    PROPERTIES OF ALUMINUM

    The high strength to weight ratio of aluminum, coupled with its corrosion resistance make it a great material for truck and trailer manufacturers or marine applications. In addition, aluminum has ideal electrical and thermal conductivities, and is heat resistant, making it an ideal choice for power transmission equipment manufacturers.

    Aluminum can be easily formed and machined, and accepts a wide variety of surface finishes, although in most applications it needs no protective coating.
