Ten Years' Service Experience with Alclad Materials in Aircraft 390149

THIS paper points to the necessity for reliability in materials for aircraft construction and to the increasingly pressing demand for more satisfactory and reliable materials to meet rapidly advancing performance requirements. It goes on to discuss how the Alclad materials have come forward to meet these demands and the tangible results obtained in so doing.
The nature and technical characteristics of the Alclad materials are described with particular emphasis placed on the electrolytic processes which, to a great extent, determine the ability of these materials to resist corrosion.
Laboratory, weather-exposure, and tidewater-immersion tests, demonstrating the outstanding resistance to corrosion of the Alclad materials, are cited.
