Aluminum Vanadium (AlV) Master Alloy

Vanadium is a specified minor addition to certain wrought aluminum alloys in the international standard AA 2000 and 6000 series, often together with titanium and zirconium. Vanadium raises the recrystallization temperature and inhibits grain growth at elevated temperatures.


The following table includes the composition of different types of aluminum vanadium alloys:
