ALUMINIUM’S ATTRIBUTES

Aluminium has many attributes, a number of which benefit the cookware market, such as:

  • LOW MASS – A key ingredient when one considers transport and handling
  • GOOD STRENGTH – Particularly after forming which helps prevent denting and other defects
  • DUCTILITY – It is extremely malleable and lends itself well to the stringent drawing and forming processes required of it in the manufacturing of cookware
  • CORROSION RESISTANCE – 1200 alloy is mostly used in the manufacturing of aluminium pots and pans and is highly resistant to most forms of corrosion. The metals natural coating of Aluminium Oxide provides a highly effective barrier to the ravages of air, temperature and moisture. It does not rust
  • HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY – Aluminium’s thermal conductivity is four times that of steel and eight times that of cast iron and proves extremely useful where applications involving heating and cooling are concerned. For this reason aluminium is also used in the base of all stainless steel cookware
  • NON-TOXIC & IMPERVIOUS – These qualities have long established their importance in food, packaging and pharmaceutical industries. The metal releases no odours or taste impairment substances
  • FINISH – Aluminium looks good in its natural finish
  • TEMPERATURE – Aluminium can be used up to 260 degrees centigrade and does not fracture or become brittle
  • TOTALLY RECYCLABLE – Environmentally responsible with no downgrading of its qualities
