PERFORMANCE DESIGN AND ENVIRONMENT
1) Die forged aluminium provides both increased mechanical resistance and perfect water-tightness.
2) “Style and performance” design in response to the demand of the current markets.
3) High performance in terms of durability and resistance to corrosion: “products retain their appearance”.
4) Aluminium is immediately recyclable with a good value (environmental benefit).

DIE FORGING APPLICATIONS ARE DEVELOPING
Family 1000 : Mechanical anodised components (electricity, chemistry, agribusiness…)
Family 2000 : Various components for industry including aeronautics (facile machining)

The die forging of ALUMINIUM
the benefit of performance

Mechanical resistance: the characteristics of certain aluminium alloys come close to or exceed the characteristics of steels currently in use.
Finish: ‘High performance’ style appreciated by designers and users.
Weight: 35% reduction in weight in relation to steel (component of the same volume).
Resilience: Aluminium provides considerable elastic resistance.
It also has a very high capacity for absorbing energy (crash).
Corrosion: Aluminium provides good resistance against corrosion.
Its natural layer of oxidation is protective to a certain extent.
The risk of electroplating corrosion may be reduced by various forms of protection.
Assembly: Aluminium may be easily assembled by various methods:
welding, crimping together, folding, clipping...
Resistance to the cold: Aluminium provides resistance and ductility below 0 degrees.
There are numerous cryogenic applications.
Thermal conductivity: Aluminium conducts the temperature 1.8 times better than copper.
It’s an excellent material for temperature exchangers, radiators, etc..
Recycling: The recycling of Aluminium is easy and economical.
The Aluminium recycling industry is high performance and developed.
