Properties of Aluminum Forgings
The most widely-used metal in the world, aluminum
is light in weight, silvery-gray in appearance, and is the second
most malleable metal after gold. Most of the aluminum metal used
today is actually an aluminum alloy; pure aluminum is used only
where corrosion resistance is more important than strength. Alloy
elements are often added to aluminum to increase its hardness. About
one third as dense as most types of steel with a good strength to
weight ratio, aluminum exhibits excellent corrosion resistance due
to its protective oxide layer and is also extremely durable.
Philadelphia Forgings supplies forgings in
a variety of aluminum grades including the following:
a precipitation hardened alloy. Its forgings achieve a high level
of strength after heat treatment and are used in the frame structure
of trucks and aircraft.
one of the most common aluminum alloys and is capable of being hot
forged into a variety of automotive, marine, and structural components.
a heat treatable aluminum alloy. With good resistance to stress
corrosion cracking, 7050 aluminum forgings have good mechanical
properties such as toughness and strength.
high levels of strength as well as good mechanical properties at
lower temperatures. 7075 aluminum forgings are commonly used for
aerospace and air craft structures.
a yield strength that is higher than those of most other aluminum
alloys. 7079 aluminum forgings exhibit good mechanical properties
and are often used in structural applications where light weight
