Heat Treatable and Non-Heat Treatable Alloys
In high-purity form, aluminum is soft and ductile. Most commercial uses, however, require greater strength than pure aluminum affords. This is achieved first by the addition of other elements to produce various alloys, which singly or in combination impart strength to the metal.
Further strengthening is possible by means which classify the alloys roughly into two categories, non-heat treatable and heat treatable.
