Aluminum 7075-T6; 7075-T651
Categories: Metal; Nonferrous Metal; Aluminum Alloy; 7000 Series Aluminum Alloy

Material Notes: General 7075 characteristics and uses (from Alcoa): Very high strength material used for highly stressed structural parts. The T7351 temper offers improved stress-corrosion cracking resistance.

Applications: Aircraft fittings, gears and shafts, fuse parts, meter shafts and gears, missile parts, regulating valve parts, worm gears, keys, aircraft, aerospace and defense applications; bike frames, all terrain vehicle (ATV) sprockets.

Data points with the AA note have been provided by the Aluminum Association, Inc. and are NOT FOR DESIGN.

Composition Notes:
A Zr + Ti limit of 0.25 percent maximum may be used with this alloy designation for extruded and forged products only, but only when the supplier or producer and the purchaser have mutually so agreed. Agreement may be indicated, for example, by reference to a standard, by letter, by order note, or other means which allow the Zr + Ti limit.
Composition information provided by the Aluminum Association and is not for design.
