discovery channel explores the versatility of aluminium
What makes aluminum so versatile that it can be used to bake potatoes and go into space?
 
Alcoa employees from Australia recently helped explain the magic of aluminium to the new Discovery Channel television series in the US called How Stuff Works.
 
The one-hour program shows that aluminum is a critical ingredient in everything from lasers to soft drink cans, airplanes to bulletproof glass, and that aluminum is still inspiring innovation after decades of use.
 
Dr. Mohammad Zaidi, Alcoa Executive Vice President Market Strategy, Technology, and Quality, who is among the Alcoa employees featured in the program, says, “Aluminum is everywhere. And there’s a reason for that. It’s a versatile material. Aluminum combines all the characteristics required to be more versatile for design. Aluminum is the metal of the future.”
 
The Discovery Channel is part of Discovery Communications, the world’s number one non fiction media company reaching more than 1.5 billion subscribers in over 170 countries. Discovery empowers people to explore their world and satisfy their curiosity.
