About Aluminum Alloy. Aluminum is a metallic element, with atomic number 13, a post-transition metal, member of group 13 of the periodic table. Aluminum is the most abundant metal in Earth’s crust, comprising 8.8% by weight. It is, however, rarely found in its free form, being present in over 270 minerals and ores. It was first isolated in 1824, followed in 1886 by the development of the first industrial production process, which is still widely used currently, the Hall-Héroult process. Aluminum is the third most commercialized metal worldwide, behind only iron and copper. This is explained by its ability to form alloys with remarkable low density in conjunction with high strength and corrosion resistance.

Among the main wrought alloys widely employed are the 5000, 6000, and 7000 series. The 5000 series, featuring magnesium, exhibits excellent weldability and corrosion resistance. Silicon is added to the 6000 series, resulting in alloys known for their structural integrity and versatility, commonly applied in high stress applications. Finally, the 7000 series, strengthened with zinc, is favored for its high fatigue strength and corrosion resistance. As for cast alloys, the A380 and A383 are prominent alloys within this category. A380 has excellent fluidity and castability, while the higher level of silicon and lower copper content of A383 give it better corrosion resistances, ease of casting, good mechanical properties, and dimensional stability.

Aluminum Alloy Handling. Aluminum alloys, renowned for their versatility, face specific considerations in storage and transportation. While the alloys inherit the lightweight advantage of aluminum, their varied compositions demand careful handling. Intermediate alloy forms, such as extrusions or sheets, are transported in bulk via ships, trains, and trucks. Due to potential reactivity and corrosion susceptibility in certain alloy combinations, storage practices often entail controlled environments and protective coatings. This ensures the preservation of alloy properties during transit and underscores the need for precision in the storage and transportation of these specialized materials.
