Aluminium is flexible

Your aluminium solution is highly dependent on the composition and quality of the ingot, and the production processes used.

To help you achieve your product goals, we:

  • Produce small-scale ingots in our laboratory for alloy development or research
  • Carry out hydrogen measurements in molten metal at the production sites
  • Carry out temperature measurements in homogenization furnaces
  • Study the dissolution of master alloys and compare the efficiency of different grain refiners
  • Use temperature measurements to map the solidification processes

The material

Pure aluminium is relatively soft. To overcome this, the metal can be alloyed with other metals.

What is an alloy?

Aluminium is not just aluminium. There are hundreds of different alloys and your product needs one. We will help you find it.
