Aluminium 7050 Bar, Sheet, Plate

Aluminum alloys have high strength at subzero temperatures. However, their strength can be reduced at high temperatures. Aluminium / Aluminum 7050 alloy is a heat treatable alloy. It has high toughness, strong mechanical strength, and good stress corrosion cracking resistance. The following datasheet gives an overview of Aluminium / Aluminum 7050 alloy. Aluminium alloy 7050 is an aerospace grade of aluminium combining high strength, stress corrosion cracking resistance and toughness. It is particularly suited for heavy plate applications (3" to 6" thick) due to it's lower quench sensitivity and retention of strength in thicker sections. Aluminium 7050 therefore is the premium choice aerospace aluminium for applications such as fuselage frames, bulkheads and wing skins.

However, their strength can be reduced at high temperatures. Aluminium / Aluminum 7050 alloy is a heat treatable alloy. It has high toughness, strong mechanical strength, and good stress corrosion cracking resistance. The following datasheet gives an overview of Aluminium / Aluminum 7050 alloy. Aluminium 7050 plate is available in two tempers. T7651 (AMS 4201) combines the highest strength with good exfoliation corrosion resistance and average SCC resistance. T7451 (AMS 4050) provides better SCC resistance and excellent exfoliation resistance at slightly lower strength levels. Aircraft Materials can also supply 7050 in round bar with temper T74511 (AMS 4342).
