One of the most popular screw machine stock alloys available. Tennalum’s Microchip II (T3 temper only) offers excellent machinability and surface finish. The chips from Tennalum’s Microchip II (T3 temper only) are well known for being small in size. Typically used in connectors and fittings, brake pistons, computer parts, knobs, and meter shafts.

With only fair corrosion resistance, this alloy must have protective finishing in most environments and is usually used in Alclad form. High strength, even at relatively high temperatures, satisfactory finishability, fair to good workability and weldability, and good machinability. Typical end uses are missile, aircraft and truck structural’s, fitting and fasteners.

Good machinability and good mechanical properties. Used in rivets, general structural applications, and transportation.

Thought of as the “aircraft” alloy because of its strength, the alloy has only fair corrosion resistance but good machinability. The alloy lends itself only to resistance welding. In the annealed state it has good workability but is only fair to poor in tempers. Typical end uses are aircraft skin and cowls and truck and aircraft.

Is readily weldable and useful for applications over a temperature range of -450° to 600°F. has high fracture toughness and the T* temper is highly resistant to stress – corrosion cracking Used in welded space fuel tanks, supersonic aircraft skin and structure components.

One of the Manganese alloys. Typically used for condensers and Heat exchangers in chemical equipment and pressure vessels. Products include Extruded and Drawn Tube, Pipe, Rod and Bar. Good corrosion resistance, workability and weldability.

Used for applications such as pistons where wear resistance and a low coefficient of thermal expansion are required.

One of the Magnesium alloys. Typically used in Hydraulic Tube and Appliance applications. Good corrosion resistance and good weldability.

Magnesium/Silicon alloy. One of the most popular of the Heat Treatable alloy group. Products include Extruded and Drawn Tube, Pipe, Rod, Bar and Profiles. Good corrosion resistance, good weldability and good anodizing response.

Very high mechanical properties (tensile strength) and good machinability. Offers a high resistance to stress corrosion cracking. Typically used in aircraft structural parts.

High–strength alloy particularly in heavier plate thickness, with superior stress corrosion resistance. Readily welded only by the resistance method. Fair machinability and poor workability. Typically used as plate in the aircraft industry.

One of the highest strength, commercially available alloys with fair corrosion resistance and machinability. Low workability rating and welded only by resistance process. Typically used for aircraft skins, cowls and structures.

Basically, high purity versions of 7075 with tighter control on the iron and silicon for an increase in strength and toughness. Primarily used in the aircraft industry.

Kaiser Aluminum | Plate, Sheet & Coil

Very good corrosion resistance and finishability plus excellent weldablity and a strength level similar to mild steel, this is a popular general-purpose alloy. Machinability is good and, in the annealed state, its workability carries a high rating, staying in the “good” level if heat-treated without aging. Kaiser Aluminum offers aluminum plate, sheet and coil products specially tailored for the aerospace and high-strength market.
