Default Aluminium alloys

Hello all. Could anyone point me to a web page that describes
the common aluminium alloys and their strength/weaknesses ?

The application is eurorack style panels for indoor use. I'm
particularly interested in "foldability" (allowable curvature
radius, etc.) and mechanical strength.
