7075 aluminum is an alloy that contains zinc as its primary alloying element. The earliest use of the alloy can be traced back to the 1930s when the Sumitomo Metal Company developed it for use by Japanese military aircraft. The Mitsubishi Zero fighter plane, famous for its speed and maneuverability relied on the excellent properties of 7075, like strength and low weight.
Today, the 7075 aluminum coil supplied by Inquivix Technologies can be manufactured to the thickness, sizes, tempering, and any other specific requirements of our clients. 7075 is suitable for the manufacture of highly stressed parts that need to withstand fatigue and be resistant to corrosion. Available in aluminum sheet, coil, and a variety of other forms, our 7075 products still have a major role to play in aerospace and industrial manufacturing applications.

Other Aluminum Coil Alloys
7075 is an aluminum alloy that has zinc as its primary alloying element. One of its first uses was for making strong and lightweight aircraft components used in the Mitsubishi Zero fighter plane. The strength of alloy 7075 can be increased by heat treatment, and it is also resistant to corrosion. 7075 aluminum sheet, plate, and coil products are available.
7075 aluminum coil can be used for making aerospace components, rock-climbing equipment, bicycle parts, in-line skating frames, mold tools, gears, and gear shafts.
