2024-T3 Aluminum Sheet & Plate
2024 is a high strength, fatigue-resistant aluminum alloy used by the motorsports and aircraft industries for structural applications. It has good machinability, and good corrosion in non-industrial atmospheres, but poor corrosion resistance in marine applications. 2024 is available from AED in bars, sheets, and plates. 2024 is sometimes used in place of 7075.

AED typically stocks 2024 plate in the “bare” form (T3 / T351), which meets Federal Specification QQ-A-250/4.
Stocked in full sheets, 48″ x 144″; cut pieces available. Other sheet and plate sizes may also be available on request, as well as “Alclad,” which meets QQ-A-250/5. Cladding provides superior corrosion resistance.
