What is this standard about? 

Aluminium extrusions are used in a wide range of sectors including construction, automotive, aerospace and general uses. This revised standard covering the mechanical properties of aluminium and aluminium alloys is a crucial part of the BS EN 755 series.

Who is this standard for?

  • Producers, suppliers and users of aluminium and aluminium alloys with a focus on extruded rod/bar, tube and profiles
  • Aluminium extruders and stockers
  • Foundries and foundry suppliers
  • Casting producers, designers and buyers
  • Design engineers
  • Those involved in related product development and R&D

Why should you use this standard? 

 It specifies the mechanical property limits relating to aluminium extrusions and agreed between supplier and purchaser. It takes into consideration new materials and includes the most updated mechanical limits resulting from tensile testing aluminium and aluminium alloy extruded rod/bar, tube and profile.

What’s changed since the last update?

The standard has been systematically reviewed by experts to ensure its continued market relevance. Technical changes include: 

  • An update of the list of mechanical properties tables relevant to aluminium and aluminium alloys 
  • Alloy EN AW-2618A [AlCu2Mg1.5Ni] is added in a new Table 9
  • A correction is made to alloy EN AW-6026 [Al MgSiBi] in a new Table 36
  • Alloy EN AW-6056 [Al Si1MgCuMn] is added in a new Table 38
