NEW! Automotive Joining Manual
A comprehensive 280 + page manual, providing technical details on joining aluminum automotive components is now available. An effort of the Aluminum Association, the European Aluminium Association and the AEC, the manual covers welding, adhesive and mechanical joining technologies. 
  EPD for Aluminum Extrusions
Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) have been called "Environmental Nutrition Labels" for materials and products, describing the potential environmental impact of a product through its life cycle. AEC is currently developing an EPD covering aluminum extrusion produced in the U.S. and Canada. It will be the most comprehensive assessment of extrusion’s environmental footprint.

How it's Made: Transforming Aluminum into Products
