Aluminum fitting is highly preferred because aluminum is a corrosion resistant and lightweight metal. It is able to accommodate even high temperatures if need be. In its own right, aluminum is characterized by low tensile strength, which makes it more useful in various low pressure applications that depend mostly on its low density and corrosion resistance. To boost its use as one of the best fitting items, its hardness and strength is enhanced through alloying it with copper, zinc, manganese, silicon and a few other elements. The performance of the aluminum fitting will depend on the aluminum grade used and heat treatment. Aluminum fittings are commonly used in projects that demand it to be of light weight. At times, they are used widely with aluminum and plastic tubing.

Fitting materials must be selected carefully depending on the specific application in question. Fitting profiles are majorly based on various factors like corrosion resistance, strength and ability to handle high pressures safely. Besides this, a good fitting material must be able to resist corrosion and rust from different media outside and inside the application.While selecting supplier and material for the aluminium profiles all the above factors has been duly considered.
