Why Aluminum

Deposits of bauxite ore are mined and refined into alumina--one of the feedstocks for aluminum metal. Then alumina and electricity are combined in a cell with a molten electrolyte called cryolite. Direct current electricity is passed from a consumable carbon anode into the cryolite, splitting the aluminum oxide into molten aluminum metal and carbon dioxide. Aluminum came into commercial use during the late 19th century.

In particular, aluminum allowed metal to be utilized for applications requiring lightness, design versatility, and incredible strength and durability.

Because it is easily recycled, it also meets the tests of environmental responsibility.

Lightweight
At between 50 to 70 lbs. per square for the aluminum Interlock Roofing System, An Interlock Roof system is significantly lighter than any other conventional roofing products on the market today.
Tough
Aluminum keeps its toughness down to very low temperatures, without becoming brittle like carbon steels.
Reflective
Aluminum dissipates heat very quickly (taking foil out of the oven is a good example). Thus, your roof cools down quickly in the evening during the summer months.
Recyclable
Aluminum is completely recyclable.. even the scrap produced on the job site is recycled.
Durable
Aluminum is highly resistant to weathering, even in industrial atmospheres, which often corrode other metals.
