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.
- Tensile strength
Value determined in a tensile test; the maximum amount of tensile stress that it can take before failure, for example breaking.
- Tensile test
Destructive material for determining the mechanical properties of tensile strength, yield strength, elongation at break and breaking constriction, standardized according to DIN EN 10002.
Metallographic structure of metals after a deformation.
- Thermal conductivity
Ability of a material to transport thermal energy by means of heat conduction.
- Thermal expansion coefficient
Describes changes in the geometry of a material when subjected to temperature changes.
- Threaded insert
Hollow cylinders with internal and external thread to reinforce / strengthen screw connections.
