ATTRIBUTES OF ALUMINIUM

WHAT MAKES ALUMINIUM GREAT

ATTRIBUTES OF ALUMINIUM

The many outstanding properties of aluminium lead to its use in a wide range of applications. Even though aluminium is one of the earths most common elements, it must be sourced from the Bauxite ore. The ore undergoes a production process that extracts the aluminium in a pure form.
Pure aluminium is combined with various alloying elements in order to give it the wide range of properties. These elements give aluminium the specific properties required for the various applications.
The physical properties of aluminium give it the following attributes:
• NON CORROSIVE – aluminium generates a thin oxide layer which acts to protect it.
• LIGHT WEIGHT – aluminium’s weight is about one third the weight of steel.
• GOOD ELECTRICAL & HEAT CONDUCTOR – manufacturing power cables and fitting, heat sinks.
• EASILY MACHINED – using typical machine shop machines.
• DURABLE
• NON MAGMETIC & NON SPARKING
• GOOD SURFACE FINISH
• RECYCLABLE – 100% recyclable to its virgin form. Aluminium is the easiest to recycle of all the structural metals.
