Characteristics and Application of Aluminum
Aluminum is a white metal with a slight blue light. Unlike other metal elements, aluminum does not exist in nature in the form of direct metal elements, but is extracted from bauxite containing 50% alumina (also known as bauxite). It is one of the most abundant metal elements 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 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 etc.
Characteristics of aluminum materials
Aluminum metal is flexible and plastic, easy to be made into alloy, high strength weight ratio, excellent corrosion resistance, easy to conduct electricity and heat, recyclable, etc.
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 Chrysler automobile building in New York.
Aluminum is often made into rod, sheet, foil, powder, ribbon and silk to meet the needs of different occasions and fields. Here, we AEM provide all kinds of materials related to aluminum. If you are interested, you can click the link below to view.
