2024 Aluminium Sheet

Also supplied in clad form

2024 aluminium sheet finds use in aircraft fuselage and structures.

2024 aluminium sheet is a strong and hard aluminium alloy and represents the most used aluminium grade for the production of aircraft skins.

Good fatigue resistance and fracture toughness are synonymous with 2024 aluminium. The material is specified throughout the aerospace sector as the alloy promotes an attractive good strength-to-weight ratio.

Delivery Condition

The alloy is manufactured in the annealed (O) condition and can be heat-treated to achieve various conditions. It is often made in “Alclad” form with a layer of high-purity aluminium on each side to increase corrosion resistance and improve fracture toughness whilst maintaining the strength that makes the 2024 alloy so popular for use on aircraft. Aerospace applications include critical aircraft structures, fuselage and wing tension members.

In-house Processing

Our guillotining service cuts your aluminium sheets to your size requirements, saving you time. Our highly efficient service operates out of our bulk warehouse facility in Biggleswade.
