Aluminum extrusion is one of the most common methods of producing aluminum products. Extruded aluminum products are used every day in innovative application areas around the world. There is no limit to the possibilities of using aluminum profiles. They are used for their strength, flexibility, durability and sustainability in a number of end-user industries such as construction, transportation, electricity, machinery and consumer durables. They are 100% recyclable and easy to handle and emit very few harmful gases.
Extrusion is replacing steel in the transportation and construction industry, mostly for its lightness and corrosion resistance quality, as well as its endless recyclability. The building and construction industry is the largest market for aluminum extrusion. It is estimated that about 65% of the aluminum content in construction will be recycled annually. Its use in buildings and construction is expected to increase in the near term in doors, windows, panels, window frames, stairs and bridges.
