Benefits of Aluminum
As a building material, aluminum (or Al on the periodic table) has a great deal of advantages that are important to take note of.
Light weight: if you have ever picked up anything made with the material you know that it is quite a bit lighter than other metals. In Fact, it is about a third of the weight of steel. For construction, it means that aluminum can be handled easier, thus speeding up workflow. It also means that there is less of a load burden when using it as a construction material.
Strong: Besides it being lightweight it is also very strong. Al has a strength to weight ratio that is stronger than steel. Meaning, if you had a bar of aluminum that weighed the same as a bar of steel, the aluminum would be stronger. Due to its strength and weight all modern skyscrapers must use Al in the building process.
100% Recyclable: if you are environmentally minded then aluminum is one of the materials you should use when you can. What makes it so environmentally friendly is that, like many metals, it can just be heated up to be remade into whatever you need. However, Al has a much lower melting point than metals like iron, steel and copper, which means that it takes a great deal less energy to recycle when compared to other metals.
Corrosion Resistance: One of the best things about aluminum is that it is naturally built to last. What does this mean. Consider iron, a very strong material that overtime will get rust (iron oxide) on it because of oxygen and moisture in the air. However, rust as we know, corrodes and destroys the strength of iron. Al also goes through an oxidation process, creating its own form of rust, but it actually creates a protective layer around the exposed aluminum.
Long Life: Due to it being resilient against corrosion it lasts a heck of a long time. Painted or coated versions will last even longer. The average roof lasts for 50 years or more. Withstands cold: unlike some metals, a cold environment does not make aluminum brittle but increases its tensile strength without affecting how tough it is.
Non-toxic: being nontoxic is the reason we can use it in cooking as foil. It also is odorless and does not impart any taste to food. This is why it is an excellent packaging for food and pharmaceuticals.
Reflectivity: Al is very good at reflecting heat from the sun. This means that you will spend less money on cooling your home, which will save you money. If a coating is applied then it can reflect up to 95% of infrared ray, which is what makes sunlight warm.
Conductive: Al conducts electricity very well and is used many high-power transmission lines. As a roofing material, once grounded, Aluminum will allow electricity to pass safely through it into the ground. When lightning hits a non-metal roof, damage and fire occur. It should also be noted that research has shown that metal roofs do not attract lightning, as is commonly believed.
