Aluminium is known for its shiny finish, resembling silver, both in its visual appearance and colour, and in its ability to reflect light.
What is Aluminium used for?
Aluminium is one of the most commonly utilised metals in the world, second only to steel. We can find it used around us as we go about our daily lives – in household items, technology and mobile devices, transportation, machinery and construction.
What makes Aluminium so popular?
Aluminium may be all around us, but what is it that makes it so popular? This question can be answered by looking to its natural properties.
It is lighter than almost every other metal in the world, yet still manages to strike a balance between malleability and strength. Its strength to weight ratio is considered superior to the same ratio for steel. It’s this balance makes it an incredibly useful and versatile material.
Aluminium also has an extraordinary affinity with oxygen, so when it is exposed to the air it develops a thin, hard layer of aluminium oxide. This aluminium oxidation makes it incredibly corrosion-resistant, adding further to its popularity.
The resistance and durability can be improved further through the finishing process, for example by anodising or painting the aluminium.
