E. casting by gravity in a ceramic mould formed around a pattern in wax or expanded polystyrene that is lost during the process; permanent mould casting by gravity or under reduced pressure in a permanent metal mould; and pressure die-casting in a permanent metal mould. The choice of the casting technique has no influence on the corrosion resistance of casting alloys. 6. 6. In European standardisation, casting alloys are designated by five figures, followed by the metallurgical temper designation, such as 42100 T6 (formerly designated as A-S7G03 Y23).

This is because in 1821 Pierre Berthier (1782 –1867), a mining engineer, discovered that the red soil of the village Les-Baux-de-Provence contained 40 –50% alumina, the rest being comprised essentially of iron oxide, Fe3O4 (the source of its red colour), and silica, SiO2. Even though it is widely distributed in the earth’s crust, aluminium did not become an industrial metal before the end of the 19th century. Alumina is one of the most stable of all oxides, with an enthalpy DG of 2 1582 kJ·mol21 (the enthalpy of iron oxide is 2 1015 kJ·mol21).

6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 1 The Advantages of Aluminium With an annual world consumption of 25 million tons, aluminium is the leader in the metallurgy of non-ferrous metals. The production of aluminium has been increasing steadily since 1950 (see Figure A1). The development of applications for aluminium and its alloys, as well as the sustained rise in consumption can be attributed to several of its properties which are decisive criteria in users’ choice of metals, especially in the fields of transport, building, electrical engineering and packaging.
