Aerospace Aluminium Plate
We stock aerospace aluminium plate products which are available for immediate supply, ex-stock
Aluminium plate is produced to UK aerospace specifications in a wide variety of alloys. Physical and mechanical properties vary a great deal depending on the alloy and the heat treatment employed, making correct product selection critical. Flatness is often another key consideration when selecting the right product for a specific application.
Modern rolling mills are able to supply aluminium plate to many different tempers allowing for maximum flexibility in the design process. Dimensional stability (during and after machining operations) is usually important, especially if significant amounts of metal is removed. Stress relieving at the mill will minimise subsequent distortion.
Various proprietary aluminium plate alloys have been produced by mills seeking to fine tune particular physical or mechanical properties of standard alloys. Many of these mills are approved to aerospace standards and these proprietary alloys should be considered along with those listed below.
