Aluminium alloy, in its usable form, is a relatively new metal that is produced using an electrolytic process. In its pure form it has only a few limited uses, however, when it is alloyed it becomes an extremely versatile and widely used material. Industrial sectors such as aviation, medical, scientific and electronics all make use of the key properties of aluminium.
The alloying elements used are dependant on the finished article required. Additions of copper, iron, zinc, nickel, tin, lead, magnesium and silicon are all used to improve its attributes. Improved strength, corrosion resistance, ductility, workability, weldability and machinability are all possible.
Types of Aluminium AlloyThere are two main types of alloyed aluminium; wrought and cast. Wrought alloys (rolled, extruded or forged) are strengthened either by work-hardening or by heat treatment, with different alloying elements being added to achieve the required strength. Cast alloys are usually very different in their composition to their wrought counterparts, as suitable composition is required for the production of effective casting materials.
The wrought alloys are also divided into two groups: heat-treatable and non heat-treatable alloys. Heat-treatable alloys are produced in the main for their strength and durability whilst the non heat-treatable alloys are produced for their ductility, weldability and corrosion resistance.
