When you are in the early stages of developing a new product that will use extruded aluminium, we invite you to consult our technically trained personnel.  They can offer general guidance on the section designs that will best suit your particular application, as well as detailed advice on matters such as thickness, stresses, channels and surface finish.

To help you, we can call on our in-house engineering expertise and experience and on the advanced skills of our research staff.
