Aluminum is one of the most fundamental metals and as such it has a wide range of applications in the construction industry.
Acier Lachine’s warehouse stocks a large variety of aluminum in multiple forms readily available and more can be fabricated to suit our customers’ specific needs.

Here are the most common Aluminum characteristics:

  • It is a good electricity conductor

  • It is easily machined and thus easy to work with

  • It easily combines with other elements that are not affected by corrosion and heat

  • When alloyed with elements such as copper and magnesium, aluminum is very strong and can fit any commercial and industrial application

  • It does not require much maintenance because it is corrosion resistant

  • It can be recycled as many times as possible without degrading the qualities

  • When not combined with any other element, aluminum is ductile and has an average strength

  • It is non-toxic, non-magnetic and non-sparking

  • Aluminum is light
