Choosing the right alloy

Pure aluminum is relatively soft. To overcome this, it can be alloyed with other metals. We have developed aluminum alloys that are tailored to cover most of the aluminum extrusion applications in the industry. They are available globally.

Infinite number of aluminum extrusions applications

The extrusion process, combined with proper selection of alloy and quenching, provides an infinite number of applications and product improvements. For instance, Alloy 6060 offers a corrosion-resistant extrusion with an excellent finish. Alloys can be improved by heat treatment after extrusion.
