Aluminium is a chemical element with the symbol Al and atomic number 13. Here are some interesting facts:

  • It was discovered by Hans Christian Ørsted in 1824.
  • It is only 1/3 the density of steel.
  • It is superconductive at low temperatures.
  • It is almost always alloyed, which markedly improves its mechanical properties, especially when tempered.
  • It is vital to the aerospace industry. Its formability offers smaller parts for easy fabrication. It is also a lightweight, cost-effective and fuel-efficient alternative to other aerospace materials.
  • It is also wildly used in packaging (cans, foil, frames, etc.) because it is non-toxic, non-adsorptive, and splinter-proof.
  • The Austin A40 Sports debuted at the 1949 London Motor Show was aluminum-bodied.
