Areas of application of aluminum in the world aviation industry
The wide use of aluminum in the production of aircraft and air components is due to its fairly widespread nature (about 8%), as well as the optimal combination of its chemical, physical and mechanical parameters.
In particular, all aluminum alloys are characterized by low density (2700 kg / m 3), relatively high strength, good electrical and thermal conductivity, manufacturability in plastic and mechanical processing, corrosion resistance in chemically aggressive environments. This allows the active use of aluminum in the manufacture of both aircraft and engines to them.
There are four series of aluminum alloys used in aircraft construction — 2ххх, Зххх, 5ххх, 6ххх and 7ххх. In this case, the 2xxx series is intended for operation at relatively low operating temperatures and with an increased fracture toughness during operation. Oil, air and hydraulic systems of air transport use aluminum alloys of the series Zxxx, 5xxx and 6xxx. Of the alloys that are part of the 7xxx series, parts manufactured operating at low temperatures are manufactured, as well as with a constant risk of corrosion. The test loads for the 7xxx alloys are the largest.

Aluminum alloys in the aircraft industry of Russia
In the manufacture of a variety of aviation equipment, high-strength aluminum alloys containing zinc, magnesium, manganese and copper, as well as alloys of lower strength and hardness (except aluminum, they contain magnesium and zinc) are strengthened by thermal treatment. Such alloys are used in the manufacture of the skin and internal set of structural elements of the airframe, which are usually referred to as the fuselage, wing, keel, etc.
A number of aluminum alloys that have good weldability are used in the design and manufacture of composite type fuselages. These alloys include magnolia — alloys of aluminum with magnesium and manganese (AMg5, AMg6). In the manufacture of seaplanes, the use of corrosion-resistant aluminum alloys such as 1915, B92, and 1420 is indispensable. Aluminum alloys with a lithium chemical composition have recently been developed and are being actively used. This metal increases the cryogenic resistance of alloys.
The company Elektrovek-steel offers to buy at an affordable price aluminum alloys used in aircraft construction. The supplier guarantees the timely delivery of products to any point specified by the customer.
