Aluminum Science and Technology is a new addition, as Volume 2A, to the ASM Handbook series and is part of an effort to produce volumes dedicated to important classes of engineering materials. The first volume dedicated to an important material class is ASM Handbook, Volume 1A, Cast Iron Science and Technology (2017). Volume 2A continues in this effort, building not only from the ASM Specialty Handbook: Aluminum and Aluminum Alloys (1993) but also the classic three-volume set Aluminum edited by Kent R. Van Horn (American Society for Metals, 1967). The extent of coverage also necessitates ASM Handbook, Volume 2B, Properties and Selection of Aluminum Alloys for publication in 2019.

ASM International and the Board of Trustees are grateful for the work and dedication of volunteer editors, authors, and reviewers who devoted their time and expertise to develop a reference publication of the highest technical and editorial quality. A special note of thanks is offered to the volume and division editors and their commitment to present a publication of the highest technical and editorial quality. The result is a comprehensive reference work that will help readers solve problems and gain insights.
