Aluminium 2011 Bar, Sheet, Plate

Aluminium alloy 2011 is a high mechanical strength alloy that machines exceptionally well. Often called a Free Machining Alloy or ‘FMA’ it is well suited to use in automatic lathes. Machining at high speeds produces fine chips that are easily removed. The excellent machining characteristics allow the production of complex and detailed parts. In some circumstances Aluminium alloy 2011 can replace free machining brass without the need for alterations to tooling.

2011 Aluminium is a high strength alloy with good machinability. Supplied solution heat treated and artificially aged to T6 temper. 2011 has poor corrosion resistance therefore parts requiring protection are usually anondised.Not recommended for welding.Used for Fasteners, Fittings, Automotive trim. The excellent machining characteristics allow the production of complex and detailed parts. In some circumstances 2011 can replace free machining brass without the need for alterations to tooling. It has poor corrosion resistance, which means parts made from 2011 tend to be anodised to provide additional surface protection.
