Aluminum production process
Pure aluminium oxide, called alumina, is extracted from bauxite via a process called refining, composed of two steps: a digestion
process, using caustic soda, which allows theseparation of aluminium
hydroxide from the socalled"bauxite residue", followed by a calcination step
which removes the water content in the hydroxide.
Properties of aluminium include: low density and therefore low weight, high strength, superior malleability, easy machining, excellent corrosion Resistance and good thermal and electrical conductivity are amongst aluminium's most important properties.
