Cast aluminium is created when methods such as die, mould or sand casting are used to temper the aluminum for use in creating components for many different types of products. This type of aluminum is used for a number of items around the house, as well as machinery and other products that are necessary in the manufacturing of a wide range of goods.

One of the most common applications of cast aluminum is in cookware as it is used for skillets, baking pans, and other kitchen essentials as the cookware can withstand the high temperatures required to cook food properly and will remain useful for a number of years with no more than minimal care.

It is also used to create outdoor furniture, including chairs, gliders, and tables, aluminum patio furniture is somewhat more lightweight and can be moved around the place with greater ease than heavier steel options.
