Product Description:

Aluminium alloys with a wide range of properties are used in engineering structures. Alloy systems are classified by a number system (ANSI) or by names indicating their main alloying constituents (DIN and ISO).

The strength and durability of aluminium alloys vary widely, not only as a result of the components of the specific alloy, but also as a result of heat treatments and manufacturing processes. A lack of knowledge of these aspects has from time to time led to improperly designed structures and gained aluminium a bad reputation.

One important structural limitation of aluminium alloys is their fatigue strength. Unlike steels, aluminium alloys have no well-defined fatigue limit, meaning that fatigue failure eventually occurs, under even very small cyclic loadings. This implies that engineers must assess these loads and design for a fixed life rather than an infinite life.

Another important property of aluminium alloys is their sensitivity to heat. Workshop procedures involving heating are complicated by the fact that aluminium, unlike steel, melts without first glowing red. Forming operations where a blow torch is used therefore require some expertise, since no visual signs reveal how close the material is to melting. Aluminium alloys, like all structural alloys, also are subject to internal stresses following heating operations such as welding and casting. The problem with aluminium alloys in this regard is their low melting point, which make them more susceptible to distortions from thermally induced stress relief. Controlled stress relief can be done during manufacturing by heat-treating the parts in an oven, followed by gradual cooling—in effect annealing the stresses.

The low melting point of aluminium alloys has not precluded their use in rocketry; even for use in constructing combustion chambers where gases can reach 3500 K. The Agena upper stage engine used a regeneratively cooled aluminium design for some parts of the nozzle, including the thermally critical throat region.

Another alloy of some value is aluminium bronze (Cu-Al alloy).

Aluminium foil acts as a total barrier to light and oxygen (which cause fats to oxidise or become rancid), odours and flavours, moistness, and germs, it is used broadly in food and pharmaceutical packaging. The purpose of aluminium is to make long-life packs (aseptic processing|aseptic packaging) for drinks and dairy goods, which allows storing without refrigeration. Aluminium foil containers and trays are used to bake pies and to pack takeaway meals, ready snacks and long life pet foods.

Aluminium foil is widely sold into the consumer market, often in rolls of 500 mm (20 in) width and several metres in length.It is used for wrapping food in order to preserve it, for example, when storing leftover food in a refrigerator (where it serves the additional purpose of preventing odour exchange), when taking sandwiches on a journey, or when selling some kinds of take-away or fast food. Tex-Mex restaurants in the United States, for example, typically provide take-away burritos wrapped in aluminium foil.

Aluminium foils thicker than 25 μm (1 mil) are impermeable to oxygen and water. Foils thinner than this become slightly permeable due to minute pinholes caused by the production process.

Aluminium foil has a shiny side and a matte side. The shiny side is produced when the aluminium is rolled during the final pass. It is difficult to produce rollers with a gap fine enough to cope with the foil gauge, therefore, for the final pass, two sheets are rolled at the same time, doubling the thickness of the gauge at entry to the rollers. When the sheets are later separated, the inside surface is dull, and the outside surface is shiny. This difference in the finish has led to the perception that favouring a side has an effect when cooking. While many believe that the different properties keep heat out when wrapped with the shiny finish facing out, and keep heat in with the shiny finish facing inwards, the actual difference is imperceptible without instrumentation.The reflectivity of bright aluminium foil is 88% while dull embossed foil is about 80%.

Aluminium (or aluminum; see spelling differences) is a chemical element in the boron group with symbol Al and atomic number 13. It is a silvery white, soft, ductile metal. Aluminium is the third most abundant element (after oxygen and silicon), and the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust. It makes up about 8% by weight of the Earth's solid surface. Aluminium metal is so chemically reactive that native specimens are rare and limited to extreme reducing environments. Instead, it is found combined in over 270 different minerals.The chief ore of aluminium is bauxite.

Aluminium is remarkable for the metal's low density and for its ability to resist corrosion due to the phenomenon of passivation. Structural components made from aluminium and its alloys are vital to the aerospace industry and are important in other areas of transportation and structural materials. The most useful compounds of aluminium, at least on a weight basis, are the oxides and sulfates.

Despite its prevalence in the environment, no known form of life uses aluminium salts metabolically. In keeping with its pervasiveness, aluminium is well tolerated by plants and animals. Owing to their prevalence, potential beneficial (or otherwise) biological roles of aluminium compounds are of continuing interest.

The earliest citation given in the Oxford English Dictionary for any word used as a name for this element is alumium, which British chemist and inventor Humphry Davy employed in 1808 for the metal he was trying to isolate electrolytically from the mineral alumina. The citation is from the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London: "Had I been so fortunate as to have obtained more certain evidences on this subject, and to have procured the metallic substances I was in search of, I should have proposed for them the names of silicium, alumium, zirconium, and glucium."

Davy settled on aluminum by the time he published his 1812 book Chemical Philosophy: "This substance appears to contain a peculiar metal, but as yet Aluminum has not been obtained in a perfectly free state, though alloys of it with other metalline substances have been procured sufficiently distinct to indicate the probable nature of alumina."[69] But the same year, an anonymous contributor to the Quarterly Review, a British political-literary journal, in a review of Davy's book, objected to aluminum and proposed the name aluminium, "for so we shall take the liberty of writing the word, in preference to aluminum, which has a less classical sound."

The -ium suffix conformed to the precedent set in other newly discovered elements of the time: potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, and strontium (all of which Davy isolated himself). Nevertheless, -um spellings for elements were not unknown at the time, as for example platinum, known to Europeans since the 16th century, molybdenum, discovered in 1778, and tantalum, discovered in 1802. The -um suffix is consistent with the universal spelling alumina for the oxide (as opposed to aluminia), as lanthana is the oxide of lanthanum, and magnesia, ceria, and thoria are the oxides of magnesium, cerium, and thorium respectively.

The aluminum spelling is used in the Webster's Dictionary of 1828. In his advertising handbill for his new electrolytic method of producing the metal in 1892, Charles Martin Hall used the -um spelling, despite his constant use of the -ium spelling in all the patents[58] he filed between 1886 and 1903. It has consequently been suggested[by whom?] that the spelling reflects an easier-to-pronounce word with one fewer syllable, or that the spelling on the flyer was a mistake.[citation needed] Hall's domination of production of the metal ensured that aluminum became the standard English spelling in North America

Q:Aluminum foil insulation tile poisonous?
Of course, otherwise what tiles ah, my family used a Levin across types of magnesium products, home of pig fat, good appetite.
Q:What happened to the aluminum macbook?
The aluminum ones dropped in price and are now all branded macbook pros. This is so that it will be easier to distinguish between a macbook and a macbook pro. If you were going to buy the aluminum macbook (late 2008-mid 2009), buy a higher spec macbook pro for the same price now.
Q:Can foil paper be used in microwave ovens?
Aluminum foil can not be used in microwave ovens, although the supermarket has dedicated aluminum foil, but be careful. Because the aluminum foil packaging food into the furnace heating, aluminum foil and the inner wall contact will produce sparks.Microwave produced by microwave oven belongs to radio frequency band, usually around 2500MHz. This band of microwaves has the following features: 1) it can be absorbed by food and water, causing molecules to move violently and produce heat. 2) not absorbed by plastics, ceramics, or glass. 3) the metal conducts electricity under the influence of the electric field of the microwave. The electric field of thick metal can resist the microwave, and the microwave reflected out, so the inner wall of the microwave oven is made of thick metal; if the thick walled metal container in the microwave and metal containers will reflect the microwave so that the food is not heated. But the foil is too thin, so electrical conductivity can cause a catastrophic reaction. The process of conducting a thin metal so rapidly that its temperature rises linearly can cause a fire. At the same time, the tip produced by the heat contraction of the foil causes sparks, which can ignite any combustible material in the microwave oven.
Q:aluminum for electrolysis?
You will rapidly form aluminium oxide, which will coat the positive electrode. After a while, this will diminish the current, so the efficiency of the electrolysis will be greatly reduced. The electrolysis itself is fairly safe (it is how anodised aluminium is made). But you'd be better off with a less reactive metal as your electrode, or one which does not form a protective oxide layer (or at least, not as easily).
Q:5LB of aluminum has wat aproximate volume?
Solid (block) Aluminum has a density of about 2.70 grams per cubic centimeter, flake or dust contains captured are and usually has a density of about 2.50 to 2.40 grams per cubic centimeter at room temperature. 5 pounds is about 2267 grams. 2267 grams / 2.50 grams per cc = 906.8 cc 2267 grams / 2.40 grams per cc = 944.6 cc In either case less than a liter.
Q:If aluminium is mixed with another metal can it still be a superconductor?
Aluminum by itself is very weak superconductor. If I recall it correctly, its critical temperature is 150 mK. Usually alloys of two or more superconductors are better superconductors than each of the components. Aluminum will probably improve as semiconductor a great deal if something like Sn is mixed in.
Q:What are the advantages and disadvantages of aluminum baseball bats and wood bats?
Aluminum bats (not actually made of aluminum) are used for youth play because wood bats are usually too heavy for most kids to swing. The lighter weight metal makes the bat easier to swing and kids can hit the ball much harder and farther. They do pose a problem because as they are made better and better to hit the ball harder and faster, there is less reaction time for the fielders, and many kids have been killed/injured by balls hit from aluminum bats. They actually use aluminum bats all the way up through college, although I'm fairly certain that wood bats are allowed in college and high school. The main problems with wood bats are that they're heavy and they can break fairly easily. I usually play with a metal bat, but I hit with a wood bat a lot too, because wood is the traditional bat of the game.
Q:What is the Aluminum to Earth ratio?
Abundance of aluminum in the crust is estimated to be about 8.2% of crustal mass, however this cannot be measured directly (it is estimated from the abundance of metal in the oceans). As the crust represents about 3% of the mass of the earth, and there are no more than trace amounts of aluminum elsewhere in the earth (ie mantle and core), aluminum represents about 8% * 3% = 0.25% of the total mass of the earth. Thus, the ratio of Aluminum to Earth (by mass) is about 1:40000
Q:Puppy ate some aluminum foil?
Just keep an eye on her! She should be fine. When she goes potty or poopy look for blood and keep an eye on her! I hope everythings ok! I am glad your taking her to the vet!
Q:Songs about aluminium?
Aluminum, a song by The White Stripes from their 2001 album White Blood Cells Aluminum (album) a music and art project based upon the White Stripes' music; also an album released by that project Aluminum, a song by Barenaked Ladies from their 2003 album Everything to Everyone Aluminum, the title track from an album by the metal group Sundown Aluminium, a song by Damon Albarn
