The Main 2xxx Aviation Aluminum Alloys

The derivatization of 2024 aviation aluminum alloy is to improve the plasticity, toughness and strength of the alloy while keeping the main alloy elements substantially unchanged. By reducing the Fe and Si impurity content in 2024 alloy, new alloys such as 2124, 2224, and 2524 have been developed one after another.

In the 1970s, on the basis of the traditional 2024 alloy, the 2124 alloy with high purity, high strength and high toughness was developed by reducing the content of impurities such as Fe and Si. It is the main structure of military aircraft such as western fighters F-14, F-15, F-16, A6, A8, Mirage 2000, and civil aircraft such as Boeing 737, Boeing 747, and Airbus A320.

2124 alloy is generally used in the temper of T851, which has good high-temperature fracture toughness and good strength durability at temperatures as high as 177 ℃. There are 99 pieces of 2124-T851 thick plate used on F-16, and the weight is about Is 1 ton. At present, the 2124 is still widely used in the main structural parts of the US fourth-generation fighters F-22 and F-35, and has broad application prospects in future military and civilian aircraft.

The 2224 alloy, which was successfully developed in 1978, was further purified by adjusting the alloy composition on the basis of the 2024 alloy. 2224 alloy is mainly used to produce extruded parts in the state of T3511, and has been used to manufacture structural parts of Boeing 757 and 767 aircraft.

The 2524-T3 alloy was used on the F-35 fighter that was developed in 1995 and first flew in 2000. 2524 aluminum alloy is a high-purity aluminum alloy. Its Fe and Si impurity content is significantly reduced compared to 2024, the Cr content is also significantly reduced, the Cu content range is reduced.

Its Mg and Mn content has been adjusted to ensure the strength and other properties equivalent to those of 2024 T3 aluminum while its fatigue strength is increased by 10%, the fracture toughness is increased by 20%, and the fatigue crack growth rate of the material is specified in the AMS standard for the first time, making the alloy a real damage tolerance alloy.
