Product Capacities of Alloy 2014

Typical Uses

2014 aluminum alloy is extensively used in the aerospace industry, particularly for structural applications requiring high strength. This copper-based alloy is known for its excellent machining characteristics and is often used in the manufacture of sheets (especially aircraft aluminum sheets) and extrusions.

Typical aerospace components made from 2014 aluminum include aircraft fittings, wheels, tanks, and other major structural elements. Despite its high strength, this alloy has poor corrosion resistance and is usually clad with pure aluminum (called Alclad) or coated with paint for protection when exposed to the environment.

FAQs

What is 2014-T6 Aluminum Alloy?

2014-T6 aluminum alloy is a high-strength aluminum-copper alloy known for excellent machinability and high fatigue resistance. Key properties include high tensile strength, good thermal conductivity, and moderate corrosion resistance.

What's the Difference Between 2014 and 2024 Aluminum?

The main difference is in composition and properties. 2014 aluminum has more copper, providing higher strength and machinability, suitable for heavy-duty applications. 2024 aluminum has additional manganese and magnesium, offering better fatigue and corrosion resistance, making it ideal for aerospace applications.
