views, Updated: 2021-09-20
Aluminum is a white metal with a slightly blue light. Unlike other metal elements, aluminum does not exist in nature in direct metal elements but is extracted from bauxite containing 50% alumina is one of the most abundant metal element on earth.
The application history of aluminum is relatively short, but the output of aluminum products on the market has far exceeded the total of other non-ferrous products. In the high-tech field, the application of aluminum products is everywhere. For example, spherical aluminum powder in the aluminum powder can be applied to 3D printing. High purity aluminum can also be used as evaporation material of aluminum block, aluminum sputtering target, aluminum alloy sputtering target.
Characteristics of aluminum materials
Aluminum metal is flexible and easy to be made into an alloy, high strength weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance, easy to conduct electricity and heat, recyclable.
Typical use of aluminum
Aluminum can be used in vehicle framework, aircraft parts, kitchen appliances, packaging, and furniture. Aluminum is also often used to reinforce large structures, such as the statue of Eros on Piccadilly Square in London and the top of the Chrysler automobile building in New York.
Aluminum is often made into rod, sheet, foil, powder, ribbon, and silk to meet different occasions and fields' needs. Here, we AEM provide all kinds of materials related to aluminum. If you are interested, you can click the link below to view it.
