Description / Abstract:

Paralleling the growth of our industrial society are mounting corrosion losses and costs of corrosion control systems. The soaring cost of maintenance labor, alone, demands increased attention to low cost, corrosion resistant materials such as aluminum.

There is equal incentive for the use of processing, handling and storage equipment basically compatible with sensitive products.

Frequently, the materials engineer is faced with a choice of technically suitable, available materials for a given application. Where aluminum is suitable, it usually offers the lowest total costs.

This publication is intended to assist in determining the suitability of aluminum alloys for specific applications and in achieving their potential economy through proper specification and use.
