What are the main properties of aluminium?
- Aluminium is present in abundance in the composition of the earth’s crust
- Aluminium is a silver-coloured metal that is light, very ductile and malleable. It is also resistant to the atmosphere, because it covers itself with an invisible layer of aluminium oxide that protects it from corrosion, which makes it practically impervious to the effect of a great many chemical substances.
- Its atomic mass is 26.9815, and it has a very low melting point at 660ºC and a boiling point at 2,467ºC, with a relative density of 2.7 kg/m3.
- It is a very electropositive and extremely reactive metal.
- Because it is so ductile, it is much easier to shape than steel.
- One important quality of aluminium is that it can be recycled without losing any of its quality or properties.
