Properties and Selection of Aluminum Alloys
2055: Low-Density High-Strength Extrusion Alloy
Alloy 2055 is an Al-Cu-Li alloy developed as a replacement for high-strength 7xxx and 2xxx alloys in applications such as fuselage stringers and floor beams. This datasheet provides information on its key alloy metallurgy and illustrates the damage tolerance of 2055-T84 extrusions and 7xxx extrusions.
