HTS-200 Aluminum

Hi guys.

Here’s a video about how HTS-200 Aluminum is used for tools and products reparaiments.

Requires no chemicals and repaire all aluminum alloys and work with any torch. It is very resistent, faster and less expensive than other methods.

It’s a kind of aluminum welding that’s used not only to join pieces, but to replace its parts, improve and provide better and more resilient in different products.

Great aluminum innovations.

Recycling Aluminum

Check this out! It’s a very interesting video about aluminum cans recycling! And how this process is one of the most ecological in world! Aluminun can be recycled on its 100%, it’s a great raw material.

Aluminum recycling is the process by which scrap aluminum can be reused in products after its initial production. The process involves simply re-melting the metal, which is far less expensive and energy intensive than creating new. Recycling scrap aluminum requires only 5% of the energy used to make new aluminium.

Sources for recycled aluminium include foundries, aircraft, automobiles, bicycles, boats, computers, cookware, gutters, siding, wire and many other products that require a strong light weight material, or a material with high thermal conductivity. As recycling does not damage the metal’s structure, aluminium can be recycled indefinitely and still be used to produce any product for which new aluminium could have been used.

Great, doesn´t it?

Why Aluminium?

Aluminium is a young material and is the metal of choice for leading designers, architects and engineers, all of whom are looking for a material which combines functionality and cost-effectiveness with forward looking form and design potential.

Aluminium is an extraordinarily versatile material , the range of forms it can take and variety of surface finishes available means it lends itself to a wide range of products. The metal’s light weight and numerous material qualities mean that products have been designed for use in all areas of modern life.  It is a good conductor of electricity and most overhead and many underground transmission lines are made of aluminium.  It transmits conducted heat and reflects radiant heat, making it an excellent medium from which to produce cooking utensils and foils, radiators and building insulation.  Its strength, combined with low density, make it ideal for transport and packaging applications. Aluminium is a unique metal: strong, durable, flexible, impermeable, lightweight, corrosion-resistant and a hundred percent recyclable, its unique combination of properties makes it suitable for myriad applications.

That’s why Aluminium.

cloud chair, amazing aluminum furniture

Amazing isn’t it? Cloud chair from Richard Hutten is a polished and nickel plated aluminum casting, looks impeccable, it was produced by Ormond Editions in Holland, and was shown at the Milan design fair in 2009.

What do you think? Maybe it is not the most functional piece of furniture you can find, but sure is completely elegant and amazing, manufactured with a very high quality, Cloud Chair dimensions are 125/95/85 cm and weights 80kg.

It was produced in a limited edition, only 8 pieces were made, we don’t have the price but probably they are already sold out.

Amazing what you can achieve with aluminum castings, if you need more information about the kind of process they must have done visit this section of Torrey Foundry webpage.

aluminum anodizing

Aluminum anodizing is basically an electrolytic passivation process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on metal surfaces, which increase the corrosion resistance on the material. The anodic film that is formed around the metal, thou more brittle, is much stronger and adherent than most types of paint, it is also less likely to crack, but more susceptible to crack from thermal stress.

Some aluminum foundries offer aluminum finishing services, on which they include aluminum anodizing, this might be a huge advantage for your time requirements, be sure to check your requirements and your aluminum casting provider services.

aluminum properties slideshow

Check out this aluminum properties presentation from Moiz Barry that we found on slideshare.net

Is are very basic stuff, extremely important for aluminum foundries to work properly.
