Aluminium in the Building and Construction Industries
Aluminum building materials is widely used in building because of its intrinsic properties of lightness and corrosion resistance.
Aluminum is used in external facades, roofs and walls, in windows and doors, in staircases, railings, shelves, and other several applications.
Aluminium in building construction
Thanks to its features, there are many benefits that aluminum offers to the construction industry:
Pure aluminum is a low-strength metal and consequently not suitable for building applications but thanks to the addition of alloying elements such as copper, manganese, magnesium, zinc etc. and thanks to specific production processes, it changes its physical and mechanical properties to meet requirements of a large number of applications.
Aluminum alloys for Building are resistant to water, corrosion and immune to the harmful effects of UV rays, thus ensuring a lasting endurance
Low maintenance costs
Aluminum does not require any special kind of maintenance, whether it is raw or lacquered aluminum
