Advantages of Aluminium

A unique combination of properties makes aluminium and its alloys one of the most versatile engineering and construction materials available today. Here at Gooding Aluminium, we think that Aluminium is incredible stuff, and are therefore discussing the main advantages.

Aluminium sheets

 

Aluminium is a unique metal with a positive image that naturally appeals to the professional specifier and installer. This incredibly versatile material, when combined with its alloys, can be folded, formed, machined or worked using a wide range of processes.

Thanks to these excellent material properties, aluminium has become widely used within an extensive variety of architectural and related applications.

Advantages of aluminium:

 

Lightweight, aluminium is one of the lightest available commercial metals with a density approximately one third that of steel or copper. It has a high strength to weight ratio which makes it particularly important to transportation industries.

Corrosion Resistance, due to the thin layer of aluminium oxide which forms on the surface of aluminium when it is exposed to air, aluminium has an excellent corrosion resistance.

Aluminium can be left in the mill finished condition in many applications, if additional protection or decorative finishes be required then the aluminium can either be anodised or painted.

Strength, the mechanical properties of pure aluminium can be markedly increased by the addition of alloying elements and tempering. In order to help suit your needs better, you can choose the alloy with the most suitable characteristics for your application.
