ALUMINUM ALLOYS

Grade Type Traits
355.0 Cast Very hard. Good machinability and corrosion resistance
A356.0 Cast General purpose alloy. High strength and good castability. Great corrosion resistance
A360 Cast High strength when treated. Average machinability, good corrosion resistance
2014 Wrought Easily machinable in certain tempers. Among the strongest aluminium alloys. High hardness. Difficult to weld, as it’s subject to cracking. Commonly extruded and forged. Corrosion resistance is poor.
2024 Wrought Copper used as the principal alloying element and can be strengthened significantly through solution heat-treating. Good combination of strength and toughness, but lower atmospheric corrosion resistance than many other aluminum alloys
3003 Wrought Moderate strength and good workability. Manganese is the major alloying element
4047 Wrought Unique; used as cladding or filler alloy. Filler strips can be combined to bond two metals.
5052 Wrought Moderate to high strength, as well as good weldability and resistance to corrosion in marine environments.
5059 Wrought Resistant to saltwater corrosion
5083 Wrought Highest strength of non-heat-treated alloys. Good weldability and resistance to corrosion in marine environments.
5086 Wrought Resistant to saltwater corrosion
5754 Wrought Moderate to high strength, excellent weldability
6061 Wrought Heat treatable, highly formable, weldable. Moderately high strength and highly corrosion-resistant. Contains silicon and magnesium

6351 Wrought Heat treatable, highly formable, weldable. Moderately high strength and nice corrosion resistance
6951 Wrought Heat treatable to provide additional strength
7050 Wrought Heat-treatable, incredibly strong alloy. Zinc is primary alloying agent. Magnesium, copper, and chromium exist in small quantities.
