Aluminum systems are used as building materials and building sector is the biggest consumer of raw materials and energy. Environmental concerns regarding the design and construction of building applications is getting much significant and in the construction field, the building consumes a great amount of energy. Therefore, as a measure to provide sustainable forms and methods to reduce consumption of energy certain alternatives are to be taken into consideration. On the basis of alloy type, the global aluminum systems market is segmented into wrought aluminum alloy and cast aluminum alloy.
Aluminum being a lightweight material offers the construction industry to design a safe, energy-efficient and an eco-friendly framework. These materials can be used for a wide range of design and manufacturing process and in engineering terms, aluminum is classified as a metal whose basic ingredient is either aluminum or aluminum alloy.
Pure aluminum is a metal commonly used for structural purpose in construction. It becomes high in tensile strength when it is added to other metals such as magnesium or with metalloids. Aluminum alloys are formed with the metals; whose strength is high and reaches a higher threshold. Structural aluminum alloys are categorized in various segments with reference to their chemical composition and the processes. Further, their physical properties such as lightness are much advantageous to the erection phases and can be simplified minimizing the loads and the heavy physical labor.
