Summary

On a microscopic scale, refined aluminium has a crystalline structure; the crystal lattice is made up of atoms arranged in face-centred cubic unit cells.
Refined aluminium has low density, very high electrical conductivity and good thermal conductivity, is non-magnetic and has a high reflectance for light, heat and electromagnetic radiation.
