7075-T6 Aluminum Sheet is primarily used in aerospace industry, often referred to as the Strongest Aluminum grade. Alloy 7075 has the strength of many steels, while retaining aluminum’s lightweight qualities.
7075 aluminum sheet is one of the highest strength aluminum alloys available Its strength-to weight ratio is excellent and it is ideally used for highly stressed parts. It may be formed in the annealed condition and subsequently heat treated. Spot or flash welding can be used, although arc and gas welding are not recommended. It is available in the clad form to improve the corrosion resistance with the over-all high strength being only moderately affected. Applications: Used where highest strength
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.
