ALUMINUM or ALUMINIUM
Number 13 on the "periodic table" of elements
Pure aluminum is a silvery-white metal with many desirable characteristics. It is light, nontoxic (as the metal), nonmagnetic and
nonsparking. It is somewhat decorative and easily formed, machined, and cast. Pure aluminum is soft and lacks strength, but alloys with
small amounts of copper, magnesium, silicon, manganese, and other elements have very useful properties. Aluminum is an abundant element in
the earth's crust, but it is not found free in nature.
Aluminum is used in:
The amount of aluminum in the human body ranges from 50 to 150 mg., with an average of about 65 mg. Most of this metal is
found in the lungs, brain, kidneys, liver and thyroid. Our daily intake ranges from 10 to 110 mg but the body will eliminate
most of this in our feces, urine and some in sweat.
- cans and foils
- kitchen utensils
- outside building decoration
- industrial applications where a strong, light, easily constructed material is needed
although its electrical conductivity is only about 60% that of copper per area of cross section, it is used in electrical transmission lines
because of its lightness and price
- alloys are of vital importance in the construction of modern aircraft and rockets
aluminum, evaporated in a vacuum, forms a highly reflective coating for both visible light and radiant heat. These coatings soon form a thin
layer of the protective oxide and do not deteriorate as do silver coatings. These coatings are used for telescope mirrors, decorative paper,
packages, toys, and in many other uses
- the oxide, alumina, occurs naturally as ruby, sapphire, corundum, and emery, and is used in glass making and refractories. Synthetic ruby
and sapphire are used in the construction of lasers
Organic - A reading under 15-20 ppm is considered normal, but 10-15 ppm, is probably ideal.
Inorganic - Should be 0 ppm
