Aluminium (or aluminum ) is a chemical element with the symbol Al and an atomic number of 13. It is a soft, ductile, malleable, non-ferrous, non-magnetic metal that is silvery-white in color.

It is also very chemically reactive, and is somewhat rarely found in its pure form, despite being the most abundant metal in the Earth's crust, and the third most abundant element overall. It is instead found combined in over 200 different minerals.

Because of its light weight, low density and ability to resist corrosion, aluminium and its alloys are used in a variety of industried and products. It is also relatively easy and cost-efficient to recycle.
