As a chemical element, aluminium is the third most abundant element on Earth, after oxygen and silicon. It has only been used for 160 years and only for the past 100 years at an industrial level. The breakthrough occurred in 1886, when the electrolytic method of producing aluminium from aluminium oxide (alumina) was invented.
 
Despite this late discovery, nowadays we can find aluminium practically everywhere. It is widely used in packaging materials, technical applications, transportation or construction. You'll find it in a vast array of products from food containers to chocolate coin wrappers.

The main characteristics of aluminium:
  • It can be easily shaped, rolled, drawn, extruded, welded and therefore it is an ideal metal for construction purposes
  • It is highly resistant to various forms of corrosion
  • It forms a total barrier to light, odour, bacteria and moisture, plus it provides perfect protection and preservation for products
  • It is a good thermal and electrical conductor
  • It is non-toxic and can be used as a protective barrier
  • It is recyclable
 
The main applications for aluminium:
  • Foil & packaging (food, confectionery, dairy, pharmaceutical, tobacco)
  • Household uses (kitchen foil)
  • Technical applications (heat exchangers, insulation, cable wrap)
  • Automotive and transportation uses
  • Building and construction uses
  • Architecture
  • Lithography
  • Barrier
