Chemical Composition
Physical Properties


Aluminium / aluminum is a popular material among manufacturers in various industries due to its light weight, high strength-to-weight ratio, resilience, and ductile at low temperatures.

Aluminium / aluminum 2000 series are high strength alloys. They can be solution treated, and then artificially or naturally aged to provide it significant increase of yield strength (4-6 times). Aluminium / aluminum 2224 alloy is a heat treatable wrought alloy.

The following datasheet will provide more details about aluminium / aluminum 2224 alloy.
