Aluminum is an amazing metal. It’s lightweight, non-magnetic, durable, corrosion resistant, and conductive. In fact, it’s stronger than steel, yet lighter than titanium. Aluminum is used in many applications, like cars, motorcycles, and airplanes. Aluminum does not rust, but it can wear down, or oxidize over time, especially when it is exposed to air, which can be very corrosive. Aluminum is also less conductive than other metals, so it is often used for non-conducting parts like bumpers, door panels, fenders, and door handles.
In the past, aluminum was used mostly for tools and weapons. Nowadays, it’s most often seen in cars. Most modern cars have aluminum wheels, hoods, and decklids. Some models have aluminum roofs, doors, or frames. Because A380 diecast aluminum is lightweight, it reduces the weight of a car. Aluminum is also relatively inexpensive. It’s not rare to find a new car for less than $25,000. Inexpensive cars are popular, because people can afford to buy them. For example, there are hundreds of low-cost cars available in the United States. This makes a lot of people rich.
