Chemical Properties/ Re activity of the element- The surface of aluminum metal is covered with a thin layer of oxide, to help protect form attack by the air. So it won't usually react with air. If the layer is damaged and exposed to attack, it will burn with a white flame to form the trioxide aluminium oxide, Al2O3. And when Aluminum comes in contact with water with its layer damaged, it will release a highly flammable gas.
