Aluminium is a material classified as an alloy. It is used in many different ways, as it has many very good properties thanks to its good mechanical characteristics in relation to density. Aluminium is widely used in the aviation, aerospace and automotive industries. It is also used in many other areas where weight, resistance to corrosion and good machinability are important.
In order to increase the capability of the individual alloys, they can naturally also be combined with heat treatments.
