Technology - 7050 T6 Aluminum

7050 is an Aerospace aluminum alloy. It is the premier choice for aerospace applications requiring the best combination of strength, stress corrosion cracking resistance and toughness. 7050 exhibits better toughness/corrosion resistance characteristics than 7075. T6 - means that the 3PF frame has been solution heat treated and then artificially aged. This tempering process greatly increases the hardness of the metal. The extrusion must be held in a special jig while it is tempered to stop it from twisting.
