The choice of material is a critical decision in all product development.
Aluminium makes it possible to give the product suitable physical and mechanical properties at the same time achieving an aesthetically attractive appearance. Furthermore, the extrusion technique, combined with the right alloy and proper thermal treatment, offers an infinite number of application opportunities. It also forms the basis for product improvement.
Pure aluminium is only used in a limited way commercially. The majority of extrusions are made from aluminium alloyed with other metals.The most common elements are magnesium (Mg), silicon (Si), manganese (Mn), zinc (Zn) and copper (Cu).They form between 0.2 and 7.0 per cent of the alloys.
Some of our most common alloys are : HA 1050,, 6060, 6063, 6005, 6082 and 7108.
