Queensland, Australia - (http://www.alloyworx.com.au) Aluminium has hundreds of alloys and tempers, making it useful for a very wide variety of applications. Aluminum is the most widely used non-ferrous metal. Over-all, it is the second most widely used metal after iron. Newer applications, such as drive shafts, radiators, cylinder heads, and suspension systems have proven to be most advantageous when dealing with weight versus strength versus cost considerations.
Aluminium is almost always alloyed, which markedly improves its mechanical properties, especially when tempered. For example, the common aluminium foils and beverage cans are alloys of 92% to 99% aluminium.
