Our stock range of aluminium alloys offers material grades of the highest possible quality.

Reducing Weight

Aluminium is 250% less dense than steel, and though the alloy is not as durable, the material offers characteristics that make it an attractive engineering raw material.

While steel is a harder and more durable alloy, unlike aluminium, the alloy is more prone to corrosion. Aluminium is also more malleable and easily formed into complex parts and components. Steel's impressive strength comes at a price - weight.

Greater Options

Aluminium may not be as structurally strong, but it gives designers realistic options to design parts where weight may be reduced without impacting strength. Typical examples include aerospace and motorsport applications. The alloy also performs well in corrosive environments.
