Advantages of Aluminium

Components made from aluminium extrusions are some of the commonest parts used in the manufacturing industry and can be seen in many day to day applications, from cars to aircraft and office equipment to lighting to name a few. The lightweight, durable and flexible design properties of aluminium extrusions give them a vast range of structural and finishing uses, whether in their naturally bright-unfinished form, powder coated, electroplated or anodised.

Aluminium extrusions can be produced in a vast range of shapes and sizes to suit the requirements of your particular product. A variety of alloys, heat treatment options and tempers are available to meet different functional product specifications. Innovative design will minimize machining and assembly times.

Product application

Furniture application of aluminum profile

Aluminium is extremely light weight about 1/3 of that of copper or steel. Excellent for use in the transportation industry, due to its lightweight, this may help reduce costs. Profiles can be made as strong as needed for most applications. Cold-weather applications are particularly well-served by aluminum because, as temperatures fall, aluminum actually becomes stronger!

Construction application of aluminum profile

Aluminium corrosion resistance makes it a good choice of material for use in the construction and buildings industry. It is the natural oxide coating on aluminium that gives its corrosive resistance. Anodising or powder coating can further protect the aluminium, which also provides a decorative finish. Aluminium has excellent strength to weight ratio making it ideal for use in situations where high strength and low weight are required.

Decoration application of aluminum profile

Aluminum Profiles are Economical. Extrusion tooling is relatively inexpensive and may not require long lead times. Even short-run prototypes often can be produced at moderate cost. Aluminum can be finished with liquid paint (including acrylics, alkyds, polyesters, and others), powder coatings, anodizing, or electroplating. Aluminum retains a high scrap value. It can be recycled indefinitely without losing any of its superior characteristics, making it especially appealing according to both environmental and economic criteria.
