Aluminium Uses

Aluminium is the material of choice for a range of applications from building and construction materials, transportation, consumer products, electronics and aeronautics just to name a few.

You will find aluminium in safety components of your car, from the seat belt assembly to the anti-lock braking system. You will find it in other places too, your kitchen appliances, your pots and pans, your mobile phone or even in the next aeroplane you fly in.

The applications for aluminium span almost every major industry.

Its strength to weight ratio allows products to be lighter, stronger and more efficient.

The corrosion resistant properties at Aluminium lend itself to harsh environments, providing low maintenance solutions and ensuring extended product lifecycles.

The many forms aluminium alloys can take, allow it equally to being cast into forms, drawn into tube or strand applications, extruded into intricate profiles or rolled into heavy plate or ultra-thin foils.

In fact it’s hard to imagine how different our lives would be without aluminium.

 

What do you know about Aluminium ?

Aluminium is corrosion resistant, strong, lightweight and long lasting.

New developments and technologies spur a constant search for new and improved materials to satisfy the limits of our imagination, yet few to date have surpassed the sheer versatility of aluminium.

It is a metal which may be cast, rolled, drawn or extruded and may be finished by polishing, anodising or coating to achieve a myriad of visual and functional effects.

Consider its abundance, affordability, corrosion resistance and adaptability and you begin to appreciate how truly remarkable aluminium is compared to other metals.

Most importantly, being readily recyclable and with one of the highest recycling rates of any metal, aluminium is an environmentally sustainable material.
