Why Aluminium?

Aluminium has been used in the transport with success in Europe since 1930 and has proved to have similar wear resistant characteristics as steel. The specific weight of aluminium (2.7g/cm3) is ⅓ of that of steel. The following are advantages of aluminium:

  • In the transport industry, aluminium allows clients for higher profit margins due to the substantial increase in legal payload;
  • Reduced fuel consumption;
  • It is corrosion resistance and therefore do not need to be painted (environmental hazard);
  • Lightweight yet not sacrificing wear resistance; and
  • Aluminium is green.
    • 75% of aluminium produced since it has been discovered is still in use today
    • Recycling aluminium saves 90-95 percent of the energy needed to make aluminium from the ore.
