Hydro is a leading supplier of high-grade aluminium alloys, which are tailor-made mixtures of aluminium and other metals to enhance and enrich material properties.
We often develop the alloy in close cooperation with our customers, ensuring a perfect match between the metal and the challenge at hand.
Aluminium alloys are usually used to enhance aluminium’s properties for specific engineering structures and components where light weight or corrosion resistance are important. The most common elements used in aluminium alloys are magnesium, silicon, manganese, zinc and copper.
Aluminium is light, strong, and resistant to corrosion and cracking in itself. And when mixed with small amounts of other metals, its strength can equal that of steel, while maintaining its low weight and ductility.
