One of the most versatile metals on the market today is aluminium. Its popularity is mainly due to the many advantages it offers the end user:
- Aluminium can be melted, cast, formed and machined (such as perforated aluminium or aluminium pipes)
- It conducts electricity
- It is very light
- Aluminium is very reflective
- Aluminium is highly corrosion resistant
- It is 100% recyclable
- It is ductile and has a low melting point and density so products can be formed to virtually any design
Because of these properties, aluminium also makes an excellent alloy constituent. Aluminium bronze for example offers greater strength and corrosive resistance in comparison to other bronze alloys. It is also tarnish resistant and has low oxidation rates at high temperatures.
The low rate of corrosion in atmospheric conditions and in sea water make aluminium bronze the perfect choice for many engineering projects especially those for engine components, sea water-related components, petrochemical uses and any project that requires anti-corrosive properties.
All these factors make aluminium a very attractive choice. Its versatility coupled with its corrosion resistance and green credentials (in so far as it is 100% recyclable) have ensured it remains a popular metal of choice.
