High Strength, Low Density

Aluminium Lithium finds use in aerospace and high-performance applications requiring high strength, low density, high stiffness, superior damage tolerance, excellent corrosion resistance, superior fatigue cracking resistance and weldability. Click on an image below to view our grades.

Aluminium Lithium Alloy Range.

Elastic Modulus

Lithium additions increase the strength and modulus of aluminium alloys while lowering the density. The main advantage over standard aluminium alloys is a lower density combined with improved elastic modulus.

Resistance to fatigue cracking is also generally superior to standard 2000 and 7000 series aluminium alloys.
