Aluminium is an essential part of our daily lives. It is the third most abundant element after oxygen and silicon and the most abundant metal in the crust, constituting more than 8% of the earth’s crust.
As the sustainable material of choice, its applications span from everyday items like fuel-efficient vehicles and cans to cutting edge technologies for Space X and the Falcon 9. Combining strength and versatility, aluminium can be made thin enough to be crushed by human hands. At the same time, it can stand up to the most extreme applications, such as military aviation or space travel.
