By adding controlled amounts of other metals (or metalloids) in order to improve or modify certain properties such as mechanical properties, formability, weldability, etc. This is how, more than 5000 years ago, the most ancient metallurgists discovered that by adding tin to copper, they produced an alloy that was easy to mould and that offered an outstanding resistance to marine corrosion. Sainte-Claire Deville prepared an aluminium alloy containing 10% silicon. The silversmith Charles Cristofle used an alloy containing 2% copper, thus harder and easier to chisel, for the objects that he manufactured in aluminium during the Second Empire.

85% 80% 70% 65% in in in in the building industry and public amenities, the transport sector, mechanical and electrical engineering, and household appliances. 1).

They do not stain uncoated or coated metal surfaces, contrary to rust on steel. ), because in case of a corrosive attack of the reactor, the corrosion products of aluminium do not alter the appearance of the products. Finally, it should be mentioned that anodising to a depth of a few micrometers helps to preserve optical properties, reflectance, and the decorative features of such products as luxury packaging for cosmetics and decorative panels for buildings. 5. 5) – – – – protecting certain alloys if their natural corrosion resistance is deemed insufficient, often the case with copper-containing alloys of the 2000 and 7000 series, preserving the surface aspect, in order to avoid pitting corrosion or blackening, modifying certain surface properties such as superficial hardness, and decorating the metal.
