The principle alloying element in 7075 extrusion is Zinc. 7075 is one of the highest strength aluminum alloys available and is used in the structure of the aircraft wher the stress is high. It has a high strength-to-weight ratio. It can be formed in the annealed condition and can be heat treated 7075 to multiple tempers including 7075-0, 7075-T6511, 7075-T73511 and 7075-T76511.
Our prints go back to the 1930's. We can make as little as 12ft, and if it's a relatively common shape we will not charge for the die. In addition to the extruded shape we go beyond, offering:
Unlike bar and plate, aerospace profiles tensile and yield vary slightly depending on the wall thickness. Most sites provide limited information. The table below is taken from the 2017 Aluminum Standards and Data
Each alloy has a different temper or hardness. This temper translates into tensile strength and yield strength. Tensile strength is the point at which when the extrusion is pulled apart will snap. Yield strength is the point at which the extrusion is bent beyond its limits.
Aircraft Extrusion Co stocks aluminum extrusions in 2024, 6061 and 7075. With over 20,000 shapes available in solid and hollow. We provide support to machine shops, OEM and support AOG service to airlines, third party maintenace fasilities worldwide.

We work with you to develop the most cost-effective and optimal design for your product with our design engineers and with custom-made dies.
New advanced equipement and design development aircraft extrusion company can now offer rolled extrusions.
CNC Milling up to 4ft x 12ft parts, including seat tracks and secondary oporations aluminum profiles in 7075 and 2024
Standard and none-standard types of seat tracks in stock. We also provide milling services for the round slots on the tracks.
A great selections of formed angles, channels, hats and tee's in both 2024 Clad and 7075 Clad. In addition, we also have forming capabilities
We cut to size 7075 and 2024 extruded profiles, sheet, plate and form section. In-house cutting ops help reduce time, cost and shipping weights
