Aluminum (Al) is the most abundant mineral on Earth after oxygen and silicon and is the most abundant metal found naturally on Earth. It is present in 270 minerals. Aluminum is a silver, soft metal with an atomic number of thirteen and thirteen protons in the nucleus. It constitutes about eight percent of the Earth’s land mass.

Aluminum (aka Aluminium) fun facts:

  1. Caution – Iodine and Aluminum powder plus a few drops of water create: Clouds of toxic purple iodine vapor and a flame.
  2. Recycling aluminum takes only 5 percent of the energy needed to extract new aluminum from ore.
  3. Aluminum is globally the most used metal that does not contain iron.
  4. Aluminum is almost always used as an alloy, even if the aluminum content is as high as 99%.
  5. The most commonly used elements to combine with aluminum to create an alloy are zinc, copper, silicon, magnesium, and manganese.
  6. This element is the second-most abundant metallic element in Earth’s crust after silicon.
  7. Aluminum is lightweight (a third the weight of steel or copper).
  8. That Coke can: According to the Aluminum Association, an aluminum can takes 60 days to return as a new can after recycling.
  9. Aluminum and its alloys are significantly used in the aerospace industry auto manufacturing and transportation, construction, packaging etc.
  10. Aluminum is also used as a compound to manufacturing paints, antacids, deodorants and are also used as a catalyst in explosives (such as ammonium nitrate) to boost explosive capabilities.
  11. Aluminum is a very reflective metal, which is very useful in home decor items such as aluminum blinds, aluminum fence, aluminum doors, aluminum windows etc.
  12. Keep vinegar and bleach away from your aluminum products.
  13. Aluminum parts when damp creates a white oxide that protects the aluminum surface but keeps paint from sticking.
  14. Aluminum is incredibly flexible enough that it can be easily formed into the tiniest of items such as paper clips, dial gauges etc.

I hope you enjoyed these fun facts about aluminum. More than 90% of our die casting production is in aluminum alloy parts.

Take the Heat off and Use Aluminum Heatsinks. Aluminum heatsinks are among die casting products with wide applications in consumer goods. In fact, as you are reading this in your PC, an aluminum heatsink part is most likely working for you. An aluminum heat sink is the component built sitting on top of the circuit board of a computer’s CPU to prevent overheating and damage to the circuits.

What does aluminum heat sinks do? What aluminum heat sinks do is take the heat off from the computer’s board because the material that this die casting aluminum is made has good thermal conductivity. Aluminum use as die casting material is also advantageous because it is very light, making aluminum heatsinks a necessary component for both desktop and laptop computers.

Also, Aluminum heat sinks are useful in thermal management of refrigeration systems. Heat is removed from the enclosed refrigerator space and shifted somewhere else for a more efficient operation. For several years, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in North America have sourcing such components as aluminum heatsinks from overseas die casting companies because of cost considerations.

Unfortunately, things have changed lately as the OEMs have realized that the sourcing die casting components, such aluminum heatsinks, from overseas suppliers is not cost-effective after all. There are quality issues in die casting products manufactured overseas. In addition, there are logistical problems with overseas suppliers, making US die casting companies more attractive as local production partners. A more serious concern is confidentiality. For instance, a computer manufacturer may have to reveal product specifications, technological know-how and marketing information to its foreign supplier of aluminum heatsinks, a leak that could be tapped by competitors either at home or abroad.

Golf Products made from Aluminum Die Casting. Golf products are just one of the many things that you can produce with aluminum die casting. This process, known popularly as die casting, involves producing parts made out of strong, cost-efficient, and durable alloys and materials. This is done by forcing molten metal into aluminum or steel die cast molds through high pressure. Interestingly enough, the molds being used can be designed in such a way that they can produce complex shapes that make it more durable, tolerable, and long-lasting. Golf handles, balls, and parts used in golf carts are just some of the golfing equipment that can be made with aluminum die casting.

Because aluminum die casting produces the parts fast and are known to be durable, stable, and can be made into different shapes, most manufacturers of golf products use this method to create their aluminum golf products. Addressing the need to produce golf products that actually improve a player’s game, many companies are now selling aluminum golf products in the market today. Golf players prefer aluminum die castings of their golf products not only because of their cheaper prices but also when molded, shaped, and produced properly, these products can improve their game and lessen their handicaps. Some examples of these golf products are golf ball warmers, the heads of golf clubs, aluminum handles, brackets, and knobs in golf pull carts, and so on and so forth.

As the White House prepares to submit the Trans-Pacific Partnership to Congress in the coming months, it has been touting its record on trade enforcement to persuade lawmakers to vote for the 12-nation pact. The United Steelworkers union on Monday upped the ante on that front by asking President Barack Obama to impose a 50 percent duty on aluminum imports from China and other suppliers as soon as July.

The U.S. International Trade Commission would normally take up to six months to investigate the Section 201 petition for global import relief and make recommendations to Obama, who would have another two months to decide what action to take. However, the union is asking the ITC to make a finding of “critical circumstances” within 60 days so Obama can act quickly to keep additional U.S. aluminum smelters from closing.

If the trade panel makes that determination, the president would then have 30 days to approve some of type of provisional relief while the Section 201 case proceeds for another six to eight months, Terry Stewart, a lawyer for the union group, said.

The timing isn’t ideal for Obama’s TPP push. The aluminum case potentially puts the president on the spot by forcing him to decide whether to impose the 50-percent “provisional” duty sought by the steelworkers while the Section 201 investigation proceeds. If he decides against it or puts in place some lesser relief, that could jeopardize potential votes for the TPP pact.
