Aluminum Point is shaped on one or both ends. The 50 mm (2 in) length lasts through hundreds of drawings.
Aluminum Point is made from 1100 alloy aluminum wire. Available in two widths, the wide point (2 mm diameter) is shaped on both ends, a cone on one end and a bevel on the other end. The thin point (0.9 mm) is shaped to a cone only on one end. All points measure 5 cm (2 inches) in length.
Aluminum 1100 Alloy is an aluminum-based alloy in the “commercially pure” wrought family (1xxx series) of aluminum. With a minimum of 99% aluminum, it is the most heavily alloyed of the 1000 series. It is also the mechanically strongest alloy in the series, and is the only 1000-series alloy commonly used in rivets. At the same time, it keeps the benefits of being relatively lightly alloyed (compared to other series), high electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance, and workability.
All Aurum metal points fit in the Aurum Silverpoint Dual Stylus.
