Aluminum Alloy, Alclad Sheet and Plate 4.3Cu - 1.4Mg - 0.60Mn (Alclad 2524-T3) Solution Heat Treated and Cold Worked
|Publication Date:||1 October 2017|
This specification covers an aluminum alloy in the form of sheet and plate 0.032 to 0.310 inch, incl (0.81 to 7.87 mm, incl) in thickness, clad on both sides.
These products have been used typically for formed structural aircraft parts requiring improved resistance to fatigue crack growth and high toughness with strength similar to Alclad 2024-T3, but usage is not limited to such applications.
Certain design and processing procedures may cause these products to become susceptible to stress-corrosion cracking; ARP823 recommends practices to minimize such conditions.
