Endless possibilities for innovation
With its unparalleled possibilities for tailoring shapes and forms, aluminium unlocks the creativity of designers and engineers alike. Add the unique properties of light weight, corrosion-resistent, steel-like strength and easy recycling, and it's no wonder aluminium has become the material of choice for an increasing number of industries.
Aluminium is only one-third the weight of iron and steel and is stronger than plastic. This makes for solutions that are smarter, greener and, in general, better for everybody.
Aluminium is extremely malleable and our rule of thumb is if you can draw it, we can shape it. Our extruded solutions enable designers, architects and engineers to shape aluminium in every form imaginable, and beyond.
Aluminium can be manipulated with various alloys to equal and even surpass the strength of steel, allowing for exchanging steel in most constructions.
Aluminium has great cost and weight advantages over copper, replacing the latter as the conductor of choice in utility grids such as housing, buildings, aircrafts and other appliances.
Aluminium may be the most sustainable construction material in the world. It is very resistant to corrosion compared to steel or breaks compared to plastic, and can be recycled over and over again.
Easy to recycle
An interesting fact about aluminium is that 75% of all aluminium ever produced is still in use. Recycling alumimium also requires very little energy, only 5 %of what’s needed to make the metal the first time.
