Aerospace Aluminum Extrusion FAQ

Here are most of the questions related to aircraft aluminum extrusion. We hope you will find the answer to your question. If not, please leave us a message.

What is the meaning or essence of aluminum “temper” designation?2024-02-29T02:56:01+00:00

When we say aluminum extrusions’ “temper” designation, we mean that the material has been taken through heat treatment. The heat treatment is meant to enhance the properties of the material for use in aerospace applications or any other specific area. A good example is T6, which starts with solution heat treatment and then artificial aging. The result is an alloy that has the highest strength. For T4, there is no aging with solution heat treatment. The resulting material may be not as strong as T6, but its formability is better. Each of the other tempers has a unique heat treatment process that results in unique characteristics.

What are the main differences between aerospace aluminum extrusion alloys 6061, 2024, and 7075?2024-02-29T02:54:02+00:00

Aluminum alloy 7075 is mostly identified with superb strength, sometimes even comparable to some versions of steel. Its strength-to-weight ratio is good too, meaning that it provides high strength while still very light. So if you are looking for an alloy to use where the most strength is needed in an aircraft, this material is worth considering. Aluminum 2024 is also renowned for its high strength-to-weight ratio, but it is typically not as strong as 7075 aluminum. Then there are 6061 aluminum extrusions, which are the most versatile of the trio. Its combination of strength, corrosion resistance, weldability, and capability to be welded is excellent. Overall, each of these alloys can be used as aerospace extrusions, but you need to know where to place them for optimum results.

Is there a big difference between aluminum alloy 7075 tempers T6511 and T6?2024-02-29T02:50:56+00:00

There is no big difference between the tempers, but the suitability of the materials for specific aerospace projects can vary a lot. The tempers are different in the sense that T6511 extrusions have been stretched. Note that T6511 and T6 extrusions have a common process of solution heat treatment and artificial aging. However, T6511 goes beyond this with stretching. This step is crucial for the removal of residual stresses.

What is the level of your aluminum products with aerospace requirements?2024-02-29T02:39:57+00:00

Our aerospace aluminum extrusions are highly compatible with the manufacturing standards of the aerospace and defence industry. It is a deliberate effort from our side to ensure that every bit of the products adheres to the stringent standards of the aerospace industry. This is not a challenge for us because we are aware of the standards in China, EU, and USA. That said, our manufacturing process for these parts is a synergy with the suppliers and the client. We want to always be updated on the requirements of the product. In that regard, we have a reliable and recognized quality management system AS9100D. That ensures that we comply with the strict regulations within the aerospace and defence manufacturing industry.

Can I use Fonnov extrusions to build an airport facility?2024-02-29T02:34:05+00:00

Yes, Fonnov does have a broad range of aluminum extrusions fit for airport facility applications. There are so many construction jobs in these facilities that can use our durable, machinable, and versatile materials.

They are corrosion-resistant, durable, and versatile. Furthermore, these materials can be fine-tuned to match the aesthetic requirements of the airport facilities.

Are there customized aerospace aluminum extrusions?2024-02-29T02:20:17+00:00

Yes, customization for aerospace aluminum extrusions is available. If you need specific attributes on an extrusion, the manufacturing process can be tailored to address such. To add to the customization level, Fonnov could also perform secondary milling operations on the material. Popular operation that add suitability to the aerospace aluminum extrusions is CNC machining. With this versatility of design and manufacturing, it is possible to get the best extrusions in terms of weight, durability, and functionality. The cost aspect is also well covered.

Which aluminum and temper is the best for aerospace application?2024-02-29T02:15:25+00:00

Many factors will determine the temper designation you choose for your aerospace application. What is your desired balance for important factors such as machinability and strength? What specific components or parts are you looking to use the aluminum extrusion for? For 6061 aluminum extrusions in aerospace, T6 is great. If you are looking for 7075 aluminum extrusions in aerospace, consider using T6511. If choose 2024 aluminum extrusions, T3511 will be great.

What 2024 aluminum extrusions do you produce?2024-02-29T02:57:12+00:00

2024 Aluminum Bars & 2024 Aluminum Rods

In bar form, 2024 aluminum extrusions can be in square, flat, round, or hexagonal shape. There are also variations in dimensions such as thickness and width, or diameter for rods.

Fonnov Aluminum manufactures different sizes of 2024 aluminum bars and rods to cater to a wide range of industry uses. The 2024 aluminum round bars or rods and flat bars typically come as 2024T3, 2024T3510, 2024T3511, 2024-T8, 2024-T8510, and 2024-T8511.

What are the tempers for 2024 aluminum extrusions?2024-03-01T06:52:20+00:00

The temper or heat treatment process involves subjecting the aluminum to heating and cooling in a controlled environment. This process adjusts both the mechanical properties and internal structure of the aluminum alloy.

As the user, it is important to recognize the temper designations and the impacts that subsequent processes can have on the product.

Aluminum products have both alloy and temper designations. Alloy designations are given in the form of four-digit numbers as an identification of the chemical composition of the alloy. As an addition to the alloy designation, temper designations are in alphanumerical form.

By looking at the temper designation, one can determine the treatment process used to achieve the product.

The tempers for 2024 aluminum include T3, T3510, T3511, T8, T8510, T8511, and O, and some tempers’ characteristics are as indicated in the table below:

2024 Aluminum Temper Description
O No heat treatment
T3 Solution heat treated

2024 Aluminum vs. 7075 Aluminum2024-03-01T06:52:00+00:00

If you are unsure which option between 2024 and 7075 aluminum is better, it is understandable. Both alloys are known for their high strength, so they could suit a project if that is the sole consideration.

But when it comes to specifics, things begin to change. For instance, if you are looking for an alloy with higher stress/stain resistance, then we would recommend the 7075 aluminum. However, use 2024 aluminum if the cyclic fatigue resistance requirements for your project are high.

The 2024 aluminum is mainly composed of aluminum, copper and magnesium. The 7075 aluminum is mainly composed of aluminum, zinc and copper.

They are all hard alloy, and widely used in aircraft parts. But the 2024 aluminum is not common for general industries.
