2024 aluminum sheet is a popular aerospace-grade aluminum alloy that is known for its high strength and excellent fatigue resistance. It contains copper as its primary alloying element, along with smaller amounts of magnesium, manganese, and silicon.
2024 aluminum sheet is often used in aircraft structural components and parts, such as wing and fuselage structures, landing gears, and engine parts. It is also used in other high-stress applications, such as bicycle frames, automotive parts, and sporting goods.
2024 Aluminum Plate Parameters
2024-T3 aluminum; This is the most common high-strength alloy. 2024 T3 aluminum sheet is considered an aircraft alloy due to its strength.
2024T3 aluminum sheet has excellent fatigue resistance. It is generally not recommended to weld on this type of aluminum sheet.
The typical uses of 2024T3 aluminum sheets are aircraft skins, cowls, and aircraft structures, and due to its shiny finish, it is also used for RV repair and restoration, such as Airstreams.
