    Anyone here able to help out with a few questions on Aluminum..? Was doing some tests on aluminum temperatures and was wondering if there were certain aluminum types that stayed cooler compared to others. Second question was which ones/types cooled faster. 3rd question, of these types which material could be used for moulding form..?

    I found that when the temperature outside was about 24 degrees celsius that under direct sunlight the temperature of the Aluminum would hit 70 degrees celsius or about 158 degrees Fahrenheit inside of a car. Which material would stay coolest and which material could hold up assuming temperatures on the outside were to hit 50 degrees celsius..?

    I found this on the net

    Many thanks

    I would run two tests, one on Aluminum. A second on A-lou-minium.
