I dont think most landscape lighting fixtures are made from pure Aluminum. Solid Aluminum would be like billet Aluminum and lathe cut from a solid chunk. Thats way too costly and slow. Fixtures are cast from a mold and the Aluminum must be made from an alloy. This alloy is similar to pot metal, and has a lower density. It must be coated or painted to resist corrosion. I don't know what they are coating fixtures in from China or Hong Kong, but most of the world uses industry standards. We've used coatings from Tiger Drylac and they have distribution on the entire globe. Technical specs should be available.
