Why Should You Choose Aluminum Products?

Aluminum is the only metal that can be used in so many ways across a variety of domains such as, in the home, in transport, on land, sea, air and also in a variety of industries. Aluminum is widely used in industries such as the gun industry, commercial lighting & stage lighting, Kayak/boating, health & fitness, vending, heating/cooling refrigeration, displays/signs & partitions, doors/window framing and also the medical industry. The main characteristics of aluminum which make it one of the top products used in these industries includes corrosion resistance, low density, ductility, electrical conductivity and strength in alloys.

Aluminum forms an oxide coating that is protective and non destructive, thus taking on a natural resistance to corrosion. Due to this layer of protection, it is commonly used for the packaging of drinking cans, foil wrapping, bottle tops, etc. This characteristic of aluminum safely helps to protect food/drinks from changes in the local environment that could be harmful if consumed. Aluminum is also impermeable, non-toxic and odorless which makes it a perfect packaging material for food and/or beverages. Aluminum’s resistance to corrosion is also a beneficial metal to use in buildings and construction because there is no future need to maintain the building’s presence. Aluminum is also extremely light weight at about 1/3 the weight of copper or steel. This low density of aluminum makes it excellent for the use in the transportation industry because the low weight helps to produce high fuel efficiency and then therefore cutting costs. Aluminum is also used for long distance power lines due to its light weight as well as its electrical conductivity. It transmits conducted heat and reflects radiant heat making it an excellent medium from which to produce cooking utensils, radiators and building insulation. Pure aluminum is soft enough to carve and shape when heat treated, but when mixed with other alloys, it can provide the strength of steel but only at 1/3 of the weight!

Aluminum is also 100% recyclable which saves about 95% of the energy needed for primary production!

"Our company builds industrial machinery, and we rely on Unique Extrusions to supply one of the most critical parts on our machine. They have always been completely professional and reliable, and their quality has been excellent. Additionally they are very good at reacting to our needs. A few years ago, our weekly demand increased to a level that was greater than what they could produce on the machine that ran our parts. In order to help us, they worked out a way to move our parts to a larger machine that could handle our demand. When our demand increased again, they came up with a way to run our parts at a higher speed while still keeping the same quality level. Whenever we have a problem, Frank is always there to help, and I know that he exhausts all possible options in working to meet our needs.

Overall, Unique is an excellent company, and we consider them to be one of our most valuable suppliers."
