A typical magnet will not stick to aluminium under normal conditions. However, under the correct circumstances, a powerful magnet can interact with aluminium, though not to the level that it can with ferrous metals.
A strong magnet can effect any electrically conducting metal, even though nonferrous metals are not magnetic. Inducing an electric current to flow through typically nonmagnetic metal is one approach to alter it. The oscillations of the magnetic field can induce an electric current in aluminium if it is twisted into a coil and fed past a large permanent magnet. This field has its own polarity and can be modified to attract or repel the process’s stronger magnet.
