Aluminum alloys are not embrittled at low temperatures and become even stronger as the temperature is decreased without significant ductility losses, making them ideal for cryogenic fuel tanks for rockets and launch vehicles. • Fabricability. Aluminum alloys are among the easiest of all metals to form and machine. The high strength 2XXX and 7XXX alloys can be formed in a relatively soft state and then heat treated to much higher strength levels after forming operations are completed. Aluminum is also a consumer metal of great importance.

11. Note the large reduction in strength when it is overaged at 425 F. Aluminum alloys that satisfy both of these conditions are classified as heat treatable, namely the 2XXX, 6XXX, 7XXX, and some of the 8XXX wrought alloys. The precipitation hardening process is conducted in three steps: 1. Heating to the solution heat treating temperature and soaking for long enough to put the elements or compounds into solution. 2. , boiling water) to keep the alloying elements or compounds in solution; essentially this creates a supersaturated solid solution.

In reality, except for a limited number of the 2XXX alloys that are used for welded fuel tanks for launch vehicles, aluminum welded structure is not widely used for aerospace structures. However, as friction stir welding technology matures, this situation could change in the future. The process of strengthening by precipitation hardening plays a critical role in high strength aluminum alloys. Precipitation hardening consists of three steps: (1) solution heat treating, (2) rapidly quenching to a lower temperature, and (3) aging.
