Aluminium 2017 Bar, Sheet, Plate

Aluminium Alloy 2017 (2017 A) has high strength with excellent fatigue strength. Alloy 2017 also has very good machining characteristics. It is suitable for welding only by resistance welding. Alloy 2017 (2017 A) is used for various applications from high strength structural components, aircraft, machine construction, military equipment, rivets.

Aluminium/aluminum 2017 alloy is a heat treatable wrought alloy with intermediate strength. It is stronger than aluminium /aluminum 2011, but harder to machine. Workability is fair with ductility and formability better that aluminium / aluminum 2014. Arc and resistance weldability of this alloy are satisfactory while corrosion resistance is fair.

Advantages

  • Greater corrosion resistance
  • Higher tensile strength
  • Brilliant polish
  • Excellent machine strength
  • High creep resistance
  • High temperature strenght
  • Excellent mechanical properties
