The alloy which is available in plate form is designed specifically for high strength and damage tolerant applications where low density, high stiffness and excellent corrosion resistance is required.
The addition of lithium in the alloying process increases the strength and modulus of the material whilst lowering the density. 2070 aluminium lithium plates are available in thickness from 50.8mm to 165mm (2 to 6.5 inches) and is supplied in the T8E57 temper.

- Stiffness dominated
- Sutiable in gearbox and drivetrain design
TOUGHNESS & FATIGUE
2070-T8E57 plate has shown comparable fracture toughness and fatigue (smooth and open hole) to the 7050 T7451 plate product. Fatigue crack growth in L-T and T-L orientations across gauges is generally improved compared to 7050 T7451 plate product.
2070-T8E57 plate has shown excellent resistance to exfoliation corrosion and stress corrosion cracking in alternate immersion (ASTM G47) and seacoast environments.
