Outsourcing metal procurement to Vietnam has been a successful strategy for many companies. It’s not just about the cost but also about the quality of products, specially in aerospace industry

Aerospace industry grade materials in Vietnam

 
There are several different grades of aluminum, but some are more suited to the aerospace industry than others. Those types of aluminum are all popular in Vietnam and are still being practiced continuously by aluminum factories in Vietnam. Examples of such aluminum include:
2024 – The main alloying element of 2024 aluminum is copper. Aluminum 2024 can be used where a high strength-to-weight ratio is required. Like alloy 6061, 2024 is used in wing and fuselage structures because of the tension they receive during operation.
5052 – The highest strength alloy of its kind that cannot be heat-treated, aluminum 5052 offers ideal performance and can be drawn or formed into various shapes. In addition, it provides excellent resistance to saltwater corrosion in marine environments
6061 – This alloy has good mechanical properties and is easy to weld. It is a common alloy for general use and, in aerospace applications, used for wing and fuselage structures. It is especially common in home-built aircraft.
6063 – Often referred to as “architectural alloys”, aluminum 6063 is known for providing exemplary finishing properties and is often the most useful alloy for anodizing applications.
7050 – A top choice for aerospace applications, alloy 7050 exhibits much higher strength and corrosion resistance than 7075. Because it maintains its strength properties at wider sections, 7050 aluminum can maintain resistance to fracture and corrosion.
Aluminum alloy 7068 – 7068 is the strongest alloy currently on the commercial market. Lightweight with excellent corrosion resistance, 7068 is one of the hardest alloys available today.
7075 – Zinc is the main alloying element in 7075 aluminum. Its strength is similar to many sheets of steel, and it has good machinability and fatigue properties. It was originally used on the Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter during World War II and is still used in aviation today.
Aluminum has proven to be very versatile throughout history and continues to be so to this day. The aerospace industry continues to benefit from the alloy's properties to create safer, more reliable, and less expensive aircraft. This will ensure that aluminum will continue to be a valuable material in the future.
