Aluminum 2024-T6

Aluminum 2024-T6
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Aluminum Alloy; 2000 Series Aluminum Alloy
Material
Notes:

Weldability = C; Stress Corrosion Cracking Resistance = B; General Corrosion Resistance = D (A = best; E = worst).
Good machinability and surface finish capabilities. A high strength material of adequate workability. Has largely
superseded 2017 for structural applications.
Uses: Aircraft fittings, gears and shafts, bolts, clock parts, computer parts, couplings, fuse parts, hydraulic valve
bodies, missile parts, munitions, nuts, pistons, rectifier parts, worm gears, fastening devices, veterinary and
orthopedic equipment, structures.
Some data provided by Alcoa.
Data points with the AA note have been provided by the Aluminum Association, Inc. and are NOT FOR DESIGN.
Composition Notes:
A Zr + Ti limit of 0.20 percent maximum may be used with this alloy designation for extruded and forged products
only, but only when the supplier or producer and the purchaser have mutually so agreed. Agreement may be
indicated, for example, by reference to a standard, by letter, by order note, or other means which allow the Zr + Ti
limit.
Composition information provided by the Aluminum Association and is not for design.
