    Principal Design Features :

    AL 2219 is an age-hardenable copper containing alloy of aluminum. It is noted for applications at elevated temperatures.

    Applications:

    Commonly used in the manufacture of structural components used in high temperature applications as well as high strength weldments.

    Machinability:

    In the annealed condition this alloy is readily machined. It is more difficult to machine in any of the heat treated conditions, which is the condition in which most machining is actually done. Use of oil base lubrication is advised for all machining operations.

    Forming:

    The alloy may be readily formed by conventional methods. However there are precautions in regard to hot forming – see “Hot Working”.

    Welding:

    Welding heat input affects the corrosion resistance of this alloy in an adverse manner. Thus any welding should be followed by a repeat heat treatment to restore corrosion resistance. Resistance welding and inert gas welding may be used with precautions to avoid strain cracking upon cooling. Alloy 2319 is best for a filler rod.

    Heat Treatment:

    Solution heat treatment is done at 1000 F followed by a cold water quench (T4 condition).

    Forging:

    Hot forging may be done providing the finished product is given the aging heat treatment to restore corrosion resistance.

    Hot Working:

    Hot working should be avoided unless it is feasible to give the finished product the aging heat treatment after all hot working is done. Otherwise the corrosion resistance will be adversely affected.

    Cold Working:

    Cold working by conventional means is readily accomplished.

    Annealing:

    Solution annealing is done at 1000 F for adequate time to allow thorough heating, followed by a cold water quench.

    Aging

    The alloy is aged at 375 F, after first doing the solution anneal at 1000 F and water quench, for varying time. For product forms such as forgings the 375 F aging is for 18 hours and for sheet, or plate (up to 2″ thick) it is 375 F for 36 hours followed by air cooling in each instance.

    Tempering:

    Not applicable to this alloy.

    Hardening:

    This alloy is hardened (strengthened) by an aging heat treatment or by controlled cold working from the solution annealed condition. See “Heat Treatment” and “Aging”.

    Other Physical Props :

    Electrical conductivity 30% that of copper.

    Physical Data :

    • Density (lb / cu. in.): 0.103
    • Specific Gravity : 2.84
    • Melting Point (Deg F) : 950
    • Modulus of Elasticity Tension: 10.6

dot  Aluminum Alloy – 7075

 

aluminium_alloys_7

Aluminum Alloy – 7075 is a a cold finished aluminum wrought product, has the highest strength of all aluminum screw machine alloys. The -T6 and -T651 tempers have a typical tensile strength of 83 ksi, which is higher than many mild steels.

Due to its very high strength, aluminum alloy 7075 is used for highly stressed structural parts. Applications include aircraft fittings, gears and shafts, fuse parts, meter shafts and gears, missile parts, regulating valve parts, worm gears, keys, and various other commercial aircraft, aerospace and defense equipment. Rod and bar product forms can be machined on multi-spindle and CNC machining equipment.

Corrosion:

Aluminium Alloy 7075 has moderate corrosion resistance. The over aged -T73 and -T7351 tempers offer good stress-corrosion cracking resistance as compared to the -T6 and -T651 tempers. (Caution: direct contact by dissimilar metals can cause galvanic corrosion.)

Anodizing:

The anodizing response rating for aluminum alloy 7075 is good using commercially available methods. The alloy can be both hard and clear-coat anodized. The properties listed in this Alloy Data Sheet represent the best current information for this alloy. In each specific application, the user is expected to evaluate and test the alloy, temper and finishing method. Consult the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for proper safety and handling precautions when using alloy 7075.

dot  Extruded Aluminum Alloy 6082

 

extruded_aluminum_alloy

Extruded Aluminum Alloy 6082 is offered for structural applications, including rod, bar, tube and profiles. This extruded aluminum alloy 6082 offers similar but not equivalent physical characteristics compared to 6061 alloy, and slightly higher mechanical properties in the -T6 condition.

Extruded Aluminum Alloy 6082 offers good weldability, brazeability, corrosion resistance, formability and machinability. When bending or forming6082 alloy, it is recommended to use the -0 or -T4 temper. For machining applications, 6082 provides good machinability in the -T5 or -T6 tempers. Machining chips may be difficult to break so it is recommended to use chip breakers or special machining techniques such as peck drilling to improve chip formation. For certain thin wall sections, -T6 temper may not be available due to alloy quenching limitations.

Various commercial joining methods (welding, brazing, etc.) can be easily applied to 6082 alloy. However since 6082 is a heat treatable alloy, strength will be reduced in the weld region.

Alloy 6082 is now available in Sapa’s ECON-O-ROD®, ECON-O-HEX®, ECON-O-PLATE®, ACC-U-ROD®, ACC-U-BAR™and ACC-U-PLATE® product forms to satisfy all of your structural and machining stock requirements. Tempers -T6 and -T6511 are now listed in ASTM B 221. Consult the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for proper safety and handling precautions when using 6082 alloy.

Extruded Aluminum Alloy 6082 – Temper Designations and Definitions:

Standard Tempers Standard Temper Definitions
F As fabricated. There is no special control over thermal conditions and there are no mechanical property limits.
O Annealed. Applies to products that are annealed to obtain the lowest strength temper.
T4 Solution heat-treated and naturally aged.
T5, T5511 Cooled from an elevated temperature shaping process and artificially aged.
T6, T6511 Solution heat-treated and artificially aged.
