Aluminum 7075

A cast aluminum plate often used for tooling and base plates.


7075 are often used in transport applications due to their high Specific strength, including marine, automotive and aviation.[5][10] These same properties lead to its use in rock climbing equipment, bicycle components, inline skating-frames and hang glider airframes are commonly made from 7075 aluminum alloy. Hobby-grade RC models commonly use 7075 and 6061 for chassis plates.  It is also commonly used in shafts for lacrosse sticks,  camping knife, and fork sets. It is a common material used in competition yo-yos as well.

Due to its high strength, low density, thermal properties, and its ability to be highly polished, 7075 is widely used in mold tool manufacturing. This alloy has been further refined into the other 7000 series alloys for this application, namely 7050 and 7020.
