Aluminium is a malleable, easily fabricated, recyclable and very light weight. It is approximately 1/3 as dense as steel or copper and an attractive material for weight critical applications.
Corrosion resistant and durable
Like Zinc and Copper, Aluminium is corrosion resistant material that forms its own protective oxide layer for superior durability.
It is available in coils up to 1.2m wide or flat sheet and in thicknesses from 0.9mm. Finishes available include; plain – a smooth surface and stucco – a textured surface that reduces reflection. Aluminium is available in a wide range of standard Colorcote and Colorsteel colours or with Anodised coatings and a vast range of colours and finishes available from Euramax Premium Coil Coated Aluminium.
