- Used in transport applications, including marine, automotive and aviation, due to their high strength-to-density ratio
- Rock climbing equipment
- Bicycle components
- Hang glider airframes
- Greyish-white in colour, it is malleable, ductile and conductive to heat and electricity
- A thin inert film of oxide protects the metal surface from further attack, thus giving the metal a form of resistance to corrosion.
- This film of oxide can be further thickened by a process known as the anodizing
- Welding can be made possible.
- Anodized or spray coating possible to achieve different architectural effects
- With its non-corrosive and good mechanical properties, each grade of Aluminium has a high range of applications.
- Aluminium also possesses very high malleability, enabling it to be produced into a very thin foil.
