2024-O CLAD (ALCLAD) Aluminum, often referred to as aerospace grade aluminum, is an excellent choice when high strength capabilities, fatigue resistance and high corrosion resistance are needed. Aluminum 2024 O-temper sheets/plates are found in aircraft siding and skins because of its high strength-to-weight ratio and clad aluminum or Alclad surface, further improving corrosion resistance.
2024-O temper aluminium has no heat treating. Since corrosion resistance is relatively low, it is commonly used with an anodized finish or in CLAD form (ALCLAD) with a thin surface layer of high purity aluminum. As an enhanced sheet for fuselage applications, ALCLAD offers improved fracture toughness and fatigue crack growth while maintaining the strength characteristics of the alloy.
2024-O Alloy (Annealed) ALCLAD Aluminum Sheets are readily formed in the annealed condition and may be subsequently heat treated. They feature good machinability and can be machined to a high finish. Offered in different thicknesses, widths and lengths in inches subject to minimum order quantity restrictions, these sheets can be cut to smaller lengths to facilitate their shipment. They comply with AMS and ASTM specifications. Please refer to the available sheet dimensions and contact us for a quotation.
