Aluminium pipe fittings are widely used for plumbing activities these days. In fact, aluminum pipe fittings are preferred for aluminum pipes. Excellent properties like light weight and resistance to corrosion make aluminum a good choice for making pipe fittings.
Pure aluminum has a low tensile strength and is mostly preferred when resistance to corrosion is important. However, the aluminium easily forms alloy with elements like zinc, copper, silicon, manganese, etc, and the alloy is widely used for making fittings of increased strength and hardness.
