HIGH STRENGTH ALUMINIUM ALLOY (inc T651 Aluminium Plate)
Retaining its strength after heat-treatment, 2014A is classed as a high strength aluminium alloy. Supplied in the heat treated condition which is solution heat treated and artificially aged, the material is a 4 to 5% copper alloy. 2014A is used extensively in the production of high strength components, particularly in the Defence and Aerospace market. With very good machinability, the alloy is normally supplied in the T651 condition and is available in extruded bar and plate.
The alloy can be hard anodised and plated. The material's resistance to atmospheric attack is rated as poor.
Typical commercial applications for 2014A aluminium alloy include:
- Aerospace and Defence components
- Structural applications and components
- Aerospace structures and vehicle frames
- Good strength after heat treatment
- Can be hard anodised and easily plated
- Very good machinability
