2014 aluminum is one of the strongest Heat-treatable alloys for screw machine applications. 2014 has good mechanical properties and has good weldability, but it has only fair corrosion resistance. It can be substituted for 2024 in many applications.
Applications: Screw Machine, Aerospace, General applications.
Aging: Artificial aging is most commonly used for this alloy. Tempering is widely used for most applications, T-4/T451, T-6/T651 are most commonly used.
