What do you know about Aluminium?

Aluminum 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 absolute versatility of aluminum.
It is a metal which may be cast, rolled, drawn or extruded and may be finished by polishing, anodizing 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 aluminum is compared to other metals. 
Most importantly, being readily recyclable and with one of the highest recycling rates of any metal, aluminum is an environmentally sustainable material

Is Aluminium ‘Environmentally Friendly’?

Yes. Whilst aluminum requires a significant amount of energy to be produced initially, its high strength-to-weight ratio plays a crucial role in producing lighter vehicles and other forms of transport, and also reduces fuel consumption without compromising performance and safety.
The use of lightweight aluminum components in a vehicle can save six to twelve times the energy taken to produce the primary aluminum used in its construction. For other vehicles, such as trains, ferries, and aircraft, the potential savings are even greater.
In the case of building and construction, the use of lightweight materials such as aluminum can significantly reduce environmental impact and provide substantial reductions in energy consumption over the life of the building where it is then 100% recyclable 

Production Process

Aluminum is a silver-white metal obtained from bauxite, a rock composed of more than 50% aluminum hydroxides formed by weathering in tropical regions.
Aluminum is the earth’s third most available element (after oxygen and silicon) and the most abundant metal in the earth’s crust (8% by mass).
Aluminum bearing compounds have been used by man from the earliest times. Pottery was made from clays rich in hydrated silicate of aluminum and at one point in history aluminum was so valuable that rulers and the wealthy preferred cutlery made of aluminum instead of gold.
Today more aluminum is produced each year than all other nonferrous metals combined.
The production of aluminum goes via two different routes: primary aluminum production from ore and recycling aluminum from process scrap and used aluminum products.

Aluminium Uses

Aluminum 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 aluminum 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 airplane you fly in.
The applications for aluminum 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 aluminum alloys can take, allow it equally to being cast into forms, drawn into tube or strand applications, extruded into intricate profiles or rolled into a heavy plate or ultra-thin foils.
In fact, it’s hard to imagine how different our lives would be without aluminum.
