AA: Aluminum Association

AA, the Aluminum Association, is a nonprofit organization based in Arlington, Virginia. It is a trade association for the aluminum production, fabrication, and recycling industries, as well as their suppliers. AA publishes global standards, industry statistics, and expert knowledge to companies and policy makers. AA standards describe the composition, mechanical properties, and nomenclature of aluminum alloys in the United States. The association was created in 1933, when 13 aluminum companies met to set up codes for aluminum manufacturers, and currently holds 16 employees. The seven ANSI H35 standards the Aluminum Association develops are approved by ANSI Accredited Standards Committee H35. Standards from AA are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: StandardsSubscriptions@ansi.org or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

YELLOW SHEETS - Tempers Alum./Alloy Prod. Online

The 44-page Yellow Sheets list tempers for aluminum and aluminum alloy products registered with The Aluminum Association by individual producers, which are not contained in the Association's "Aluminum Standards and Data." Information on mechanical property data and other metallurgical characteristics specific to the alloy-temper combinations of numerous semi-fabricated products as well as a number of cast products that have been registered with The Aluminum Association are included.  This document has been extensively revised to include numerous new registrations, revisions to the previously registered product information, and the deactivation of numerous obsolete products. Additionally, the temper registration procedures have been revised to clarify and expand on the registration rules and now include the criteria for registering press solution heat-treated materials as well as registration of products with tentative properties.
