How aluminium is produced

Re-melted ingot

Foundry alloys

In addition to the liquid metal and aluminum ingots in P1020 alloy, Albras has recently started production of PFA, P0610, P1015 and bus bars ingots.

The Primary Foundry Alloy (PFA) is a product created especially for the automotive industry and developed from the primary metal P0610, with the addition of four elements: silicon, magnesium, strontium and titanium. The P0610 and P1015 have greater purity, ideal to serve customers seeking innovative solutions.
