Aluminium Alloy 7075 offers the highest strength of the common screw machine alloys. The superior stress corrosion resistance of the T173 and T73511 tempers makes alloy 7075 a logical replacement for 2024, 2014 and 2017 in many of the most critical applications. The T6 and T651 tempers have fair machinability. Alloy 7075 is heavily utilized by the aircraft and ordnance industries because of its superior strength.
