2024 aluminum sheet plate

2024 aluminum sheet is a typical hard aluminum alloy (Al-Cu-Mg). It has more reasonable composition and better overall performance. It has a largest amount of market. Characteristics of the alloy: high strength, great resistance of heat which can be used below150°C . The alloy 2024 has a higher strength than 7075 alloy if the temperature is over 125°C. With the heat treatment, annealing and quenching conditions, it has a better formability. The effect of heat strengthening is obviously, but the processing is really strict with high standard.

2024 aluminum sheet is the typical hard aluminum alloy, its composition is reasonable, comprehensive performance is better, is the largest amount of hard aluminum.

Characteristics of the alloy are: high strength, a certain degree of heat resistance, can be used as working parts below 150 ℃. The temperature is higher than 125 ° C and the strength of the 2024 aluminum sheet alloy is higher than that of the 7075 aluminum sheet.
