Aluminum Association Releases 2017 Edition of Aluminum Standards & Data

The Aluminum Association has released the latest version of its longest running publication, Aluminum Standards and Data 2017: U.S. Customary Edition. "The book, which was last updated in 2013, is a guide for those that use and produce aluminum and includes comprehensive information on all commonly available alloys and mill products," said a company spokesperson.

This latest edition is regularly updated by the association's Technical Committee on Product Standards (TCPS) to reflect changes in the industry. The TCPS group is comprised of technical standards experts from aluminum-producing member companies. The new edition also reflects the changes to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards maintained by the association.

Aluminum Standards and Data 2017: U.S. Customary Edition contains information on mechanical properties, tolerances, terminology, limits, comparative characteristics, density and toughness of the most common aluminum alloys and product forms. Having the latest information on commonly used aluminum mill products requirements provides a standard platform for discussions with customers and producers to help select the best solution to meet engineering design requirements.

Key updates to the 2017 edition include:

  • Updated illustrations that are clearer, more precise and easier to understand
  • Clarified usage of non-bilateral tolerances to ensure industry wide acceptance
  • Additions to the color code list for easy identification of aluminum mill products
  • Latest popular new alloys
  • New and modified definitions
  • Latest ANSI H35.1, H35.2 and H35.4 updates.

The U.S. version can be purchased as a download or a hard copy from the association's bookstore at
