Product Description

Product Description

2618 large diameter aluminum tube2618 is a kind of heat-resistant and deformed aluminium alloy which can be strengthened by heat treatment. Its working temperature can be up to 250 ℃. It is used to manufacture long-term working supersonic aircraft structural parts, such as fuselage and wing skin frame, tail wing, parts and components of low-speed aircraft whose working temperature is not higher than 150 ℃, and parts of jet engine whose working temperature is not higher than 250 ℃.
