloy plate sheet often used in making welded structure have both high strength and high fracture toughness, such as transport vehicles, truss rod, container; large heat exchanger, and after welding can not be solid melt processing components; also can be used in the manufacture of sports equipment such as tennis racket and baseball bat.
