The Benefits of Aluminum
Aluminum is a ubiquitous product on the market today – it’s used for parts of light bulbs, soda cans, foil, and even auto parts. Here’s why aluminum is the best material for your custom case…even if the British do pronounce it strangely.
When you’re shipping things, you don’t want to add a lot of weight to the cases. It makes them more expensive and more difficult to ship. Just because something is lightweight doesn’t mean it’s not durable. When aluminum is made into an alloy with other metals that don’t add much weight, it becomes even more useful.
Aluminum does not rust or corrode in most cases because it generates its own oxide coating that protects it from the harmful effects that oxygen and water can have on some metals. If you take care of your aluminum cases, there is a good chance that they can last you for years. They’re ideal for shipping in damp and adverse conditions.
Shipping sensitive medical equipment is a job that aluminum is well-designed for since it is odorless and impermeable. It does not let light, scent, or taste in or out of the packaging. Shipping food, clothing, or other sensitive equipment also works very well with aluminum cases.
