Aluminium properties and uses.
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. These qualities make it suitable for use in aircraft, marine and train construction, engine parts, window frames and many other applications.
