Nowadays, it is almost impossible to find a sector that does not use the incredible potential underlying the properties of aluminum. we are witnessing the use of aluminum in countless areas, such as; cars to space vehicles, from packaging materials to stadiums roof structures.
The use of aluminum in the automotive sector is
a unique example. Aluminum alloys replacing the steel made it possible to
produce lighter vehicles that consume less fuel. Less fossil fuel consumption
also helps reduce carbon footprint.
ALUMINUM PROVED ITSELF AS AN IMPORTANT BUILDING MATERIAL USED IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE.Almost a quarter of all aluminum produced in the world is used in the construction industry.
Durability and Lightness
In terms of structure, it can meet the minimum
force requirements and even comes up. But still 35-45% lighter than steel.
The use of aluminum allows the unique extrusion
designs to deliver the flexibility required by a particular project by
integrating a large number of functions into a single profile.
General wear and tear on the steel - even if
galvanized or otherwise coated - will expose the steel to corrosion in
particularly humid environments, which will lead to metal fatigue, reducing
life cycle and increasing maintenance costs. Aluminum displays the opposite of
the behavior of the steel with the protective aluminum oxide layer on it, which
resists aggressive chemical pollutants and formation of rust causing
substances. It is self-reforming by thickening and flattening even when
scratched or cut. This process provides the most natural protection of aluminum without
the need for an extra coating. This passive (passivation) process, which
counteracts the corrosion and deterioration of the material, will extend the
life of the structure and components and will ensure that virtually no
maintenance is required.
Along with the above-mentioned features,
aluminum is an excellent alternative to climate systems due to its excellent
thermal conductivity which is about 2 and a half times better than steel.
The use of this material, which is fully recyclable, is very advantageous in terms of both monetary and environmental aspects. The production of new aluminum is a process that requires a lot of energy, which often causes extra greenhouse gas emissions.
How much long-lived the aluminum is in the
greenhouse, it will also reduce the change / maintenance costs and reduce the
demand for raw materials. Although the aluminum industry has struggled to
achieve 25% share of recycled aluminum in global production and 40% reduction
in carbon footprint, there
is still much to do to meet the growing demand.
Greenhouse Systems see the development of technology as a corporate
responsibility to use innovation as a means of building a greener future.
