What is aluminium and what is it used for?
Aluminium is the most abundant metal on the planet and has many properties that make it one of the most popular metals for fabrication work.
It is light, strong, corrosion resistant, ductile, simple to recycle, and is easy to drill, cut, weld, solder, and machine. With a great strength to weight ratio, it is particularly well suited for use in many engineering applications including aircraft, marine and train construction, engine parts, window frames, garden structures, interior design, DIY projects, and many more.
