Modern aluminum and aluminum alloys have many desirable characteristics, low cost, modern appearance, light weight, non-sparking, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, non-magnetic, reflectivity, chemical resistance, ease of fabrication, non-toxic, strength, excellent resistance to corrosive attack by industrial and MARINE ATMOSPHERES... it is no wonder that aluminum has increased so remarkably in use and applications.
Aluminum offers and economical, attractive, natural finish that is for ever free of destructive rust. The surface of aluminum may be changed materially by mechanical finishing and embossing, by etching and electroplating.
Since aluminum weighs only one-third as much as most other production metals, it is the logical material for products that must lifted, moved or flown. Aluminum has higher conductivity per pound than any other metal. The heat transfer efficiency of aluminum is a particularly important feature in applications for the process industries. The resistance to corrosion of aluminum alloys depends on the presence of a very thin film of aluminum oxide that protects the metal surface.
