Pure aluminium is relatively soft. To overcome this, it can be alloyed with other metals. We have developed aluminium alloys that are tailored to cover most of the applications in the industry. They are available globally.
The extrusion process, combined with proper selection of alloy and quenching, provides an infinite number of extruded aluminium profile applications and product improvements. For instance, the 6060 alloy offers a corrosion-resistant extrusion with an excellent finish. Alloys can be improved by heat treatment after extrusion.
