The world is transitioning to renewable energy, and that is causing the demand for conductive metals for motors and wiring to grow dramatically. Copper has been the traditional choice, but it is becoming increasingly difficult to extract and produce, so people are trying to offer alternatives. One of the most curious
It's so hot in the UK that they've started wrapping their bridges in aluminum foil A 135-year-old Victorian bridge wrapped in albal paper to try to keep it from overheating and cracking. It's the result of a timeless heatwave in the UK that has put a country not just in the middle of a
Tips and recommendations for cleaning and maintenance of aluminum Today we are going to develop a series of practical tips for cleaning and maintenance of aluminum. In order to preserve its aesthetic finish and functionalities as the first day, it is important to take into account its periodic care. The first thing to do is to recognize
PNNL scientists have succeeded in increasing the conductivity of aluminum Scientists at PNNL (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) are proposing how to increase the conductivity of aluminum, making it economically competitive with copper. The first simulation of the conductivity of aluminum opens the door to experiments that, if fully realized, could lead to an alternative to copper.
