Aluminum

Aluminum is a metal with several advantages:

 

Very low specific gravity, high strength, and excellent workability, which together make Aluminum very useful. 
Aluminum’s many uses include: Profiles, packaging, heat exchangers, acoustic ceilings, cooking pots, ships, electronic equipment and many, many more.

* Aluminum alloys are supplied in four hardness levels:
Soft, quarter hard, half hard and hard.
* Materials requiring high tensile strength undergo tempering.
* Anodizing – Alloys can be anodized to treat the surface layer of the metal. Both commercial and decorative anodizing are available.
 

                     Material Status Markings              

Thermal Treatments Monitoring
F = Moldings, ingots, rolled products No monitoring
O = Soft material Tempering to the minimum hardness
H = Hardened material Tempering under stress
W = Solution treatment to an unstable state Natural aging
T = Solution treatment to a stable state After the O and F states
