Featuring: all standard and special Al alloys—obsolete, prototype, custom customer specification, AA Specifications, small or large lots, Al-base master alloys.

Although Aluminum is the third most abundant element in the Earth’s crust (after oxygen and silicon), it is a relatively “new” metal, becoming available in commercial quantities – and at a reasonable cost – just over a century ago. This is because Aluminum is produced only by a complex process that uses huge amounts of electricity (approximately 17,000 Kwh per ton of Aluminum). Fortunately, Aluminum is easily recycled, particularly in beverage cans.

Aluminum has many useful properties, it is the lightest of the common metals, has good conductivity and corrosion resistance, and is easier to cast, forge, roll, and extrude than most metals. These properties allow Aluminum and its alloys to find applications across a broad spectrum of uses.

Aluminum is rarely used in its pure, unalloyed state. The most common metals alloyed with Aluminum are Silicon, Magnesium, Copper, Zinc, Nickel, Manganese and Tin. Among the less common are two Aluminum Alloys that contain about 1% Silver. There are over 100 recognized casting alloys, and more than 400 wrought Aluminum alloy designations. Aluminum alloys are very versatile, since stiffness, strength, corrosion resistance, machinability, and other properties can be tailored by alloy selection and heat treatments.
