The advantages of Aluminum Handle Hardware over plastic. Aluminum handles are probably the most common aluminum product that we use and see in our everyday lives. From door handles to cabinet handles, to handles used for carrying electronic devices and industrial equipment, aluminum handles are present everywhere we look, even though they are not the first thing that we notice. The important thing for us is that it provides convenience and ease of use of the things that they are attached to.
Handles can come in many different forms, sizes and materials. Aside from aluminum, plastic, stainless steel, brass and wrought iron are some of the other materials used in making handles. If you look closely, however, you will notice that aluminum and plastic are two of the most widely used raw materials in making handle hardware. This is because both plastic and aluminum are easier to fashion into handles through molds or die cast, in the case of aluminum. Also, compared to other metals, aluminum is a lot lighter, which makes it more practical to use.
But how does aluminum handle hardware compare with plastic? And which of the two is better? It is a common misconception that plastic is cheaper than aluminum. This is a misconception because the comparative costs depend highly on the grade of the plastic. You can get a cheaper plastic alternative for a low cost but you can be sure that the quality and durability are not the same as what you will get from aluminum. Also, plastic deteriorates with continued exposure to elements. On the contrary, aluminum is by nature durable, and is able to withstand the same exposure to the elements.
