Pure Aluminium is soft and lacks strength, but when commonly alloyed with small amounts of copper, magnesium, silicon, and other elements the metal takes on very useful properties. It is lightweight & non-magnetic and can be used in many applications including decorative purposes. Aluminium is a silvery-white metal with many desirable characteristics. It is easily formed, machined, or cast.

MICO Metals NZ :: Stainless Steel

This resistance to attack is due to the oxide film formed on the surface of the steel which forms naturally when exposed to oxygen. All stainless steels have a resistance to corrosion however care must be taken to choose the correct alloy to suit the application. Although extremely thin, this invisible, inert film is tightly adherent to the metal and extremely protective.
