Aerospace aluminium Stockist & Suppliers.
Aluminum seems to be the king in aircraft construction, though in recent years some new alloys have been applied. These super alloys are still quite expensive for the aircraft homebuilder. With its good strength to weight and cost ratio, aluminum is still used very widely in the industry.
Modern airframes are typically made from around 80% aluminium, giving the strength and durability of much heavier metals and alloys.
Over recent years, the focus has been on the development and increased efficiency of casting and manufacturing processes.
Creating intricate sections and adapting to designs with ever-increasing complexity is at the heart of the aluminium industry, with Simmal being no different.
