What do the automotive, transportation, building, construction and packaging industries have in common? They all employ aluminium. And now these industries can access all ISO standards for aluminium thanks to a new online collection on the Online Browsing Platform (OBP).

Light and extremely versatile, no other metallic element can be used in so many ways across such a variety of domains: in the home, in transport, on land, sea and air, and in industry and commerce. Whether it's car parts or household cooking products, look no further than this latest collection to keep you up to date on all your aluminium needs.

You can now get hold of the complete list of standards for materials used in the production of primary aluminium – which also include standards for alumina, pitch, coke, electrode, ramming paste and fluorides – from a single source.

Access over 100 standards in one convenient location on the OBP and receive:

  • Easy-to-understand technical know-how based on reliable materials data, to aid your business decisions
  • Help with eventual complications of property data resulting from incompatible standards
  • Concrete advice for addressing environmental and health issues related to aluminium

As an added bonus, the collection will further "congeal" the industry, which now boasts USD 40 billion in products each year in the US alone [source: The Aluminum Association]
