Cleaning Aluminium Surfaces

Aluminium is a proven construction material for buildings, vehicles, appliances and products, both as a framing and cladding material. In the building industry, it is by far the most common material used for window and door joinery, curtain walls and shop fronts. It is widely used in every aspect of the transport, leisure, boating and household appliance industries .Its selection is based on many criteria – one being its ease of fabrication to provide visual appeal and easy maintenance.

Handling & Storage of Aluminium

Aluminium is one of the easiest materials to keep in good condition. It has a high natural resistance to corrosive conditions normally encountered during shipment and storage, and a little care will maintain its original appearance for a long time. Generally, guard against conditions that might cause surface abrasions or water stains. Suppliers make every effort to pack aluminium so that traffic marks or rub marks do not occur during shipment and so that it remains dry.

Comparative Characteristics & Applications of Aluminium

An aluminum alloy is a chemical composition where other elements are added to pure aluminum in order to enhance its properties, primarily to increase its strength. These other elements include iron, silicon, copper, magnesium, manganese and zinc at levels that combined may make up as much as 15% of the alloy by weight.  Alloys are assigned a four-digit number, in which the first digit identifies a general class, or series, characterized by its main alloying elements.
