Curtain Wall Aluminium Profiles
Aluminum is a green material of choice. Aluminum’s inherent “green
features” of recyclability and sustainability, coupled with its
other unique attributes, make aluminum a versatile material for
many applications, but the exciting story of aluminum doesn’t stop
here. The ability to extrude aluminum into complex shapes (profile)
gives designer creative freedom. Where the environment, time, cost
and process repeatability are the important parameters, aluminum
extrusions, industrial aluminum profiles offer a material and
process choice that is literally second to none for countless
Aluminium Extrusion Process
Aluminium profiles process involves the use of a hydraulic press to force heated
(still solid, but malleable) aluminum alloy through a steel die.
The resulting aluminum profile assumes the shape (in cross section)
of the die opening.
Surface Treatment :
Aluminum profiles can be treated with a wide range of finishes
wherever additional protection or an enhanced appearance is
1. Mechanical Finishes are available in a variety of textures,
produced by a variety of mechanical methods such as sanding,
polishing, grinding, buffing, or blasting.
2. Pretreatment refers to specific processes used to prepare the
surface of the aluminum profile for subsequent finishing.
3. Chemical Finishes include etching, which yields a frosted
surface appearance, and bright-dipping, which produce very shiny,
4. Anodizing is an electro-chemical process that forms a durable,
porous anodic oxide layer on the surface of aluminum
5. Liquid Coatings include a broad range of paints such as
polyesters, acrylics, siliconized polyesters, and fluoropolymers
available in virtually unlimited array of colors.
6. Powder Coatings provide a durable finish with little or no use
of solvents; they are gaining use while volatile organic compounds
(VOCs) are problematic.
