The 2024 aluminum alloy is often used in aircraft structural applications due to its high strength and fatigue resistance. Like other 2000 series alloys, 2024 is primarily alloyed with copper. It also contains manganese and magnesium and can sometimes contain smaller amounts of silicon, iron, chromium, zinc and/or titanium. This alloy features high strength, poor corrosion resistance and weldability, good workability, and fair machinability. It is suited to applications that require high stress and strain resistance. The 2024 aluminum alloy is stronger but less versatile than 6061 alloy (also known as “structural aluminum”) which is more corrosion resistant, easier to weld, and more suited to machining. Compared to 7075 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.
AVIATIONEU NEW ERA aluminum sheets from 2024 alloy, O-Temper, are sourced from certified manufacturers, they are competitively priced. They are readily formed in the annealed condition, possess good machinability, may be heat treated and can be machined to a high finish. 2024 aluminum sheets are often used for applications in the aerospace industry (*). Available for cut to order in different thicknesses, widths and lengths with mill finish, they consist a cost effective solution when large quantities of such sheets are demanded.

(*) 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).
