Effect of hydrogen on aluminum


"Does hydrogen have any effect on aluminium as it has on steel" This is a part of project on pressure vessel design. I am doing my project on "fire extinguisher". In that I have selected aluminium as the material. So, I have to consider the effect of hydrogen on aluminium.

I have to give my presentation on monday(coming).

I think you can understand my point here.

Waiting for your reply,

Sincerely yours ,

Aluminum will not react with hydrogen at and around room temperature. Hydrogen can permeate aluminum at elevated temperatures though. This all depends on pressures, temperatures etcetera.
