L105 is a high strength aluminium alloy tube product supplied in the T4 temper which retains its strength after heat treatment.
It is a 4 - 5% copper alloy and is supplied in the fully heat-treated condition (solution heat treated & artificially aged). L105 aluminium alloy tube is normally stocked in the T5 temper in pipe/tube form. The material offers very good machinability. L105 is used widely in the aerospace and defence sector in the manufacture of high strength components.
L105 aluminium tubes can be hard anodised and the material is fully heat treatable - the alloy offers good strength after heat treatment. The product is also easily plated.
