Prevent Corrosion Through Design for Extreme Environment Use

One of the clear advantages of choosing to work with aluminum products is the natural abilities of this fantastic material. When aluminum is exposed to oxygen, an oxide layer of protection is formed that prevents damage caused by exposure to chemicals, abrasives, and other things in the environment. However, it is possible to increase this protection and prevent corrosion through design. At Silver City Aluminum, our team of highly trained and experienced engineers works with each client to design custom profiles based on their unique needs and specifications. This is part of the reason why custom extrusion design has become so popular with manufacturers. Custom profiles can be created to reduce costs, decrease production time, and improve the finished product quality.

Solutions for Multiple Industries

Another primary reason for using aluminum products is not just the resistance to abrasives, chemicals, and heavy use, but also the way that the metal itself stands up in extreme environments. Steel becomes brittle in exceptionally low temperatures, while aluminum becomes even stronger as the temperature drops. This makes custom extrusion design the perfect choice for cold environment use, such as far north locations, industries that work in temperature-controlled facilities, and other applications. The long-lasting properties and durability of aluminum products, along with recyclability and make them the perfect choice for everyday use or for industries where sustainability and eco-friendly solutions are required.

Many new industries are hopping on board to use custom extrusion design to improve the quality and performance of the parts, components, and products that they use every day. Construction, medical, solar, marine, transportation, and other industrial applications can benefit from learning how to design custom profiles to suit their needs. Advances in product design using aluminum take advantage of the natural qualities of the metal material, but also in how to use aluminum more effectively in specific environments. The marine industry, as an example, shows us how learning how to prevent corrosion through design can help aluminum products stand up better to long-term exposure to saltwater, freshwater, and other types of moisture-rich environments.
