UES developed SHS AL 7042 aluminum alloy to have superior mechanical properties in temperatures ranging from -269˚ C to 100˚ C. Furthermore, this alloy is over 30% tougher and stronger and has a better stress-corrosion resistance than comparable aerospace alloys. Extruded 7042-T6 products have ~30% higher specific strength than Ti alloys. Forged products made of 7042-T6 are 25-35% stronger and tougher than similar forgings made of 7075-T6 and 7050-T74.
