Aluminum is a soft, lightweight, malleable metal with a silvery white and ductile member of the chemical elements. It is the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust and is the third most abundant element overall, after oxygen and silicon.
It makes up about 8% by weight of the Earth's solid surface, and is remarkable for its ability to resist corrosion and its light weight.
Structural components made from aluminum and its alloys are vital to the aerospace industry and very important in other areas of transportation and building.
This metal in itself is a good thermal and electrical conductor, by weight better than copper. It is capable of being a superconductor with a superconducting critical temperature of 1.2 Kelvin.
In Cyprus, the aluminum products produced are not limited to just architectural systems. There are also specialized profiles produced for the transport industry, signs, irrigation tubes, telecommunications, ladders and step ladders, carpet edging as well as a huge variety of standard profiles, tubes and customized products.
