2618A - a strong aluminium alloy containing nominally 2% copper and 1.5% magnesium.
The alloy is solution treated and artificially aged to achieve the T6 condition or with the addition of controlled stretching to achieve the T6511 temper. 2618A can be employed to a maximum of 300°C and retains mechanical strength relatively well to around 200°C and above. The alloy has a density of 2.75 g/cc.
2618A aluminium alloy offers good machinability and has fair resistance to atmospheric attack. It is a strong aluminium alloy and can be used to produce clad sheet and strip.
