UTS: 400 MPa, density 2.78 gm/cc
Industry standard 7005 using zinc and magnesium alloying elements to provide strong, light frames. We recommend that frames are aged after welding to the T6 condition to achieve optimum properties. Unlike 6061, this alloy does age-harden over time, reducing the need for a full frame heat-treatment.
7005 is available as hydroformed and/or butted tubing for OEM customers only.
