7075 aluminum plate
Properties of 7075 Aluminum plate
7075 aluminum plate (Al-Zn-Mg-Cu) belongs to super-hard aluminum. As a kind of cold finished wrought alloy, it has great strength and hardness. It’s far better than mild steel. This alloy has good mechanical properties and anode reaction. 7075 aluminum sheet as a typical kind of aerospace aluminum alloy material is usually used for high-end fields.
Features of 7075 Aluminum plate
Alloy 7075 aluminum plate have been and remain the baseline standard with a good balance of properties required for aerospace applications. 7075 aluminum sheet is among the highest strength alloys available and used in highly stressed parts. Corrosion resistance and machinability are rated as fair, though the addition of chromium provides good stress-corrosion cracking resistance in 7075 aluminum sheet products. As with alloy 2024, alloy 7075 is available in bare form or in clad ("Alclad") to offer even further protection from corrosion.
Applications of 7075 Aluminum plate
7075 super-hard alloy is the most representative one of 7000 series, is usually used as welding or aircraft materials. 7075 aluminum sheet is used for manufacturing of high-strength aircraft structures and other high-stress structural parts with great strength and strong corrosion resistance, such as lower wing panel, stringers, frame of the aircraft.
