Aluminium End User - Others
The white metal which was once one of the most precious metals available in the world is now becoming an essential part of our day to day life. Other than the most obvious sectors like aerospace, construction, packaging, electrical and automotive, the metal has ventured into almost all other applications which were once the exclusive domain for iron, tin and steel.
Due to its unique properties, notably for its machinability, electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance and easy recyclability, aluminium is used in numerous end-user applications more readily available around us. Aluminium is used extensively to make kitchen utensils, home appliances, high pressure gas cylinders, sports equipment, indoor and outdoor furniture, medical equipment.
Other uses of aluminium can be seen in plant machineries, solar panels, aluminium-air batteries, ships & boats and trains. Light weight and high strength proves to be the key factors for such uses. Due to the malleability of the metal, aluminium is now extensively used in various art installations all over the world. The infinite possibilities of aluminium are only to grow further with the development of science, technology and design innovations.
