Aluminium 7075 is one of the strongest aluminium alloys and has excellent mechanical properties. Aluminium 7075 consists of approximately 90% aluminium, 5.6% zinc, 2.5% magnesium, 1.6% copper and 0.23% chromium. The alloy has excellent mechanical properties and is therefore widely used in applications where high strength and wear resistance are required.
Main advantages of 7075 aluminium
Excellent strength and hardness, the material can withstand heavy loads and pushing. As an example, consider the aerospace industry, where it is used to make airplane fuselages, wings, landing gear, engines and other parts.
Aluminium 7075 also has excellent corrosion resistance, meaning it is resistant to weathering and oxidation. This property ensures that the alloy maintains its mechanical properties even under extreme conditions, so application in harsh environments is not a problem.
7075 aluminium is also easy to process. It can be well machined, welded, formed and ground. These features enable the production of complex and precise components with high precision. This alloy is also easily polishes easily a lacquered , allowing a high aesthetic level of the product to be achieved. Let us also mention the low density, which makes it a lightweight material.
It is the versatility and wide range of applications that make 7075 aluminium a great option, we will be happy to advise you on its application!
