Aluminum Alloys

Aluminum Alloys for Various Industries

Aluminum is best known for its lightweight characteristics. When it is cold-worked, the material strengthens by double. It does not oxidize quickly in air due to its microscopic oxide coating on the surface.

Aluminum has hundreds of alloys and tempers, making it useful for a wide variety of applications:

  • Aircraft
  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Shipbuilding

Newer applications of aluminum, such as drive shafts, radiators, cylinder heads and suspension systems, have proven to be advantageous when dealing with weight vs. strength vs. cost considerations.

Aluminum has also proven to be of great value as a forged product with its high-strength and lightweight features. The aircraft, aerospace metal supply and automotive Industries all have used this material in their applications.

Metals Unlimited Aerospace provides aluminum in all mill forms including sheet, strip, plate, foil, round bar, square bar, flat bar, hex bar, tube, pipe and wire. Browse our inventory below.
