Advantages Of Aluminium
After iron, aluminium is now the second most widely used metal in the world. This is because aluminium has a unique combination of attractive properties - low weight, high strength, superior malleability, easy machining, excellent corrosion resistance and good thermal and electrical conductivity are amongst aluminium's most important properties. Aluminium is also very easy to recycle.
Uses Of Aluminium
Today Aluminium and its alloys are used extensively in almost all industries. Aluminium is used in aviation, heavy engineering machinery, cooking utensils, cans, construction fittings, transportation and packaging. It has managed to replace steel in various fields because of its light weight, robustness and lesser time it takes to fabricate. Aluminium also does not rust.
Aluminium Extrusion Process
Extrusion is defined as the process of shaping material, such as aluminum, by forcing it to flow through a shaped opening in a die. Extruded material emerges as an elongated piece with the same profile as the die opening. Using this process it is possible to create complex cross sections with an excellent surface finish.
