Useful Aluminum Technology Information
American Handforge does not have a FAQ page, but would but would like to pass-on some technical data that has been gleaned from some metallurgical issues and subjects that we feel need to be emphasized for users and buyers of aluminum.
These are a few of the issues that we have experienced and have tried to explain over the years. They are written so the non-technical person may garner a little bit of information about aluminum technology and learn some of the “hidden” insights and jargon metallurgists often use.
If additional topics not covered are of interest, you are encouraged to send in your questions. The listing below is not complete and is an ongoing effort.
