7050 Very High Strength Aluminum

 Alloy 7050 Aluminum is the premier choice for aerospace applications requiring the best combination of

strength, stress corrosion cracking (SCC) resistance and toughness. It is particularly suited for plate

applications in the 3 to 6 inch thickness range. Because it is less quench sensitive than most aerospace aluminum alloys, 7050 retains its strength properties in thicker sections while maintaining good SCC resistance and fracture toughness levels.

 

Alloy 7050 Aluminum plate is available in two tempers: T7651 combines the highest strength with good

exfoliation corrosion resistance and average SCC resistance; and T7451 provides better SCC resistance and excellent exfoliation resistance at slightly lower strength levels.

Alloy 7050 sheet is available bare and in the T76 temper.

Chemical Composition

 

Si........... 0.12

Fe.......... 0.15

Cu...... 2.0-2.6

Zr.. 0.08-0.115

Ti........... 0.06

Mg...... 1.9-2.6

Mn......... 0.10

Cr........... 0.04

Zn....... 5.7-6.7

Applications:

7075 applications include fuselage frames and bulkheads where section thicknesses are 2 to 6 inches. Typical sheet applications include wing skins. The major usage is in plate applications requiring thicknesses over 2 inches where 7050 has superior properties.

Long-term controlled and in-service evaluations have shown alloy 7050 plate and sheet products to maintain equal exfoliation and stress corrosion resistance at higher strength levels compared with other high strength alloys such as 7075.
