Wrought Alloys - 8xxx Alloys with Al+Other Elements

  • Heat treatable
  • High conductivity, strength, hardness
  • Electrical,aerospace,bearing applications
  • Representative alloys: 8017,8176, 8081,8280,8090
  • Typical ultimate tensile strength range:17-35 ksi

Fe and Ni provide strength with little loss in electrical conductivity and so are used in a series of alloys represented by 8017 for conductors.Li in alloy 8090 provides exceptionally high strength and modulus and so this alloy is used for aerospace applications where increases in stiffness combined with high strength reduces component weight.
