aluminum alloy advantages and applications

aluminum alloy  – the properties 

Material properties such as light weight combined with high strength and resistance to corrosion contribute to low environmental loading. After iron, aluminium is now the second most widely used metal in the world.
This is because aluminum alloy has a unique combination of attractive properties:

•      Low weight
•      High strength
•      Superior malleability
•      Easy machining
•      Excellent corrosion resistance
•      Easy to mill, drill, cut, punch, bend, weld, bond, tape

aluminum alloy application for Automotive

With the increasing use of Aluminium in automobiles, anodising is the natural process for long lasting protection for components such as wheels,  roof racks, engine parts and interior trim.

Anodising’s ability to produce various textures and colours gives car designers ample opportunity to continue corporate and model themes and to develop new identities.

aluminum alloy for Panels & Sheet

All three production plants produce panels and sheet to British and European standards in up to 40 colours, all with a lifetime guarantee.  Uses for these products include building rain screen panels and decorative panelling, inside and out.

Formed panels can be anodised after fabrication to ensure lasting durability and corrosion protection.   Sheets may be formed and cut post anodising as any corrosion on untreated ends will not travel or undermine the film and its protection.
aluminum alloy recycling 

Aluminium can be reused for the same purposes over and over again. Unlike many other materials, aluminium does not lose its unique properties.
