Aluminum is our passion. And our knowledge! Benefit from our knowledge.
Many information can be found in aluminum-manual, which is being completely revised and will soon be available. In the meantime, please use our glossary for useful word explanations.
- Layer thickness
Thickness of the oxide layer after anodizing.
- Layer, galvanic
Electrochemically generated, intrinsic or deposited layer on workpieces, with the aim of improving the surface properties of the component.
Forming or manufacturing processes that subjects the material to a series of tensile and compressive strains to improve flatness.
- Light metal
Metals and their alloys whose density are below 4.5 g/cm3.
- Liquidus line
Limit line in phase diagram of an alloy that separates liquid and solid phases.
