Aluminum is elemental metal known for its remarkable light weight, low density and high corrosion resistance.
Aluminum is the leading material in the aviation industry and makes up almost 75% of an aircraft structure and composition. Aluminum has high heat and corrosion resistance, high strength, and accepts coatings and paints. These features are required in aerospace and automotive construction, which usually undergo many extreme conditions.
This alloy has microscopic oxide coating on its surface which prevents it from oxidizing quickly in the air. This kind of super alloy is widely used due to its excellent features, like corrosion resistance and malleability. It primarily has a role in various industries like transportation, medical, aerospace, construction, and general manufacturing.

Aluminum Steel Bars
When aluminum is alloyed with steel, the result creates a super strong material that challenges even the best titanium alloys.
Aluminum steel bars are superalloys that are mainly used in aircraft construction because of their low density and lightweight properties. They have excellent properties that are perfect for many industrial and construction applications, including:
- aircraft fittings
- fuse parts
- missile parts
- commercial aircrafts
- defense equipment
- aerospace components.
Like aluminum, it has mechanical properties such as low density, light weight, hardness, and great resistance to a wide range of extreme temperatures. Aluminum steel bars are easy to fabricate and weld with their ease in machinability features. We have aluminum steel bars that are cut to desired size and with high tolerance and excellent properties to fit any kind of specific application.

The Basics of Aluminum Alloy
Aluminum is the most abundant metal in Earth’s crust after silicon and oxygen. It has a silvery-white appearance and contains a lot of valuable mechanical properties. It possesses 60% of the electrical conductivity of copper, with much lower density, making it a lightweight material perfect for aircraft and aerospace construction.
Pure aluminum is soft and ductile, but it can be strengthened when it is alloyed with other elements like magnesium, copper, and silicon. Such alloys possess better corrosion resisting properties, with a protective oxide coating that is achieved and enhanced through the process of anodization. Their lightweight and non-toxic mechanical properties enable them to be easily machined and cast. One good thing about aluminum is that it is recyclable, which can save considerable amounts of energy. They only need to undergo a melting process in order for them to be reused.
Aluminum alloys have low density, therefore, they are lightweight which is one of the key factors to consider in constructing an aircraft and its vital parts. Other important properties they possess are malleability, high strength, easy machining, good electrical and thermal conductivity, and excellent corrosion resistance.
Aluminum in the Aviation Industry
80 percent of commercial transport aircraft frames are made up of aluminum. This alloy is the top choice for the construction of aircraft and parts like wings and fuselage. Most navy aircraft are mainly made of fabricated aluminum. The focus on aluminum casting technology is continuing to earn recognition with its countless advantages in forming complex parts for aircraft structure. With a low manufacturing cost, Aluminum Alloy is the top choice for incorporating innovative and complicated design concepts in the aviation industry.
