Building and construction

In our state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, quality assurance and environmental protection rightfully belong together.

Building facade

Aluminium strip and foil, whether converted or plain, can fulfill important requirements in the building and construction market:

  • Excellent surface finish
  • Even application of lacquer/paint
  • Constant color shades
  • High degree of flatness
  • Burr-free slit edges
  • Optimized corrosion resistance

In our state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, quality assurance and environmental protection rightfully belong together. Our products not only meet the highest quality requirements but are also produced according to EN, DIN, BS, ASTM and ECCA specifications. Our production sites are all certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

We use different alloys to suit the particular end-use application, for example,
AA 3005 for roller shutters and ceilings and AA 5042 for Venetian blinds.

Alubend

As a world first, Hydro developed and introduced the "Alubend" alloy. With this alloy, material thickness can be reduced by around 10 percent, while rigidity remains at the same high level.

Aluminium strip and foil are delivered in degreased, chromated and lacquered quality. Sheet material can also be supplied on request.
