With zinc as it’s primary alloying element, the 7075 aluminum alloy is exceptionally strong. It also contains chromium and copper. This alloy features high strength, with average corrosion resistance, poor weldability and workability. It is also fairly machinable. A member of the 7000 series, it is one of the strongest alloys available and is comparable to many types of steel. Although it has high strength, it has lower corrosion resistance than other common aluminum alloys and does not offer the same levels of machinability or weldability. Due to its high strength, it is often used in applications where it will come under high stress such as aircraft wing spar and ground support equipment. Compared to 2024 alloy, also commonly used in the aerospace industry, the 7075 alloy can achieve a tensile strength of 83,000 psi and a yield strength of 73,000 psi, stronger than 2024 making it suitable for applications that require high stress/strain resistance.

(*) All aluminum alloys, regardless of product form, are classified as either heat-treatable or nonheat-treatable, depending upon the method used to attain their maximum strength. The modification methods applied to heat- and nonheat-treatable alloys are listed in the Temper Designation System (see attached table).
