Aluminium is an incredibly versatile material ideal for a number of uses where strength without bulk is required. The ability to be continually recycled and re-used without any loss of quality is another major plus. First discovered in 1857 in the form of the mineral Bauxite, aluminium has come into its own in the last 100 years. There are approximately 663 million tonnes of aluminium currently in use globally. Surprisingly 400 million tonnes of this metal exists in all it forms within buildings termed ‘Urban Mines’. The description of a ‘mine’ came about as this stored aluminium can be used and re-used by future generations for anything from aircraft engineering and electronics to consumer products. One of the areas in which aluminium excels is when used as double glazing where it is amazingly effective as an aid to energy efficiency.
