Aluminum is one of the most versatile materials available for engineering and construction purposes. Although it is light-weight, aluminum still boasts great strength and corrosion resistance. Aluminum products, such as tube or sheet, can be easily formed and machined, making it a simple metal type to work with. It’s commonly used in creating aircrafts, tanks, housing structures, and more. Beneficial aluminum properties include low mass, thermal and electrical conductivity, and high reflectivity.Learn More
