2000 series aluminum alloys, with copper as the primary alloying element, are a set of "hard alloys". They typically contain between 2 to 10% copper, with smaller additions of other elements. The copper provides substantial increases in strength and facilitates precipitation hardening but can also reduce ductility and corrosion resistance. These alloys are known for high performance and excellent strength over a broad range of temperatures but can be the most challenging to weld. They find use in many industries, including the aerospace sector. They are essential materials in various industries such as aerospace, marine, construction, and automobile.
