Aluminium sheet

lastra-alluminio

Aluminium sheet is a very versatile product, not only for the characteristics that it can be given in the cold and hot rolling mill, but also because of its suitability to a wide range of applications and processes. Its surface can be treated in many ways: painted, plated, polished, colored, coated, laminated, anodized, etched or textured. (more…)

Aluminium Properties

caratteristiche-alluminio

When we talk about aluminium properties, we mean all the intrinsic properties of this material. First of all, we have to underline that aluminium is versatile and flexible: it can be easily forged and reworked into a number of shapes  – sheets, strips, coil -. Having said that, we have to remember that it is the third most abundant element and metal of the Earth’s crust. Thanks to its abundance and characteristics, it has an excellent quality / price ratio. (more…)

Aluminium recycling and circular economy

Thanks to its characteristics, aluminium can be defined as the most circular material: it can be recycled without losing its original properties and can be easily used in a lot of sectors including automotive, transport, building, packaging and renewable energies. For this reason, the European Aluminium hypothesizes a 40 percent growth in demand for aluminium between 2019 and 2050. (more…)

Aluminium thickness: foils and sheets

lamiere-di-alluminio

Aluminium foils and sheets are used in multiple sectors and markets. But, for each field of application thickness, alloys and shapes change according to customers’ needs and the use of final product. (more…)

Semi rigid Packaging: materials and examples

Sheets and foils are the most widely used form of aluminium because they can be formed into a lot of shapes using different technologies. They’re found in all of industry’s major markets: packaging, transportation, building, home appliances, industrial applications. (more…)

Aluminium sheets: main applications

Aluminium sheets are among the most widely used types of materials today. This happens thanks to some specific properties that make them very deployed across an enormous variety of industrial, agricultural and manufacturing applications. (more…)

Aluminium Alloys

Aluminium alloys consist of aluminium and another or more elements, most commonly copper, silicon, manganese and magnesium that improve the properties of this metal. Aluminium alloys, known as light alloys, are characterized by the following features: (more…)

Aluminium sheets and coils

aluminium

The most common use of aluminium sheets include transportation, construction and aerospace. They are used particularly in these sectors because of them unbeatable strength to weight ratio: aluminium is indeed a very light material. In addition, it’s an excellent heat and electricity conductor and, it is particularly useful for applications where it is exposed to corroding agents because of its anticorrosive property. (more…)
