Five Interesting Facts About Aluminium

From pots and pans to ladders to soda cans (not to mention security doors) - countless products are made of aluminium. As one of the world’s most widely used metals, without a doubt, you have probably used an aluminium product. Even though it is widely used, there are some interesting facts you may not know about aluminium.

1/ Recyclable 

Three-quarters of aluminium ever produced is still in use today! Aluminium can be recycled repeatedly, with nearly all the metal being reused without creating waste.

2/ Precious

Aluminium was once considered more precious than gold and silver, with Napoleon III serving his state dinners on aluminium plates.

3/ Popular

Along with steel, aluminium is one of the most widely used metals in the world. 

4/ Rust-free

Since aluminium does not contain iron, it does not rust, making it the perfect choice to use in products that need to withstand our Victorian weather along the Bellarine coast! 

5/ Lightweight 

Aluminium is one of the lightest metals in the world, weighing one-third less than steel. Highly resistant to heat yet extremely flexible, it takes temperatures of 660 degrees Celsius to melt aluminium.
