light and strong, beautiful and recyclable. And it won't
cost you a fortune.
profiles can be made as strong as needed for most applications. Cold-weather
applications are particularly well-served by aluminum because, as temperatures
fall, aluminum actually becomes stronger.
recyclable -- Aluminum
retains a high scrap value. It can be recycled indefinitely without losing any
of its superior characteristics.
Aluminum does not rust. It's protected by its own naturally occurring oxide
film, a protection that can be further enhanced by anodizing or other finishing
Aluminum weighs less by volume than most other metals. In fact, it is about
one-third the weight of iron, steel, copper, or brass. This makes it easier to
handle and less expensive to ship.
Aluminum combines strength with flexibility and can flex under loads or spring
back from the shock of impact.
Highly reflective aluminum can be used to shield products or areas from light,
radio waves, or infrared radiation. This also adds to the aesthetic quality.
Aluminum doesn't emit sparks. This makes it a great choice in applications that
involve explosive materials or that are used in highly flammable environments.
Because aluminum does not acquire a magnetic charge, it's useful for
high-voltage applications, as well as for electronics, especially where magnetic
fields come into play or where sensitive magnetic devices are employed.
Aluminum does not burn and, even at extremely high temperatures, it does not
produce toxic fumes.
accepts finishes --
Aluminum can be finished with a variety of common techniques,
including liquid paint, powder coatings, anodizing, or electroplating.
