Aluminium and its alloys are preferred materials, because of its varied desirable properties, availability and inexpensiveness. Aluminium alloys exist in several different grades available in the market commercially, from pure (about 99% Al content) to specific varieties based on the impurities contained in it by chemical composition. The properties are differing in nature which can be scientifically seen and justified in different perspectives. The properties such as forming, fracture mode, tensile, etc. can be seen through the metallurgical aspect, chemical aspect, crystallographic texture, forming limits and mechanical properties. The truth of its properties can be viewed by interlinking/correlating nature of its different studies. The purpose of this chapter is to show the correlating nature of different properties of aluminium of same and different grades.
