What is aluminium?

Aluminium (Al) was originally discovered by German chemist Friedrich Wöhler in 1827 but its extraction process undertook various developments to become the popular product we see everywhere in modern life. Thanks to its durable and corrosion-resistant properties, aluminium products are often used in aerospace, car manufacturing, windows, packaging and even set building. As a highly recyclable metal, it is often considered the green choice in many applications, reducing the carbon footprint of many companies which is why aluminium is viewed as such an important material.
