Aluminium and aluminium alloys constitute a category of materials that accompanied mankind's evolution . In recent years, new and diversified materials have emerged. This process does not diminish the importance of aluminium, but rather represents a challenge. In order to achieve greater performance it is necessary to know in detail the structure of these materials, as well as the possibilities they offer through the existence of solid state transformations. This paper offers to those interested by the field of materials science the elements required for the knowledge of aluminium and the its alloys, of their properties of use and possibilities of modification in the intended manner.
