    Aluminum

    Published: June 01, 2008
    Authors: F.C. Campbell, Editor

    Aluminum has many outstanding attributes that lead to a wide range of applications, including: 1) Good corrosion and oxidation resistance; 2) High electrical and thermal conductivities; 3) Low density; 4) High reflectivity; 5) High ductility and reasonably high strength; and 6) Relatively low cost.

    Introduction to Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys

    Published: December 01, 1998
    Authors: J.R. Davis, Editor

    The unique combinations of properties provided by aluminum and its alloys make aluminum one of the most versatile, economical, and attractive metallic materials for a broad range of uses--from soft, highly ductile wrapping foil to the most demanding engineering applications. Aluminum alloys are second in use only to steels as structural metals.
