Extrusions deliver an efficient geometry, offering multiple functions:
- Torsional stiffness
- Many shapes available
- Ease of assembly &and integration
- Long life in corrosive environment
Aluminum forms a natural aluminum oxide layer, and it protects well against environmental conditions. Not every material fares so well.
Materials & Performance Characteristics
The aluminum extrusion market is supported by a robust supply chain of material providers, extruders, and companies well-equipped to support post-processing including fabrication, application engineering, and full assemblies.
