Introduction and Process

The versatility of aluminium as a metal is complemented by the versatility of the extrusion process. Other metals can be extruded but few with the ease of aluminium and its alloys. Aluminium’s high strength-to-weight ratio, and its ability to be extruded into any shape – no matter how complex, with tight tolerances, make it an ideal material for design applications which require maximum versatility from a cross-sectional area. Aluminium extrusions are also highly cost effective since they need virtually no machining or maintenance.

Less fabrication and machining: Some shapes achievable by extrusion are unattainable by any other process

Great structural efficiency: optimum structural efficiency is possible, as, by using extrusions, metal can be placed where it adds strength and omitted where it is not needed.

A wide range of attractive, corrosive-resistant finishes: can be achieved through powder or electrophoretic coating; designers can specify virtually any colour they wish. Natural silver or colour anodized films are also available.
