Aluminum 2024 T351 exhibits great physical and mechanical properties such as excellent resistance to fatigue and high strength.
Aluminum 2024 T351 grade is best known high strength aluminum alloy. This aluminum grade exhibits great physical and mechanical properties such as excellent resistance to fatigue and high strength. It can be a great advantage on components and structures desiring better “strength to weight” ratio.
It is not generally recommended to use gas or arc welding to weld the material. But it is best for the material to be seam, spot, and flash welded. Having a low corrosion resistance in its nature, this aluminum alloy grade is relatively clad formed or in anodized finish with a thin surface layer of purely high aluminum.
2024 – T3 aluminum grade class is usually cold worked, solution heat treated, and naturally aged up to its substantially stable condition. These grades are often applied to products being cold worked to enhance strength after heat treating solution in which straightening and flattening is recognized through the mechanical property limits as effects of cold working.
The solution heat treatment can be achieved by wrought products and heating cast to a suitable temp. It should hold the temperature long enough in order for the constituents to enter the solid solution and cool it rapidly enough to hold constituents in the solution.
Being a non-magnetic and heat-treatable material, this aluminum can be used in a wide variety of industrial and part applications requiring fatigue performance, stiffness, and good strength which include:
- Aircraft industry and motor sports
- Gears and shafts
- Wheels and bolts
- Shear webs and ribs
- Wing tension members
- Fuselage structures
- Hydraulic manifolds
- Aircraft fittings
- Fastening devices
- Worm gears
- Nuts and pistons
- Missile parts and munitions
- Couplings and fuse parts
- Fastening devices
- Rectifier, clock, and computer parts
