10 Interesting Facts About Aluminum

Aluminum is one of the most abundant and useful metals found on the Earth. This may surprise you but during the 1890s, it was one of the most expensive materials due to extremely high refining costs. But, the good news is, in the present era, it has become the most sought-after metal for its strength, durability, and cost-efficiency. Aluminum is used for window frames, aluminum gates, staples,computer parts,patio furniture,car rims, and much more.

This blog will share 10 interesting facts about this incredibly useful meal. 

1. Aluminum was discovered in 1807 by the English chemist Sir Humphrey Davy. Following Davy’s work, H.C. Oersted, a Danish physicist, produced the first nodules of aluminum. However, aluminum was commercially used in the 1870s. 
2. Aluminum was once called as the king of the metals.
3. Aluminum is said to be the third most common material.
4. Aluminum degrades in 200-500 years.
5. Aluminum is the second best heat conductor after copper. Its thermal conductivity is 118.
6. Aluminum is a non-magnetic and corrosion resistant material.
7. Aluminum is a non-toxic metal. So, being around it does not have any negative impact on your health.
8. Aluminum is a flexible metal that allows it to be used in any desired way.
9. When aluminum is polished, it becomes the metal with the highest reflectivity, even more reflective than glass mirrors.
10. Aluminum is a recyclable material that can be recycled multiple times with no quality loss. The recycling process requires only 5% of the total energy required for producing new aluminum. Recycling one aluminum saves you that much energy that you can easily watch a full movie on your smart phone.
