Forged Aluminum Alloys

Forged Aluminum for Excellent Durability & Design Flexibility 

Aluminum is well-suited to several forging techniques and applications as it is light in weight, corrosion-resistant, and extremely durable. To resist environmental harm, the aluminum surface atoms instantly form a protective oxide layer, when exposed to air and water, which prevents further internal corrosion.
