   2011 Aluminium

FREE MACHINING ALUMINIUM ALLOY

   PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Known as an ‘FMA’ alloy (or free machining), Alloy 2011 offers excellent general machinability and is suitable for use on automatic lathes. If additional surface protection is required, anodising is recommended as the corrosion resistance of the material is poor. Though weldability is poor, 2011 is considered to be a highly versatile material as it can be used effectively in the production of detailed, complex parts since welding is not normally required.

2011 aluminium is used in a variety of applications including machined parts and fittings.
