The many desirable design properties of aluminium alloy, including its lightweight to strength ratio, makes the material suitable for a varied selection of interior and external applications. To fully assist in the decision making processes it is clearly essential that valuable insight is gained into aluminium’s’ functionality and other performance criteria. Significant advances have also been made in recent years with processing technologies, thereby increasing expectations of improved products and surface finishes at lower cost.

The use of aluminium in building construction involves its close association with many other materials. Aluminium is compatible with most, but there are a few which require some special attention.

Metallic building materials
Chromium plate

Providing the plating is correctly applied there is no acceleration of attack on aluminium.

Copper and copper alloys

Contact between copper and aluminium will result in severe corrosion. Where joining these metals is unavoidable always use plastic ferrules and washers. Water must not be allowed to drip from copper and its alloys onto aluminium.

Iron and steel

For relatively clean rural and urban atmospheres the contact areas of steel should be painted with a bituminous or red oxide / zinc chromate paint. Existing steelwork should have any rust removed by scratch brushing. Lead-free paint should be used on any new steelwork that will be in contact with aluminium.

In extremely corrosive environments, a nonabsorbent gasket, such as PVC or similar should be used in addition to paint.
