Why is Aluminum Used in Storage Transport Boxes 

2 minutes, 13 seconds Read

Aluminum, the second most widely utilized metal after steel and the third most abundant chemical element on Earth after oxygen and silicon, plays a pivotal role in various everyday applications. This makes economic, safety, and environmental sense, which is why KASSICO has chosen to primarily manufacture innovative aluminum box using this lightweight metal.

The numerous advantages of aluminum, elaborated below, make it an exceptionally versatile material for a wide range of product solutions:

  1. Lightweight and Exceptionally Durable: aluminum storage box boasts a density of only 0.094 to 0.101 lb/in³ (2.6 to 2.8 g/cm³), approximately one-third that of steel, while still maintaining impressive strength.
  2. Machinability:Aluminum is highly machinable, allowing for efficient use in processes such as milling, drilling, grinding, cutting, welding, and molding.
  3. Impact Resistance:Although aluminum surfaces may dent upon impact, they effectively absorb impact energy, enhancing protection for the contents.
  4. Corrosion Resistance:Aluminum naturally forms an oxide layer on its surface when exposed to oxygen, immediately repairing any damage and offering robust corrosion resistance.
  5. Recyclability:Aluminum stands out as one of the most recyclable materials, capable of being recycled repeatedly.
  6. Temperature Stability:Aluminum remains consistent within a broad temperature range of -238°F to +302°F (-150 to +150 °C).
  7. Moisture Resistance:Aluminum is impervious to moisture, even during long-term storage, and can be welded to create moisture-tight enclosures.
  8. UV Resistance:Aluminum remains unaffected by prolonged exposure to UV radiation, making it suitable for extended storage periods.
  9. Hygienic and Easy to Clean:The smooth, non-porous surface of aluminum is easy to clean and maintain, making it ideal for applications with strict hygiene requirements.
  10. Magnetically Neutral:Aluminum is devoid of ferromagnetism, a crucial characteristic for certain specialized applications.
  11. Excellent Electrical and Thermal Conductivity:Aluminum excels as a conductor of both electricity and heat, making it suitable for electronic installations where shielding is required.
  12. Surface Finishing Options:Aluminum can be further enhanced through surface finishing techniques, such as powder coating for added protection and anodizing for superior abrasion and corrosion resistance.

In conclusion, aluminum’s unique combination of lightweight, durability, resistance to environmental factors, and recyclability makes it an optimal choice for storage and transport boxes, ensuring both functionality and sustainability.
