Stronger aluminum alloy with superior strength-to-weight ratio after heat treatment, ideal for CNC machined parts requiring high strength.

Chemical Composition Of Aluminum 7075-T6

7075 aluminium alloy (AA7075) is an aluminium alloy with zinc as the primary alloying element. It boasts excellent mechanical properties, showcasing flexibility, high strength, toughness, and fatigue resistance. However, microsegregation makes it more susceptible to embrittlement than many other aluminium alloys.

XTJ  also offers significantly better corrosion resistance than the 2000 series alloys. This alloy is one of the most commonly used aluminium alloys for highly stressed structural applications and has been extensively utilized in aircraft structural parts.

Chemical Composition Proportions Role of Each Element
Aluminum (Al) 87.1% – 91.4% The base metal that gives the alloy its lightweight properties.
Zinc 5.1% – 6.1% A primary alloying element that increases strength through precipitation hardening. Also improves corrosion resistance.
Magnesium 2.1% – 2.9% A key alloying element that increases strength through solid solution strengthening.
Copper 1.2% – 2.0% Another major alloying element that increases strength through precipitation hardening.
Iron Max 0.5% An impurity that decreases ductility and fracture toughness. Kept to a minimum.
Silicon Max 0.4% A natural impurity that increases fluidity during casting. Restricted to limit its negative effect on corrosion resistance.
Manganese Max 0.3% Added to control the grain structure during solidification. Improves strength without reducing ductility.
Chromium 0.18% – 0.28% Added for improved stress corrosion cracking resistance. Also contributes to strength.
Titanium Max 0.2% Added to refine the grain size, which increases toughness and ductility.
Zirconium 0.08% – 0.15% Improves grain structure control and recrystallization resistance when added with chromium.

The T6 heat treatment involves solution heat treating, quenching, and aging to achieve optimal strength.

Aluminum 7075-T6

The “T6” in Aluminum 7075-T6 indicates a heat treatment process. This temper involves solution heat-treating and artificial aging, enhancing the alloy’s strength and hardness. In this state, 7075 aluminum achieves peak mechanical properties, including a tensile strength of 510–540 MPa and a yield strength of 430–480 MPa.

7075-T6 is one of the strongest aluminum alloys, especially when compared to the 6000 series, making it suitable for applications that require high strength.

7075-T6 aluminum has superior corrosion resistance but is prone to stress-corrosion cracking. Its resistance can be enhanced through treatments like Anodizing, Chromate Conversion, Powder Coating, Plating, and Passivation.

Aluminum 7075 is available in various tempers, each with distinct properties:

  1. 7075-O: Annealed, offering high ductility but lower strength.
