Aluminum is a low-density chemical element. It is non-ferrous (does not contain iron) and therefore is 100% recyclable. Aluminum is the most abundant metal in the Earth’s crust but mostly has to be found in minerals as it is difficult to find it in its pure form. It is very soft and its ability to naturally passivate makes it extremely corrosion resistant. The material is generally alloyed with other metals when strength is required but its purer form is used when corrosion resistance is needed.
At Faith Manufacturing we can cut on all types of Aluminum although 6051 grade is the most common. Some of the grades we manufacture include 6061-T6 and 6051. Aluminum is great for products like alignment keys and gaskets. Let our expertise benefit you and request a quote today!
