Properties and Selection of Aluminum Alloys
2050: Al-Cu-Li Alloy
The Al-Cu-Li alloy 2050 was designed to replace 2xxx alloys at low thicknesses and 7xxx alloys on the thicker end of the range. This datasheet provides information on key alloy metallurgy and processing effects on mechanical properties of this 2xxx series alloy. A figure presents a performance comparison of 2050 and 7050.
