Aluminum’s advantages make it an efficient, modern, and effective material for construction and building through:
Aluminum products for building are made of alloys that resist corrosion, weathering, and UV rays. This ensures long-lasting performance.
Because of its combination of properties, aluminum can easily be shaped using any of the main industrial metalworking processes, such as rolling, forging, and casting. This guarantees virtually unlimited design possibilities.
Aluminum’s lightweight makes it easier to transport and use on-site.
Aluminum can be used in buildings to meet performance requirements and reduce foundation costs. Aluminum alloy can be as strong and durable as steel, but only one-third the weight.
- Corrosive Resistance
The natural oxide coating of aluminum provides a protective barrier against metal-wearing elements.
Insulated aluminum cladding is four times more efficient than uninsulated timber, 100mm brick, or 200mm stone masonry.
Aluminum can be recycled 100% and requires only 5% of energy to make the original product. Nearly all of the aluminum used in construction can be recycled.
- Thermal Efficiency
Because of its high thermal insulation, unpainted aluminum can reduce heat transfer by as much as 9.50C. This can help reduce the increasing operating costs for air conditioners.
- Fire Safety
Aluminum is not combustible and therefore it is classified as a non-combustible building material. Aluminum alloys can still melt at 600 to 650 degrees Celsius, without releasing any harmful gases.
