Aluminium profiles: Profilpas solutions
Aluminium (Al) is the most widespread chemical element in nature after oxygen and silicon. Aluminium is a silvery-white metal with different advantages such as recyclability, lightness, resistance to corrosion, high electrical and thermal conductivity, ductility and malleability. However, the aluminium we find in industrial applications, household utensils and appliances, means of transport and construction industry is hardly ever in its pure state, but it is used in alloy with small quantities of other metals, such as silicon, magnesium and manganese, which strengthen some of its important properties. For example, silicon (Si) enhances the castability and reduces the expansion, magnesium (Mg) increases the malleability and the resistance to corrosion in alkaline and sea areas, and manganese (Mn) increases the mechanical resistance and the resistance to corrosion.
From skirting boards to profiles, Profilpas offers many solutions in natural, anodised and colour-coated aluminium (alloy of Al-Mg-Si 6060) and bright aluminium. The latter is composed of a special alloy 6463 which enhances the brilliance of the material further. The selection of finishes offered by Profilpas is really extended, thus giving space to each need and taste. The anodised aluminium is available in numerous finishes, such as silver, gold, titanium and in the special finishes X-Design platinum, titanium, brown, dark brown and carbon. The bright aluminium is also available in different polished, satin or scratched finishes such as silver, gold, titanium, copper and smoky grey. Lastly, even the colour-coated aluminium is offered in many variations: besides being available in colours such as polished white, matt white, anthracite grey, ancient grey and rust, it is available in the new finishes Trend Color Stone black ST, dark brown, anthracite grey, ancient grey, grey, rust, bronze, stone, greige, sand, beige and white ST.
