In the modern world we encounter aluminium at every turn. This is due to the particular properties of the metal. Aluminium has a low density, which means that at the same volume aluminium has only about one third of the mass of iron, steel or copper. Therefore, aluminium is excellently suited as packaging material, for example. In addition, aluminium can be rolled out very thin and thus it can be processed to thin foils relatively easily. If the material thickness is adjusted larger, light but nevertheless very stable transport containers can be prepared.
