Aluminum

Non-ferrous metals (metals that do not contain iron): refer to all metals and alloys that are not iron and iron alloys. Non-ferrous metals are classified into the following groups:

  • Light metals (aluminum, titanium, magnesium), densities: 1,7 - 4,5 g/cm3;
  • Heavy metals (copper, lead, nickel, zinc, tin), densities: 4,5 - 11,3 g/cm3;
  • Precious metals (gold, silver and platinum group);Metal is hard to melt;
  • Metal dispersion; rare earth element (REE) consist of multiple non-ferrous metals.

thyssenkrupp Materials Vietnam is the distributor of non-ferrous metals that are internationally standardized with high quality. We can meet our customers’ diverse demands of: Aluminum and Copper, different alloys including aluminum and copper alloys, Cupronickel, Beryllium copper...

Aluminum is the most abundant metal to be found in the earth's crust (8.1%), but is never found free in nature. In addition to the minerals mentioned above, it is also found in granite and in many other common minerals. The oxide, alumina, occurs naturally as ruby (Al2O3), sapphire, corundum, and emery.

However, today, most of our aluminum is an artificial mixture of sodium, aluminum, and calcium fluorides. Aluminum can now be produced from clay, but the process is not economically feasible at present.

Aluminum is a light and soft silvery-white metal. 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. Aluminum’s density (2.7g/cm3) is only about one-third of iron’s and copper’s density. Aluminum is second in malleability among metals (behind gold), sixth in ductility and has melting point of about 660oC. Aluminum is easy to be processed or welded since it is corrosion-resistant and sustainable with the protective oxide layer. Moreover, aluminum is nonmagnetic and non-sparking.

thyssenkrupp Materials Vietnam distributes aluminum with multiple options for our customers’ diverse demands:

  • In addition to the highest quality aluminum alloys originated from Europe, we also provide diversified categories of aluminum as requested by customers.
  • We can provide a full range of aluminum from the big size requests (width: 2,000 mm) for constructions or shipbuilding to normal coils for manufacturing industries and household appliances (width: 1,000 mm). We also provide cutting services following specifications – our customers can completely rely on thyssenkrupp Materials Vietnam. 
  • With a diverse range of products, thyssenkrupp Materials Vietnam is confident to meet the requirements for raw materials, processing services, delivery as a whole package or in parts and to any location 

Common types of aluminum

  • Aluminum is extensively used for kitchen utensils, outside building decoration, and in thousands of industrial applications. Although aluminum’s electrical conductivity is only about 60% that of copper, it is used in electrical transmission lines because of its light weight.

Aluminum alloys 

Aluminum alloys are alloys of aluminum (Al) as the predominant metal and other elements such as copper, magnesium, manganese, silicon, tin and zinc. Pure aluminum is soft and lacks strength, but alloyed with small amounts of copper, magnesium, silicon, manganese, or other elements impart a variety of useful properties including being harder and more sustainable.

Aluminum alloys are suitable for different applications; some even regard them as the must used material such as airplane manufacturing and other aviation equipment.

Besides, Aluminum alloys are important in mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, mold manufacturing and construction.
