Aluminium
Definition:

This metal stands out due to its very low density of 2,7 g/cm³ (approx. 3 times lighter than steel) and is especially used for the frame and shelves. Aluminium is very reactive right after being machined and therefore reacts with the substances of the surrounding environment, air and humidity, which covers the material with a protective oxide layer. This oxide layer prevents a further corroding of the aluminium but is dissolvable in acids and bases. Thus a direct contact with chemicals should be avoided.
