WHAT IS ALUMINIUM?

Aluminium is the most widely used non-ferrous metal. Global production of aluminium in 2015 was 50.9 million tonnes. It exceeded that of any other metal except iron (837.5 million tonnes)

Aluminium is almost always alloyed, which markedly improves its mechanical properties, especially when tempered. The main alloying agents are copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese, and silicon. Aluminium is the chosen material for many specialist sectors due to its very high resistantance to corrosion, and light weight properties

The following examples are typically fabricated in Aluminium

- Construction - Windows, Doors, roof ranels & trimming

- Food Industry - Processing equipment, catering equipment, container / storage

- Automotive - Many forms of transport include high levels of Aluminium parts
