Aluminium Pipe fittings are ductile and silvery-white in colour. Aluminium is belongs in the boron group of elements. It is found in abundance on Earth. Aluminium pipe fittings are known for their remarkably low density. When exposed to corrosive environments, aluminium is known to create an oxidising layer on its surface. This layer protect the Pipe fittings from corrosion. Some commonly alloyed elements are manganese, magnesium, copper, zinc and silicon.
Aluminium Pipe fittings have only 30% of copper’s density. But the thermal and electrical conductivity, similar to that of copper. Aluminium can also be termed as super conductor as it can conduct 1.2Kelvin Temperature, and a magnetic field of 100 gauss. Superconductors are formed using aluminium. Aluminium Pipe fittings are developed in types like Elbows, Tees, Stub End, Pipe Cap, Cross and Pipe Bend. Aluminium finds use in packaging, transportation, beverage containers, street lightning poles, cooking utensils and electrical transmission lines. In exposure to oxidising environments aluminium creates a layer of oxide protecting it from damage. Properties of Aluminium Pipe fittings are enhanced using additional alloyants.
