Aerospace Aluminium Plate International Specifications

Aluminium plate is produced to international aerospace specifications in a wide variety of alloys. Physical and mechanical properties vary a great deal depending on the alloy and the heat treatment employed making correct product selection critical. Flatness is often another key consideration selecting the right product for a specific application. Both metric and imperial sizes held in stock.

Available Products

2014A

A high strength heat treatable alloy with good machinability. Cold formability can be limited when used fully heated treated as can weldability. Natural corrosion resistance is poor therefore a protective coating is often required.

BS L93
DTD 5010

2024

A high strength heat treatable alloy with excellent fatigue resistance. Workability is good and it can easily be machined to a high finish. Weldability is generally poor although it can be flash spot or seam welded.

FED L97
AMS 4035, 4037
FED QQ-A-250/4

2124

Similar properties to 2024 but with closer controls on iron and silicon content to optimise strength and toughness.

   

2219

An age hardenable heat treatable alloy often used in high temperature applications where welding is a requirement. High fracture toughness and stress corrosion resistance.

   

2618A

A high strength alloy with fair corrosion resistance. Good retention of strength at 200oC and above. Often used in high temperature aerospace and motorsport applications.

   

6061

A medium strength alloy with good corrosion resistance and good workability. In the annealed condition it can be easily welded and formed. More popular in the USA this alloy is often replaced by 6082 in Europe.

AMS 4025, 4026, 4027
FED QQ-A-250/11

6082

A popular medium strength alloy with good corrosion resistance and good workability. In the annealed condition it can be easily welded and formed. Good anodising properties. Suitable for many applications.

BS L115
   

7010

A high strength heat treatable alloy with good resistance to stress corrosion. Slightly higher strength that 7075 but not suitable for high temperature applications.

DTD 5120B, 5130
AMS 4203, 4204, 4205

7050

A high strength heat treatable alloy with excellent resistance to stress corrosion (better than 7075) in larger thicknesses.

AMS 4050, 4201

7075

A high strength heat treatable aluminium alloy with excellent hardness properties. In the annealed condition this alloy can be flash or spot welded and is easily formed. Often used in aerospace applications for highly stressed parts.

BS L95
AMS 4044, 4045, 4078
FED QQ-A-250/12, 250/24

7175

Similar properties to 7075 but with closer controls on iron and silicon content to optimise strength and toughness.

7475

Similar properties to 7075 but with closer controls on iron and silicon content to optimise strength and toughness.

AMS 4089, 4090, 4202
