List of Aluminium Material Data Sheets in the aluSELECT Database

aluSELECT database contains 55 different Wrought and Cast alloys. For each material, the mechanical and physical properties are presented in the form of graphs and tables. You will be asked to log in, if you select the links below. The use of the database is free after self-registration.

1. Wrought Aluminium Alloys

There are 8 series of wrought alloys. These are designated by a 4 digit number that may be preceded or followed by letters. A prefix is used to designate the standard AA of the Aluminium Association or EN AW for the European standard. A suffix "A" indicates a national variation of the alloy, e.g. EN AW-6005A.

The following wrought alloys are in aluSELECT data base:

1000 series are essentially pure aluminium with a minimum 99% aluminium content by weight and can be work hardened.

2000 series are alloyed with copper and can be precipitation hardened.

3000 series are alloyed with manganese, and can be work hardened.

4000 series are alloyed with silicon and rarely used in practice

5000 series are alloyed with magnesium, and offer superb corrosion resistance. Most 5000 series alloys include manganese as well.

6000 series are alloyed with magnesium and silicon, and can be precipitation hardened.

7000 series are alloyed with zinc, and can be precipitation hardened to the highest strengths. Most 7000 series alloys include magnesium and copper as well.

8000 series are alloyed with other elements which are not covered by other series.

2. Cast Aluminium Alloys:

There are usually two designation systems:

  1. Numerical Alloy Designation: A 5 digit numerical system is used like shown in 1.
  2. Alloy designation by chemical symbols, like EN AC-Al Si7Mg0.6
