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.

Lightweight and versatile

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.

Scrap Aluminium Recycling

Aluminium has an infinite life and can be recycled from one product to another. Recycled aluminium is used in a multitude of different products. Examples of products include window frames, cars, food packaging and aeroplanes. Closed loop recycling is an endless process of reusing metals.

Environmentally Friendly Recycling

Recycling aluminium takes up 95% less energy than to produce, also aluminium recycling has the same properties as newly produced. Recycling also limits emissions, including greenhouse gases.
