Targeted adaptations using alloying engineering produce optimal properties in the material: aluminium is easy to process, offers great freedom in design, with a long lifetime and good resistance to weathering. These outstanding characteristics are further enhanced through a suitable surface treatment. Anodic oxidation satisfies the widest variety of demands on the material.
Some of the key advantages of aluminium are:
- Low specific gravity
- High mechanical strength
- Good thermal and electrical conductivity
- High reflectivity
- Non-permeable to gases
Aluminium products can be melted down any number of times, with the recovered aluminium remaining of a consistently good quality.
