The 2024 Aluminum Hex Bar can be used in many different industries. It is commonly used in the aerospace, transportation, computer industries. Some of the applications for the aluminum hex bar include hydraulic valve parts, gears, shafts, pistons, truck wheels and other machined parts. The aluminum hex bar offers many advantages over other materials.
The 2024 Aluminum Hex bar has a very high strength to weight ratio. It also has good fatigue resistance. While the product is not recommended for welding due to possible degradation of the product, it offers highly machinability. It offers good corrosion resistance for use in marine applications.
The 2024 Aluminum Hex bar offers good tensile strength and shear strength. That is one of the reasons why this product is perfect for use in aircraft manufacturing. It is commonly used in the structure of the wings and other aircraft parts that require a lightweight material that can withstand the forces that are exerted on it. The ability to resist corrosion and other fatigue based problems allow the products made from the 2024 Aluminum Hex bars to work properly for a longer period of time.
It does not stand up well to heat however, which is why welding is not recommended. If there is a need for welding the aluminum hex bar, it is highly recommended that only spot welding be used. Heat will weaken the integrity of the protective elements within the bar, increasing the risk of corrosion.
The 2024 Aluminum Hex bar is an extruded product that can come in different lengths to fit any application for the product. It is a very flexible product that will fit a variety of different purposes.
