Defense advanced aluminium solutions
A tireless proponent of research and innovation, Constellium has developed a key aluminium product offer for military aircraft, armor and other defense applications.
Constellium’s advanced alloys
Constellium is able to provide advanced alloys and solutions for almost every defense application. This capacity reflects our commitment to research and development, our strategy of collaborative customer partnerships for innovation, and the standard of our network of plants in North America and Europe.
Military aircraft alloys
For military aircraft, we supply advanced alloys to provide the best materials solution for each individual aircraft component.
Such alloys include our proprietary alloy 7050, available in plates and extrusions, as well as our new 7140 plate, which offers greater strength, lower density and maintenance, and improved corrosion resistance for many applications.
For armored vehicles, our alloys contribute to offers the highest level of ballistic and blast protection available today. With outstanding welding properties, this alloy can be joined using either metal inert gas (MIG) or friction stir welding. It is highly resistant to stress and exfoliation corrosion and can withstand temperatures of up to 204 degrees Celsius (400 degrees Fahrenheit). The alloy is available in thicknesses from 1.3 cm to 12.7 cm (½” to 5”).
Constellium’s 2195 alloy is highly resistant to both stress and exfoliation corrosion and can withstand temperatures of up to 204 degrees Celsius.
