“Four Amazing Alloys,” Alcan 16mm Film Catalogue (Montreal: Aluminum Company of Canada, Limited: c.1960), 7.
“This film is complimentary to, and can be shown in conjunction with ‘How to Machine Aluminum.’ It shows applications in which the aluminum components have been produced by automatic machining. In an imaginative way, it deals with four alloys, from the least to the most versatile – AA 6061 (Alcan 65s), AA 2024 (Alcan 24s), AA 2017 (Alcan 17s), AA 2011 (Alcan 28s)."
