Deposits of bauxite ore are mined and refined into alumina–one of the feedstocks for aluminum metal. Then alumina and electricity are combined in a cell with a molten electrolyte called cryolite. Direct current electricity is passed from a consumable carbon anode into the cryolite, splitting the aluminum oxide into molten aluminum metal and carbon dioxide. Aluminum came into commercial use during the late 19th century.
Immediately aluminum became known as a “metal of the future” and allowed for crucial developments to occur in the field of aviation and architecture, to name a few. In particular, aluminum allowed metal to be utilized for applications requiring lightness, design versatility, and incredible strength and durability.
Because it is easily recycled, it also meets the tests of environmental responsibility.
As a premier metal, aluminum is our choice as the backbone of The Oceanview Roofing series of products. We are proud to offer this to our customers and know that should you choose our product and services, you will be satisfied with your new roof for many years and decades to come.
