Product Description

2124 Aluminum Plate

2124 aluminum plate

Alloy 2124 aluminum plate is a high purity form of 2024 and is normally supplied in 1.50″ – 6.00″ plate. Available in T851 temper, this plate alloy exhibits good strength retention and creep resistance at elevated temperatures up to 350 degrees. Fracture toughness levels of 2124-T851 plate are significantly higher than 2024-T851. This alloy is recommended for those applications requiring better short-transverse ductility, high strength and good machinability and has excellent exfoliation corrosion resistance. Fatigue properties of alloy 2124-T851 are similar to those of 2024-T851.

Applications of 2124 Aluminum Plate:

  • Machined fuselage bulkheads
  • Wing skins in high-performance military aircraft
