Aluminum is a metal with light weight, high strength, easy to shape, corrosion resistance and surface treatment for decorative appearance. Because of all these unique features, it is used in almost every field, including the modern construction industry. When it comes to architecture, aluminum extrusion profiles and accessories appear at every stage of the building sector, from verandahs and doors in our houses to the tallest skyscrapers.
Aluminum is one of the most widely used metals in modern industry due to the optimum combination of the various properties it contains:
Aluminum’s low density and high weight-to-strength ratio provide advantages in many industrial applications.
With alloying and proper heat treatment, its mechanical properties can reach the level comparable to steel. With this feature, aluminum has become indispensable for Automotive, Defense and aerospace, aerospace, machinery manufacturing, etc. sectors.
Easy to Form
Aluminum alloys; cold or hot forming methods such as Rolling, extrusion, forging allow for a wide range of cross-section production.
Easy To Process
Aluminum has high performance chip removal ability by alloying, the workability of its special alloys is strictly comparable with brass.
Long-Lasting and Resistant to Wear
Surface protection can be achieved by increasing the natural protective oxide layer by anodic oxidation processes that can be applied to aluminum.
Increases Electrical and Thermal Conductivity
Aluminum has excellent specific electrical conductivity, which makes it indispensable for electrical and electronic applications. It can also be preferred in all applications where heat conduction is required.
It is a non-toxic material that is largely used by the food industry in food preparation and preservation processes.
Aluminum can be easily recycled with limited energy costs.
