In the marine industry, aluminum stands out among the crowd in regards to its molecular components being extremely well suited for many marine applications. Aluminum has been the chosen material for marine applications for many years due to its long-lasting durability in the harsh marine environment.
Below are some of the advantages of using Marine Grade Aluminum:
a) Durability – aluminum does not loose strength over time and does not rot, rust, or crack enabling
it to last for years and years without being compromised.
b) Corrosion Resistant – upon contact with the air, aluminum forms a resistant layer of aluminum
oxide that guards against corrosion.
c) Lightweight – technically, Aluminum is one-third the weight of steel which saves money on
shipping and labor costs.
d) Strength – aluminum is 30% stronger than steel and has a yield strength of 39,000 psi compared
to that of 30,000 psi for steel. A higher yield strength allows aluminum to withstand collisions that
would dent a similar structure made of steel.
e) Valuable – aluminum offers a scrap value of almost ten times than that of steel.
f) 100% Recyclable – aluminum has little to no impact on the environment and can be recycled
without losing any of its characteristics or integrity, and it only takes 5% of the energy to recycle
aluminum that it does to produce primary metal.
