Aluminum is a chemical element of the periodic table of elements with atomic number 13. Its symbol is Al and is identified by CAS number 7429-90-5
It is a silver ductile metal. Aluminum is extracted mainly from bauxite minerals and its softness, its lightness and its resistance to oxidation are remarkable due to the formation of a thin layer of oxide that prevents oxygen from corroding the underlying metal. Raw aluminum is processed through various industrial production processes, such as fusion, extrusion, forging or molding.
Aluminum is used in many industries to manufacture millions of different products and is very important to the world economy. Aluminum structural components are vital for the aerospace industry and are very important in other transport and construction fields where lightness, durability and durability are required.
