Standards Action Report


June 2020


The Aluminum Association completed registration of two (2) new international wrought alloy designations 3033 and 5181. In addition, the association registered three (3) new alloy tempers designations 6061-T651 Plate, 7099-T731 Plate7048-T6511 Extrusion and moved tentative temper registration 7160-T7351 Plate to final.

Note: The chemical composition limits of the registered alloys since the last edition of the Teal Sheets, Tan Sheets and Yellow Sheets are listed in the addenda of these publications and are available at


Following is a list of new projects initiated since the last report, currently under review by The Aluminum Association’s Technical Committee on Product Standards.  All parties that could be affected are welcome to comment on individual proposals:

Technical Committee on Product Standards October 22, 2020


The majority of the Association’s standards activities are carried out by the Technical Committee on Product Standards (TCPS) in accordance with The Aluminum Association procedures governing these activities.  Product Divisions may also form technical committees to work on specific standards that affect their products.  For example, the Electrical Division has a Task Group of AA Representatives on National Electrical Code Panels.

To request a copy of a project or to discuss placing a representative on TCPS, contact  John Weritz at


Builders have safely used aluminum wiring for more than 40 years.

The National Electrical Code has permitted the use of aluminum wire since 1901, a mere four years after the first recognized national electrical code was published in 1897. AA-8000 aluminum conductors have more than 40 years of reliable field installations.
