primary aluminum


Explanation:
Careful with raw aluminum - although that is apparently acceptable - lots of Internet hits!

BUUUTTTTTT

primary aluminum is a bigger hitter, methinks.
Check with your client perhaps?
Careful with your spelling, there's an (Atlantic) ocean of difference here between
aluminum (AmE), aluminium (BrE)

I hope this helps,

Phil

Raw or pure aluminum


Explanation:
I don't know if there is a more correct, technical term, but it seems to mean that it is strictly aluminum and not some composite. Hope this helps.

Coarse or untreated aluminum


Explanation:
El autor se está refiriendo específicamente a un tipo de aluminio que no ha sido tratado ni pintado que se utiliza en construcción para dar un toque rústico.
Coarse sería lo más adecuado si es aluminio sin pulir, mientras que Untreated tendría más sentido si el material no ha sido sometido a algún recubrimiento.

Untreated aluminum or raw aluminum


Explanation:
I've seen more of the first than the second term. However, perhaps your client prefers one to the other. Buena suerte!

I prefer the term untreated aluminum.


Explanation:
It is undoubted that it refers to aluminum that has not been exposed to any kind of process. It is advisable to check with the client the context where this term is used. Good luck!

crude aluminum


Explanation:
Others have suggested raw, pure, untreated, but I think crude provides a better descriptor in this case (IMHO).
