Properties of 2024 Aluminum Sheet
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.
Propeller structure, airframe and other
2024 t3 aluminum sheet
2024-T3 aluminum; This is the most common of the the high-strength alloys. Aircraft quality 2024 T3 aluminum sheet is thought of as the aircraft alloy because of it's strength. 2024T3 aluminum sheet has excellent fatigue resistance. Welding is generally not recommended on this aluminum sheet. Typical uses for 2024T3 alclad aluminum sheet are aircraft skins, cowls, aircraft structures, and also for RV repair and restoration like Airstreams because of it's shiny finish (2024T3 alclad)
Features and Applications of 2024 Aluminum Sheet
2024 aluminum sheet is widely used for aircraft structures (like skin, skeleton, rib beams, bulkheads, etc.), rivets, missile components, the card wheel hub, propeller components and various other structural parts.
