Technical Data for Alusic Aluminium Profile

All extruded aluminium profiles are manufactured by Alusic SRL (Italy) using a primary aluminium alloy EN-AW 6060 (Al Mg Si  0.5).  The metallurgical state of the extruded aluminium bars is T5/T6 (solution heat treatment, tempered and artificially aged) to ensure long lasting dimensional and mechanical property stability.

The dimensional tolerances for aluminium profile extrusion are in compliance with the European standard UNI-EN 12020-2 for precision extrusions.
