Aluminium 2000 series

The principal alloying element is copper and can be heat treated to achieve mechanical properties that can exceed mild steel. The downsides are: solution heat treatment required to get optimum properties, corrosion resistance not as good as other aluminium alloys, tend to be brittle and exhibit poorer corrosion resistance than other alloy series.
