Electrical Aluminium Market

Aluminium has cost and weight advantages over copper and is the preferred material for electricity transmission and distribution uses today. Due to aluminium’s superior conductivity-to-weight ratio compared with copper, the metal is used extensively in electrical transmission and installations.  

Key Features

Aluminium’s use in the electrical market is driven by these key features:

Corrosion Resistance

Aluminium's inherent corrosion resistance ensures a long life of aluminium electrical components.


Aluminium is a superb conductor of electricity.
