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.

Kinetic Die Casting Company makes an aluminum die casting part as a heater plate for a chocolate fountain. The heater plate transfers the heat from a heating element to a stainless steel bowl to melt chocolate. Aluminum die casting parts are used because aluminum has excellent properties for transferring heat and dissipating heat. Die castings are inexpensive compared to other aluminum part manufacturing processes.
chocolate fountain

A chocolate fountain is a device for serving chocolate fondue. Typical examples resemble a stepped cone, standing 2-4 feet tall with a crown at the top and stacked tiers over a basin at the bottom. The basin is heated to keep the chocolate in a liquid state so it can be pulled into a center cylinder then vertically transported to the top of the fountain by a corkscrew auger. From there it flows over the tiers creating a chocolate “waterfall” in which food items like strawberries or marshmallows can be dipped.

Go with automotive Parts Die Casted. Manufacturing of automotive parts has grown as compared to the recent decades. As technology age, outcomes also become more advanced wherein they are now easier to make and have stronger properties.

Production of economy cars has been very possible with the use of aluminum automotive parts. Aluminum is very economic and practical because of the chemical properties that it carries. As we all know, automotive consists of very detailed and small parts wherein precision is very important to ensure that the whole automotive will work. Also, the material to be used should be heat-resistant to withstand the heat that the engine makes. With this, die casted aluminum is perfect because it can be easily shaped into detailed parts. Plastics are also easy to shape because of their elasticity but when it comes to being heat-resistant, they can only withstand certain temperature which is lower than that of aluminum.

Also, other advantages of using aluminum in automotive parts are the weight, corrosion-resistant, economic, and durable. Due to the abundance of aluminum on earth, acquisition of this material is very easy so it is cheaper as compared to plastic and other materials that are difficult to acquire. Being a corrosion-resistant leads to longer lifespan of the automotive parts which is advisable so that the automotive will also have a longer lifespan.
