Our range of rolled plates includes heat-treatable alloys as well as non heat-treatable products. Heat-treatable alloys show higher strength values compared with non heat-treatable alloys but greatest caution is needed. Many components are subjected to a heat-treatment for stress relieving during or after the machining. During this process too high temperatures can lead to a loss of strength when you are using heat-treatable alloys.
You can simply prevent this effect by using G.AL Aluminium Cast Plates. Due to their low stress level no additional heat-treatment is necessary and you can save a lot of time and money.
From our point of view Aluminium Cast Plates can substitute rolled material in nearly all applications but there are still components which require aluminium rolled material.
