What’s special about it? Aluminum is strong, light, durable, flexible, very versatile, waterproof, corrosion resistant, an excellent electrical conductor, not flammable, an abundant element in the earth’s crust and infinitely recyclable.
The mechanical resistance of pure aluminum is limited but when mixed with other elements, aluminum is transformed in a very strong metal. Some alloys can also strengthen and harden it through a thermal treatment, which increases its mechanical resistance in a spectacular way.
Aluminum is one of the most versatile and abundant raw materials that is found in the earth’s crust. An important advantage of the aluminum is its sustainability and the fact that in can be recycled several times, in a quick, efficient way and at low cost without any performance or quality decrease. Aluminum recycling offers an energy saving and a considerable decrease of the comparative cost of producing primary aluminum and many other competitive materials.
Many beneficial aluminum properties make it the solution preferred by thousands of products in different industries. Aluminum touches our life in uncountable times in an invisible way.
