Aluminium

 

World production of aluminium is approaching 20 million tonnes, with it being one of the worlds most abundant metals. The metal lends itself to a wide range of uses and after steel is the most widely used metal. It is light, durable, strong and resistant to corrosion, with electrical and thermal conductivity. 

 

Aluminium can be extruded to complex shapes, can be hot or cold rolled to sheet and plate and as such can be available in a multitude of widths, thicknesses sizes and shapes, ranging from thick plate right down to cooking foil.

 

To further compliment the product range aluminium can be surface rolled giving many functional and attractive patterns such as treadplate and stucco.

The material can also have painting, anodising or polishing to further increase its diversity.

 

With the easily forming, welding and joining, the wide range of sizes and shapes it is available in, aluminium can boast to be being the most cost effective solution to many industrial applications.
