Aluminium Scrap

Aluminium is the third most abundant element with 8% of Earth’s solid suirface weight, it is silvery-white in colour and a ductile metallic element. The element symbol for aluminium is Al and its atomic number is 13 and is a member of the boron group in the periodic table. Aluminium is used to form light alloys which are corrosion resistant, also having good thermal and conductive properties. It cannot occur naturally in a pure form as its a highly reactive metal. Pure aluminium is only found in environments that lack abundant oxygen. Pure aluminium forms a high-energy chemical bond with oxygen. Found in over 270 minerals on the Earth’s crust and the most common of which is bauxite ore. An estimated 85% of worldwide bauxite mined is used to refine metal from alumina. Other uses are for abrasives, chemicals, materials and refractory products, and aluminium compounds.

Corrosion resistant properties of aluminium

Useful as a catalyst or additive in chemical mixtures because of its reactive nature. One of aluminium’s other special properties is that it is corrosion resistant. Aluminium oxide forms when the metal is exposed to air. This thin layer helps prevent oxidation that would otherwise cause rust. With a density of 2.7g/ccm aluminium is a exceptionally light metal, compared to steel’s density of 7.75g/ccm. Impervious to rust, great strength when alloyed and possesses a high conductivity. Also ductile and versatile, that is, it can be pressed into sheets or drawn into wires or foil making.

Aluminium is used in a wide variety of applications

Out of all non ferrous metals, aluminium is the most used metal in total volume. Many objects in the home and industry use aluminium and is a familiar metal to nearly everyone. The strength, lightness and corrosion resistance of aluminium are important considerations. Metallic aluminium, is used in applications such as cans, construction, transportation and electrical.

Honest, great communication, great prices. Friendly. I had a damaged catalytic converter from an attempted theft and Reclamet was the only company that had adequate communication and was not dodgy as most of the other scrap metal dealers seemed. So it was well-worth my drive from central London to Kent to get the £784 they paid me for the catalytic converter. Impressive :-)
