Physical Characteristics

The main characteristics of aluminum are:
Aluminum has a very low weight: it weighs only a third of the steel for the same volume, allowing, in this way, to achieve significant savings in terms of weight in almost all kinds of applications, especially the mechanical one.


The aluminum, thanks to its ability to develop an impenetrable film of oxide on the exposed surfaces, is not subject to problems of atmospheric corrosion, common to iron and copper, and does not require any kind of protective coating. For this reason it is particularly suitable for architectural and naval applications, and for the production of windows and curtain walls.

Aluminum has an excellent specific electrical conductivity and it is essential for electronics and electrical applications. In fact, It allows to realize lines of great length with aluminum cables capable of conducting electrical current in double measure of those of copper of the same weight. It also lends itself to applications of heating and cooling.

It is a non-toxic material widely used to contain food and beverages.

The aluminum is flexible and can be shaped with all the common processing techniques, more easily than the majority of the other metals.

The possibility of using the metal alloys, which can be rigid or elastic, particularly robust and resistant to corrosion, allows to adapt the aluminum to a wide range of needs.

The aluminum is easily recyclable with a low energy cost: currently a quarter of the needs in Europe is satisfied by using second hand aluminum which can be recycled indefinitely

Processing stages


Thanks to the use of some micro tools our aluminum profiles are subjected to an optimized cutting system which works according to a numerical control. Once opened and dissected by our skilled staff, the profiles are ready for the second stage of processing.


The cleaning is a process that makes aluminum more interesting by acting gradually over its brightness.


The profiles are drilled and milled through the use of CNC machines. The oil used evaporates leaving no residues on the bar. This is a procedure with a very low environmental impact.


When aluminum is not enough and we want to combine it with other materials, are necessary appropriate assembly techniques, performed by our experienced staff.
