Common Aluminium Alloys

Four-digit OLD BS Tensile Mpa Common Form Characteristics
1050 S1B 100-135 BS1470 Sheet 99.5% Purity, Low Strength with good formability, used in general fabrication work.
1200 S1C 100.140 BS1470 Sheet/Plate 99.5% Purity, Low Strength with good formability, used in general fabrication work. Largely replaced by 1050.
2011 FC1 310 min BS4300 Round Bar Small addition of copper and lead improve strength and give excellent machineabili-ty. Not suitable for welding or anodising.
2014A H15 490+465 BS1474 Bar BS1470 Sheet/Plate Addition of 3.9-5% Cu and other elements give this alloy high strength and moderate machining properties.
5083 N8 275-350 BS1470 Sheet/Plate Addition of 4-4.9% Mg and other elements give this alloy medium strength and good general engineering properties. Suitablility for low temperature applications. Commonly used in plate form for general applications.
5251 N4 200-240 BS1470 Sheet/Plate A medium strength alloy commonly used in sheet form for general applications. Good formability and welding.
6063 H9 130 min BS1474 Bar A low alloyed medium strength alloy for general engineering applications. Commonly available in small or complex sections due to its good formability in manufacture and anodising characteristics.
6082 H30 290 min BS1474 Bar BS1470 Sheet/Plate Magnesium, Manganese, Silicon and other elements give this alloy many characteristics, high strength, good machining and good welding. The most common general engineering alloy in extruded form.
6262 None 180 min BS1474 Bar A medium/high strength alloy having a combination of strength and very good machineability. Suitable for anodising.
7020 H17 300 min BS4300 Round Bar Addition of 4-5% Zn, Zi, Ti and other elements give this alloy high strength and high resistance to fatigue stress. This and other 7000 series alloys are used extensively for aerospace applications.
