Aluminium is the worlds most used metal after steel, mainly extracted form bauxite, and its supply is comparatively stable. In particular, aluminium is highly recyclable and the energy required to produce a recycled ingot from scrap is only about 3% of that required to produce primary aluminium. Because it is comparatively lightweight, it can be said that aluminium is also environmentally friendly in transport and delivery.
The surface is anodized after it is molded and polished, and a naturally silver oxidized layer is generated. Anodized aluminium has a unique soft gloss, feeling, warmth, and gentleness, which is very precious. Moreover, users do not need to be concerned with fingerprints on the surface, with the advantage of minimizing daily cleaning. Special color coated products is also available on request.
