What's New: Product Updates

September 2021 - ASMD/AHAD - Al 2198 added to ASMD and AHAD

Al 2198 is a third generation Al-Cu-Li alloy developed for aerospace applications. At the 1% Li alloy addition, it offers as much as a 3% density reduction and a 6% increase in elastic modulus over conventional high strength Al-Cu alloys not containing lithium. It is currently used for the fuselage of the Airbus A350XWB and the reusable second stage of the Space X Falcon 9 rocket as well as other applications.

August 2021 - TPMD - 42 New Materials Added to TPMD
