Do you know Aluminium Alloy 2024 T4 Sheets?

Last Updated: 2019-12-15

Aluminium Alloy 2024 T4 Sheets are widely used for a majority of the reasons. Its cheap, light-weight, and high performance are the main reasons for its widespread use. It is chemically resistive, non-sparking, electrically conductive, reflective, thermally conductive, non-magnetic. It is implemented in the marine and aerospace industries, construction, electronic enclosures, aircraft, and spacecraft.

Aluminium Alloy 2024 T4 Sheets are present in so many designs because it is having the characteristics as the ease of manufacture, machinability, strength to weight ratio. Anodizing increases this corrosion resistance, permits different color finishes, and surface hardness.
