Aerospace Aluminium Alloys

Aluminium is a highly popular material in the manufacture of aeroplanes due to a combination of low density and high strength properties making it ideal for mass-produced commercial aircraft.

Aircraft manufacturers prefer to use high-strength aluminium alloys (primarily alloy 7075) to strengthen aluminium aircraft structures. Aluminium typically comprises around 80 percent of an aircraft’s weight (unloaded) and because it is highly resistant to corrosion, it can be left unpainted.
