AL2024 is an aluminium alloy, with copper as the primary alloying element. It is used in applications requiring high strength to weight ratio, as well as good fatigue resistance, weldablility and average machinability. It comes in different tempers (O without heat treatment or T with heat treatment). Due to the poor corrosion resistance of this alloy it is often clad (specified as CLAD or ALCLAD) in which case high-purity aluminium surface layers are metallurgically bonded to the aluminium alloy core material.
AL2024 bars/rods are offered as part of our own branded (AVIATIONEU NEW ERA) product lines along with those from other aluminum and steel alloys (e.g. AL5052, AL6061, AL7050, AL7075, ST4130, ST4140 etc.). Like other AL2024 products these bars/rods can be used in an extensive list of applications in aerospace, automotive and many other industrial sectors.
AVIATIONEU NEW ERA 2024-T351 aluminum round bars/rods are sourced from quality producers. They are heat treated, cold finished and available in different diameters and pre-cut lengths in inches to meet application requirements. They comply with ASTM -B211, AMS -4120 & AMS -QQ-A-225/6 specifications.
