As far as extant records indicate aluminium was first used in construction in 1884 in the capping of the Washi-ngton Monument, USA. Since then it has been extensively used in the roofs of churches and administrative office buildings in the west. In India aluminium began to be used in the early thirties of this century in the form of uten-sils for kitchenware. Since then the industry has assumed sizeable proportions. Today the total installed capacity is 108000 tonnnes against which there is a demand of nea-rly 15000 tonnes.
