Interested in aluminum alloys?

We often develop the alloy in close cooperation with our customers, ensuring a perfect match between the metal and the challenge at hand.

Aluminum alloys are usually used to enhance aluminum’s properties for specific engineering structures and components where light weight or corrosion resistance are important. The most common elements used in aluminum alloys are magnesium, silicon, manganese, zinc and copper.

Aluminum 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.
