Literature for AADP Mechanical Properties


Alcoa Oil & Gas Develops New Literature for AADP® Mechanical Properties 


Alcoa Oil & Gas announces the availability of new technical literature for our Aluminum Alloy Drill Pipe (AADP®) diameters. The new mechanical properties charts display information that was not included in previous charts, such as combined loading performance graphs. This literature includes charts for all AADP diameters - 4”, 4-1/2”, 5”, 5-1/2”, 5-7/8”, 6-5/8”. Information is also provided for OD, wall thickness, alloy type, field strength, modulus, and cross sectional area, as well as tool joint specifications and mechanical performance strengths.
