The Aluminum is a metallic fibre, often used for decorative purposes, for example in lama and brocade, but because of their mechanical properties, they also have a number of technical applications. Aluminum is generally renowned for being extremely lightweight, whilst also very strong. It also has antistatic properties, does not tarnish, and reflects radiant heat and electromagnetic radiation. So it is perfect to use on protective clothing for demanding environments, like fire proximity suits.
