  • Introduction Rare and expensive a century ago, aluminium has since been identified as the most common metal on earth, forming about eight percent of the earth's crust. It is the third most plentiful element known to man. Only oxygen and silicon (sand) exist in greater quantities.  Atomic no -13  White silver color. 
  • Extraction of aluminium
  • The Aluminum Association Alloy and Temper Designation System.
  • Temper designation system
