Properties and Selection of Aluminum Alloys
2027: Aerospace Plate and Extrusion Alloy
Alloy 2027 is an Al-Cu-Mg-Mn-Zr alloy providing improved mechanical properties compared with those of alloy 2024. Alloy 2027-T3511 extrusions are typically used for stringers to stiffen wing skin panels machined from damage tolerant 2xxx alloy plates. This datasheet provides information on key alloy metallurgy and processing effects on mechanical properties of plate and extrusions of this 2xxx series alloy.
