Practical Applications Of Aluminum

Aluminum has many applications in industries such as transportation, packaging, construction, and power transmission. In the transportation industry, the most common uses of hammer and steel sheet piling are sheets, tubes, and castings. Cars, trains, and airplanes all use aluminum in their exteriors. When it comes to packaging, many food and drink containers are made of aluminum and the main reason for this is that the metal doesn’t corrode. This allows the food container to last longer. Apart from packaging and transportation-related uses, the construction industry also relies heavily on aluminum because doors, windows, and roofs can all use this metal. Meanwhile, until now it concerns electricity transmission, transmission lines often use aluminum because oxidation is not a problem.

Aluminum has a wide spectrum of applications from photo frames to turbine blades and nearly everything in between. We provide manufactured aluminum extrusions that are used globally in a wide variety of applications. Physically, chemically and mechanically, aluminum is a metal similar to steel, brass, copper, zinc, lead, or titanium. It can be melted, adjusted, and machined in a way that suits this metal and conducts an electric current. The same equipment and fabrication methods are used for steel. Aluminum is a very light metal with a specific weight of 2.7 g / cm3, about one-third the weight of steel. This costs the production costs with aluminum. Again, use reduces weight and energy consumption while increasing loading capacity. It also reduces comfort and increases comfort. Its strength is unbeatable with the application required by saving the alloy composition. Aluminum-magnesium-manganese alloys are the optimal blend of formability with strength, while aluminum-magnesium-silicon alloys are ideal for car body sheets, which exhibit good age-hardening when undergoing the roast painting process.

Aluminum naturally produces a protective oxide layer that prevents the metal from making further contact with the environment. This is especially useful for applications where it is exposed to corrosion agents, such as in the kitchen and vehicle cabinets. In general, aluminum alloys are less corrosion resistant than pure aluminum, except for marine magnesium-aluminum alloys. Various types of surface treatments such as anodizing, painting, or varnishing can enhance this property.
