All About Aluminium
Aluminium is abundant (There are over 300 years worth of current production. In reserves that have already been discovered) light weight, resistant to corrosion; it is high strength and a good conductor of electricity and heat.
It is one of the most recycled materials in the world. Each tonne of secondary aluminium that is recycled shows a saving of 95% of the energy required to produce the same tonne from primary metal. This in turn helps us fight against, waste and energy consumption.

Aluminium has about 1/3rd the density and stiffness of steel and is easily machined, cast or extruded. It is ideal for the following applications:
Transportation: Automobiles, aircraft, trucks, marine vessels, bicycles and other uses where the weight is important.
It is also used in yacht masts, street lamps, walking poles and baseball bats to name but a few.
Aluminium has been used in conjunction with copper as an alloy in monetary coins in France, Italy, Poland, Finland, Romania and Israel.
It is also been used for casting statues. Like the statue of Anteros in Piccadilly Circus in London. Which was cast in 1893.
