Aluminum Chromium Alloy

AlCr Metal Alloy


Al-80% Cr-20%

Aluminum Chromium is one of numerous metal alloys sold by American

Elements under the tradename AE Alloys. Generally immediately available
in most volumes, AE Alloys are available as bar, Ingot, ribbon, wire, shot,
sheet, and foil. Ultra high purityand high purity forms also include
metal powder, submicron powder and nanoscale, targets for thin
film deposition, and pellets for chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and physical
vapor deposition (PVD) applications. American Elements produces to many
standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec (military grade); ACS,
Reagent and Technical Grade; Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade;
Optical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British
Pharmacopoeia) and follows applicable ASTM testing standards. Typical and
custom packaging is available. Primary applications include bearing assembly,
ballast, casting, step soldering, and radiation shielding.

Aluminum, also known as Aluminium, (atomic symbol: Al, atomic number:

13) is a Block P, Group 13, Period 3 element with an atomic weight of
26.9815386. It is the third most abundant element in the earth's crust and the

most abundant metallic element.

Aluminum's name is derived from

alumina, the mineral from which Sir Humphrey Davy attempted to refine it from
in 1812. It wasn't until 1825 that Aluminum was first isolated by Hans Christian
Oersted. Aluminum is a silvery gray metal that possesses many desirable
characteristics. It is light, nonmagnetic and non-sparking. It stands second
among metals in the scale of malleability, and sixth in ductility. It is extensively
used in many industrial applications where a strong, light, easily constructed

material is needed.

Although it has only 60% of the electrical

conductivity of copper, it is used in electrical transmission lines because of its

light weight. Pure aluminum is soft and lacks strength, but alloyed with small
amounts of copper,magnesium, silicon, manganese, or other elements it
imparts a variety of useful properties. Aluminum was first predicted by Antoine
Lavoisierin 1787 and first isolated by Friedrich Whler in 1827. For more

Chromium (atomic symbol: Cr, atomic number: 24) is a Block D, Group 6,

Period 4 element with an atomic weight of 51.9961.

The number of

electrons in each of Chromium's shells is 2, 8, 13, 1 and its electron

configuration is [Ar] 3d5 4s1. Chromium was first discovered by Louis Nicolas
Vauquelin in 1797. It was first isolated in 1798, also by Louis Nicolas

Vauquelin. The chromium atom has a radius of 128 pm and a Van der Waals
radius of 189 pm. In its elemental form, chromium has a lustrous steel-gray


Chromium is the hardest metal element in the periodic

table and the only element that exhibits antiferromagnetic ordering at room
temperature, above which it tranforms into a paramagnetic solid. The most
common source of chromium is chromite ore (FeCr2O4). Due to its various
colorful compounds, Chromium was named after the Greek word 'chroma'
meaning color. For more information on chromium, including properties, safety
data, research, and American Elements' catalog of chromium products, visit
