Advantages of Aluminum
It’s light, strong, durable, beautiful and recyclable. And it won’t cost you a fortune. Learn why we love aluminum—and why you will, too.
Aluminum weighs less by volume than most other metals. In fact, it is about one-third the weight of iron, steel, copper, or brass. This makes it easier to handle and less expensive to ship.
Aluminum covers are not subject to damage from termites, carpenter ants or other pests that can destroy wooden covers.
Aluminum profiles can be made as strong as needed for most applications. Cold-weather applications are particularly well-served by aluminum because, as temperatures fall, aluminum actually becomes stronger.
Aluminum does not rust. It’s protected by its own naturally occurring oxide film, a protection that can be further enhanced by anodizing or other finishing techniques.
Aluminum doesn’t emit sparks. This makes it a great choice in applications that involve explosive materials or that are used in highly flammable environments.
Because aluminum does not acquire a magnetic charge, it’s useful for high-voltage applications, as well as for electronics, especially where magnetic fields come into play or where sensitive magnetic devices are employed.
Aluminum combines strength with flexibility and can flex under loads or spring back from the shock of impact.
Highly reflective aluminum can be used to shield products or areas from light, radio waves, or infrared radiation.
Aluminum does not burn and, even at extremely high temperatures, it does not produce toxic fumes.
Aluminum retains a high scrap value. It can be recycled indefinitely without losing any of its superior characteristics.
With aluminum, complex shapes can be realized in one-piece extruded sections without having to use mechanical joining methods. This makes the parts stronger, tighter and leak-free.
