Aluminium is a chemical element with the symbol Al and atomic number 13. It is a silvery-white, soft, non-magnetic and ductile metal in the boron group. By mass, aluminium makes up about 8% of the Earth's crust; it is the third most abundant element after oxygen and silicon and the most abundant metal in the crust, though it is less common in the mantle below. The chief ore of aluminium is bauxite. Aluminium metal is highly reactive, such that native specimens are rare and limited to extreme reducing environments. Instead, it is found combined in over 270 different minerals.
Aluminium is remarkable for its low density and its ability to resist corrosion through the phenomenon of passivation. Aluminium and its alloys are vital to the aerospace industry and important in transportation and building industries, such as building facades and window frames. The oxides and sulfates are the most useful compounds of aluminium.
Aluminium is the most widely used non-ferrous metal. The global production of aluminium in 2016 was 58.8 million metric tons. It exceeded that of any other metal except iron (1,231 million metric tons).
Aluminium is almost always alloyed, which markedly improves its mechanical properties, especially when tempered. For example, the common aluminium foils and beverage cans are alloys of 92% to 99% aluminium. The main alloying agents are copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese, and silicon with the levels of other metals in a few percent by weigh.
Copper is a chemical element with the symbol Cu (from latin: cuprum) and atomic number 29. It is a soft, malleable, and ductible metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. A freshly exposed surface of pure copper has a pinkish-orange colour. Copper is used as a conductor of heat and electricity, as a building material, and as a constituent of various metal alloys, such as sterling silver used in jewelry, cupronickle used to make marine hardware and coins, and constantan used in strain, guages and thermocupoles for temperature measurement.
Copper is one of the few metals that can occur in nature in a directly usable metallic form . This led to very early human use in several regions, from c. 8000 BC. Thousands of years later, it was the first metal to be smelted from sulfide ores, c. 5000 BC, the first metal to be cast into a shape in a mold, c. 4000 BC and the first metal to be purposefully alloyed with another metal, tin, to create bronze c. 3500 BC.
Au (from Latin: Aurum). Bullion gold has been one of the most valuable stores of wealth for thousands of years. Throughout history, it has always held its value, thriving and surviving during times of economic uncertainty. Au Bullion Gold and raw gold (Bars, Powder, Dore and Nuggets) are a portable asset, readily convertible worldwide. Gold does not rust, corrode or tarnish and is immune to the effects of water, oxygen and weather. Unlike numismatic coins or jewelry, gold has no artistic component in its value. It’s one of the safest investments, and is high in value due to its extreme rarity.
The minimum purity of gold is 99.5%. Many companies and jewelers use bullion Gold or several forms of Raw Gold to produce the products they offer to their customers. Private individuals use gold as an investment or potential store of value. Since 1919 London has been the most common benchmark for the price of gold. The London gold fixing rate is established via a twice-daily telephone meeting of representatives from five bullion-trading firms of the London bullion market. Furthermore, gold is traded continuously throughout the world based on the intra-dayspot price, derived from over-the-counter gold-trading markets around the world (code "XAU"). Bullion or gold coins are the most direct asset an investor can have. In anything but very small quantities, the need to store and insure physical gold, and the transaction fees associated with buying and selling it, represent hidden costs than can be substantial, particularly for high net worth investors trying to put a portion of their portfolio in the metal. MARCUSBERESFORD Ltd can help you get your Gold directly CIF for any safe world port (ASWP).
