Alloy Group: 2XXX
PRINCIPAL ALLOYING ELEMENT: Copper
Group: Heat Treatable Alloys
ALUMINUM ALLOY 2024 GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
What is Alloy 2024?
2024 aluminum is heat-treatable aluminum alloy with copper as the primary alloying element. It is malleable when in the fully soft, annealed temper and can be heat-treated to high strength levels after forming. Due to its high strength to weight ratio, it is widely used in aerospace applications.
TYPICAL CHEMISTRY LIMITS for 2024 ALUMINUM:
Composition according to Aluminum Association.
TYPICAL MECHANICAL DATA for 2024 ALUMINUM:The following typical 2024 aluminum alloy properties are not guaranteed since in most cases they are average for various sizes and methods of manufacture and may not be exactly representative of any particular product or size.
