Aluminium ( Alu ) has very unique mechnical properties compare to other alloys. Aluminium is Low in weight, high in mechanical strength, superior malleability, easy machining, excellent corrosion resistance, good thermal and electrical conductivity. Its unique characteristic makes Aluminium the second most widely used metal in the world besides iron.
