Aluminium is one of the most ubiquitous metals in the modern world, thanks to properties like high strength-to-weight ratio, high thermal and electrical conductivity, atmospheric corrosion resistance, workability and formability. These properties make it an ideal choice in applications as varied as the aerospace and construction industries, high-tech electronics, high voltage power lines, and more. These characteristics, along with its high recyclability, help improve life-cycle management, and reduce the overall economic and environmental impact of its application.

This material data has been provided by Matmatch.

"Typical" values were obtained via a literature search. "Predicted" values were imputed via artificial intelligence technology. While we have placed significant efforts in ensuring data accuracy, "typical" and "predicted" data should be considered indicative and verified by appropriate material testing. Please do contact us if additional information on the the predicted data method is required.
All metrics apply to room temperature unless otherwise stated. SI units used unless otherwise stated.
Equivalent standards are similar to one or more standards provided by the supplier. Some equivalent standards may be stricter whereas others may be outside the bounds of the original standard.
