535.0 (7Mg) Aluminum Alloy

  • Former designations. Almag 35.
  • Former AMS. 4238A, 4239
  • Former ASTM. GM70B
  • UNS number. A05350
  • Government. QQ-A-601, QQ-A-371
  • Description: 535 is commonly not heat treated. We typically always use 535.2 aluminum alloy. The aluminum alloy 535, better known as Almag 35 is a light weight high strength alum. magnesium alloy that doesn’t require heat treatment. Almag 35 offers excellent corrosion resistance, machines well and is also dimensionally stable making it great for products such as instruments or marine alum. sand castings amongst other uses.
