Aluminum (Al) Metal

Pure aluminum is a lightweight silvery-white metal. It is soft and malleable with a low density. It is non-toxic and with high tensile strength. It has high thermal conductivity and excellent corrosion resistance and can be easily cast, machined, and formed. It is non-magnetic and non-sparking. Weight for weight is twice as good as a conductor of electricity as copper.

Purities are available from as high of a typical purity of 99.996% down for some granulations to low-purity recycled scrap aluminum alloys.
Detailed Particle Size Information

Numerous granulation size options are available, from as large as aluminum notched bar ingots down to as small as 5-nanometer particles.

Typical Applications

Aluminum is often used as an alloy, which is important in the construction of airplanes and other forms of transport. Other uses include the manufacture of aerospace ceramic coatings, solid rocket propellants, military applications, aluminum alloy powder, resins, thermally conductive resins, aluminum paste, high-temperature ceramic, metallic paste, containers and packaging, paint pigment, metallurgy, batteries, energy storage, superconductors, sputtering targets, and additives manufacturing parts.

Packaging Options

Jars, pails, drums, multi-ply paper bags, bulk bags, and fiberboard containers

Sustainable Qualities

As a material, Aluminum is considered sustainable due to its inherent properties that make it an ideal candidate for a circular economy. Aluminum is lightweight, durable, and corrosion-resistant, making it an excellent choice for products that need to last a long time. Additionally, Aluminum is infinitely recyclable, meaning it can be reused over and over again without losing its quality. Recycling Aluminum saves energy and reduces the need for mining new bauxite ore, the raw material used to make Aluminum. Thus, Aluminum Metal is a sustainable material that promotes a circular economy by reducing waste and conserving resources.
