Al 2024 Alloy Powder
Al 2024 is heat-treatable aluminum alloy with copper as the primary alloying element. Like other 2000 series alloys, 2024 is primarily alloyed with copper. It also contains manganese and magnesium and can sometimes contain smaller amounts of silicon, iron, chromium, zinc and/or titanium. Its melting point is nearly 637℃ and has a density of 2.78 g/cm3. It has 345 MPa yield strength and 483 MPa ultimate tensile strength. It is used in applications requiring high strength to weight ratio, as well as good fatigue resistance. Besides, it has good sinter ability. However, Al 2024 alloy has adequate machinability with poor corrosion resistance, and surface finish capabilities. Due to its high strength and fatigue resistance, 2024 alloy powder is widely used in aircraft structures. It is a high-strength alloy suitable for projects requiring a high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent fatigue resistance. Aluminum 2024 alloy powder can be widely used in aircraft fittings, gears and shafts, bolts, clock parts, computer parts, missile parts, munitions, nuts, pistons, rectifier parts, worm gears, fastening devices, veterinary and orthopedic equipment, structures.
