Aluminium for 3D Printing

A ductile, conductive 3D printing material

Aluminium (Al, ordinal number 13 in the periodic system of elements) belongs to the light metals group and cannot be found naturally in solid form. Aluminium is obtained from bauxite and is the third most common element on the earth´s surface. Aluminium has a density of 2.7 g/cm3 and has a melting point of 660 centigrade. It can be processed relatively easily by casting, machining and pressing. Due to its low strength it is used to produce alloys from silicon, magnesium, copper, manganese and zinc. Aluminium oxide (Al2 O3 ) can also be found extensively as a ceramic.
