Aluminium 2011



Alloy aluminium 2011 is a high mechanical strength material that machines exceptionally well. It is well suited to use in automatic lathes, as it is a free machining alloy.
The excellent machining characteristics of aluminium 2011 allow it to be cut into complex and detailed shapes successfully.


Aluminium 2011 is typically used for the following applications…

·Appliance parts & trims
·Automotive trims
·Fasteners & fittings

Aluminium 2011 is available from us in bar in the following sizes…
In the drawn condition:
3mm dia - 3” dia

In the extruded condition:20mm dia- 180mm dia
