The most innovative companies in the world trust aluminum. From the Apple iPhone to the sleekest modern appliances, designers use aluminum to make some of their most innovative products.
Aluminum is about one-third the weight of stainless steel, making for lighter but just as durable appliances.
Apple bought the first-ever commercial batch of carbon-free aluminum in 2019.
Thanks to its versatility, you’re likely never more than 6 feet away from a piece of aluminum.
Innovation in Action
Aluminum is everywhere. And you can track the metal's consumer history back to the early 1900s. Over the last century, companies have used aluminum in the electronics and appliances industry to make products lighter, smaller and more sustainable.
Apple has repeatedly turned to aluminum over the past two decades as the material of choice for some of its most iconic products – from the iPhone and iPad to the Macbook and Apple Watch.
Battery storage innovation is an important element of a more energy efficient future. Aluminum-ion batteries show great promise – charging faster and holding a far greater charge for longer than lithium-ion alternatives.
