2024 Aluminium Bar

For critical aircraft structures

Our 2024 aluminium bars offer impressive strength characteristics.

2024 aluminium is one of the most commonly used aluminium grades in the aerospace industry.

The alloy provides good strength and fatigue resistance, making it suitable for structural aircraft applications, including fuselage and wing sections. The temper of the material dictates the overall mechanical properties of the alloy.

While very strong and offering excellent toughness, 2024 aluminium is only weldable via friction welding and the overall machinability of the material is average.
