What makes aluminum?
Aluminum isn't made from anything, it is an element composed only of atoms of Aluminum.
Aluminum is purified from bauxite ore.
"Deodorant does not normally contain aluminum, but antiperspirant does, and the combination of deodorant and antiperspirant is where the aluminum comes into play. The aluminum is actually the substance that makes us not sweat. It combines with chemicals in our sweat to create a gel that blocks pores from releasing sweat."
Alexandrite is the highly regarded color changing variety of Chrysoberyl. The color of Alexandrite changes under different lighting conditions. If viewed in daylight, its color is greenish blue to dark yellow-green. If viewed in incandescent or candle light, its color is pink to red. Its chemical formula is BeAl2O4, it has a hardness of 8.5 on the Mohs scale and a refractive index of 1.744 - 1.755. Source: http://www.minerals.net/gemstone/alexandrite_gemstone.aspx
Scientists are starting to associate aluminum with the development of Alzheimer's. This makes all beverages in aluminum cans, food cooked in aluminum pots and pans, baked goods cooked in aluminum baking dishes, etc. all suspect. A prudent person, knowing this would eliminate their exposure to aluminum cookware of any type. See the link below.
The aluminum foil makes a good reflector for the infrared radiation. Although metals tend to be good conductors and aluminum is no exception, the fact that it is beaten extremely thin makes it difficult for to disperse throughout. As a result the aluminum stays relatively cool and the object in question continuously recycles the wasted heat energy that is emitted.
Yes, you can use an aluminum wire. Aluminum does conduct electricity. However, there is a well-known problem with aluminum wire. When exposed to air, the outer layer of aluminum forms a non-conductive oxide. There is resistance to the flow of electricity as it attempts to get through the aluminum oxide coating to the conductive aluminum below. When aluminum wire is used to reduce weight, it is usually welded to another metal that makes a better…
