Aluminium constitutes about 8% of our planet’s crust making it the most abundant metal on Earth. Aluminium is all around us.
Nearly 75% of all the aluminium ever produced is still in use today.
Some of the key properties that make aluminium an essential element in our lives include its:
- High corrosion resistance
- Good thermal and electrical conductivity
- Impermeability and odourless nature
- Good reflective properties.
Together these properties ensure aluminium’s widespread presence in our lives. It is used in sectors such as building and construction, consumer goods, packaging, transportation, cosmetic packaging, pharmaceutical industries and chemical applications.
“Aluminium’s properties make it a valuable, competitive and sustainable material.”
New, innovative and competitive applications for aluminium are continuously being developed.
