Trends in the Improving Economic use of Aluminium

Parker, R T (1968) Trends in the Improving Economic use of Aluminium. In: UNSPECIFIED.



INDUSTRIAL usage of aluminium is increasing at a rate of about 10% every year . Whereas in 1958 the total world production of primary metal was rather less than 4 in short tons, in 1968 it is expected to be over 9 m tons. The reasons leading to the initial usage of aluminium for any given application are usually either technical or strategic. Considerations of weight, durability, appearance or conductivity may lead to the adoption of aluminium in preference to other materials or, alternatively, shortages of domestic supplies of other materials and of foreign exchange, may dictate the employment of locally produced aluminium.
