Aluminium

Aluminium is an extremely versatile metal and it is recognised for its lightweight, durability, and flexibility which makes it a key engineering material. The key features of Aluminium mean that it can be manufactured into a variety of shapes and then fabricated to suit a range of applications.

Given that aluminium is not a particularly strong metal on its own, it is frequently utilised as an alloy. Copper, manganese, magnesium, and silicon alloys are light but robust. They play a crucial role in the development of vehicles like aeroplanes.

Because it is a good conductor of electricity, aluminium is frequently used in transmission lines. Weight for weight is almost twice as good a conductor and less expensive as copper.

Aluminium creates a highly reflective covering for heat and light as it evaporates in a vacuum. Unlike a silver coating, it does not tarnish. Telescope mirrors, ornamental paper, containers, and toys are just a few of the items that can benefit from these aluminium coatings.

Key features of aluminium include:

Light weight- The strength of Aluminium can be adapted using different alloys. This makes Aluminium the first choice for a range of applications including building cladding or artwork.

Corrosion resistance- Aluminium is a corrosion resistant metal that naturally generates a protective coating, the natural oxide layer helps protect the surface from corrosion.

Electrical and thermal conductivity- Aluminium is a corrosion resistant metal that naturally generates a protective coating, the natural oxide layer helps protect the surface of the metal from corrosion.

Reflectivity and ductility- It is a good reflector, it is used in light fittings due to its ability to reflect light.

Recyclability Aluminium is 100% recyclable and it retains all of its original properties.
