Aluminum Metal

Aluminum is a silver-colored, low density metal, used in a variety of commercial applications.

Unalloyed Aluminum is ductile, exhibits moderate strength, and is very resistant to corrosion under most circumstances.

Aluminum can be dramatically strengthened by the addition of appropriate alloying elements (Cu, Mg, Mn, Si, etc.) and subsequent heat/work treatments.

It is commonly used in both wrought and cast forms.

The low density of this metal results in its extensive use in the aerospace industry, and in other transportation fields. Its resistance to corrosion leads to its use in food and chemical handling (cookware, pressure vessels, etc.) and to architectural uses.
