Endless possibilities for innovation
With its unparalleled possibilities for tailoring shapes and forms, aluminum 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 aluminum has become the material of choice for an increasing number of industries.
Aluminum 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.
Aluminum 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 aluminum in every form imaginable, and beyond.
Aluminum can be manipulated with various alloys to equal and even surpass the strength of steel, allowing for exchanging steel in most constructions.
Aluminum 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.
Aluminum 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 aluminum is that 75% of all aluminum 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.
