7050 aerospace aluminum plate sheet vs 7075

  • 7075 is AlZn5.6Mg2.5Cu1.6Cr0.23 and 7050 is AlZn6.2Cu2.4Mg2.3Zr0.12. The main alloy difference is the use of "Zr" instead of "Cr".
  • 7050 T7451 (AMS 4050), which has slightly lower levels than 7050 T7651 (AMS 4342), has better SCC resistance and excellent flaking resistance.
  • 7050 T7451 exhibits better toughness, corrosion resistance and resistance to stress corrosion cracking than Alloy 7075. Because it is less sensitive to quenching than most other aerospace alloys, 7050 maintains its strength properties better than other high-strength alloys in thicker sections and more consistently throughout the thickness range in heavier gauges processing.

7000 Series aluminum alloys have long been the first choice for aerospace and aircraft applications. The 7xxx series offers designers extremely high strength, lower manufacturing costs and lower replacement risk, making it the alloy of choice for applications where strength is a primary requirement.

The main alloying element of 7050 aerospace alloy is zinc. In addition to 3%-7.5% Zn, Mg can be added to obtain MgZn2, which has a significant strengthening effect and has a better heat treatment effect than Al-Zn alloy.

7050 thick aluminum plate has the characteristics of high strength, high toughness, fatigue resistance, and damage resistance. It is an indispensable key material for various key structural parts in the aerospace field. It can maintain overall flatness and no deformation after asymmetric processing.
