7075 Aluminum Plate and Sheet
High-Grade 7075 Aluminum on Offer Here
Aluminum alloy 7075, which was initially developed entirely in secret and used in the production of aircraft for the Imperial Japanese Navy during WWII, has remained the mainstay 7XXX series alloy for aerospace and aircraft industries since its introduction into the United States market by Alcoa in 1943.
The main alloying element in 7075 is zinc. 7075 was the first Al-Zn-Mg-Cu high-strength alloy that utilized the addition of chromium as an alloying element, resulting in good stress-corrosion cracking resistance for sheet products. Although 7075 Aluminum has no weldability, a low level of corrosion resistance and only offers average performance this alloy offers considerable fatigue strength. With a high strength-to-density ratio, 7075 alloys are often used in applications such as rock climbing equipment, hang glider airframes, and military rifles. Not surprisingly, 7075 aluminum is still considered the go-to alloy for the aircraft and aerospace industries today.
