2024 aluminum is an age-hardening, high-strength aluminum alloy that is alloyed with copper as its primary alloying element. It is useful in a variety of applications, including:
The mechanical properties of aluminum 2024 vary depending on the temper of the material. The following are some of the typical properties of this aluminum bar in the T3 temper:
It is machinable, but it is not as easy to machine as some other aluminum alloys. It is recommended to use oil lubricants for all machining operations.
It can be formed by conventional methods, but hot forming should not be considered. The aluminum 2024 is weldable, but it but many do not recommend it because it can degrade the corrosion resistance of the alloy.
The corrosion resistance of 2024 aluminum is not as good as some other aluminum alloys. Experts suggest to anodize the surface of this aluminum to improve its corrosion resistance.
It is an age-hardening alloy, which means that it can be strengthened by heat treatment. The following are some of the common heat treatments for this aluminum grade:
2024 aluminum is popular in a variety of applications, including:
