About Bauxite (Aluminium)Hide

Bauxite is the main ore of aluminium (aluminum).

It is composed primarily of impure aluminium hydroxides along with a lot of silica, iron and other impurities.

It is usually formed as a weathering product of rocks rich in aluminium silicates.

Aluminium (or Aluminum) is a silvery soft nonmagnetic metal.

It is the most widely-used metal after iron, used in the manufacture of cars, aircraft, food packaging, construction and a vast range of other household objects.

Aluminium is usually alloyed with copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese or silicon to improve its mechanical properties, especially when tempered.
