Do you need to buy aluminum in large quantities? If you are Qatari, you probably want to be up to date with prices in your local currency. For this type of case, we recommend using an API.
Aluminum is a metallic element that is located in group 13 of the periodic table, in an intermediate position between magnesium and silicon. Its atomic number is 13, it has an atomic mass equal to 26.91, and is symbolically represented as Al. It is the third most abundant element in the crust of planet Earth, with 8.2%.
Aluminum is one of the most used metals by man. One of its main uses is in the field of electrical energy and communication, where it is usually used to manufacture parts for antennas and satellites (due to its good conductive properties). It is also useful in construction, from doors and windows; to pipes and structural elements. Even in the car industry, to reduce the total weight of the bodywork and the vehicle in general.
As Qatar hosts this year FIFA World Cup, evidently, its demands for aluminum increased exponentially. For this reason, many Arab industries are buying tons of this material to meet the huge Qatari demand. For those people, they surely want to be up to date with aluminum prices and be able to see them in Qatari Riyal. Fortunately for that, there is a tool that will help them.
It’s about Metals-API, an API to see metal prices.
You should give Metals-API a try!
Metals API is an API designed to offer you the updated prices of all the metals on the planet (and yes, aluminum is included). In fact, it has an accuracy of 2 decimal points and a frequency as high as every 60 seconds. In other words, if a price rise or fall were to occur, we would know about it in as little as 60 seconds. This can save a lot of money, especially for companies that need to purchase large amounts of aluminum.
By the way, Metals-API gives you the possibility to choose between 170 currencies from all over the world. For example, USD, Euro and Qatari Riyal. If you’re wondering where they get their prices from, they do so from 16 of the world’s most trusted and secure sources like Chainlink, Jewelers Mutuals Group, Injective Protocol, among others.
