Alcoa recently announced that ASM International(R) has named it the recipient of the organization's 2002 Engineering Materials Achievement Award. This award recognizes outstanding developments in the application of materials in products that benefit industry, the consumer and society as a whole. Alcoa was recognized for the development and application of new aluminum alloy products for commercial aircraft. These alloys offer airframers enhanced strength, corrosion resistance and fracture resistance, allowing them to improve aircraft performance. "Alcoa is extremely proud to receive this award," said John W. Collins III, executive vice president of science and technology. "The development of these alloys exemplifies the breadth and depth of the fundamental understanding Alcoa's people possess in metallurgical composition, processing, structure, properties and performance, as well as the type of organic product development that results from close customer working relationships."
