Peraluman

Peraluman® – beautiful,
soft sheen, impact resistant and tensile
Thanks to their absolute corrosion resistance and associated resistance to acids and salts, these alloys are used to manufacture machines for the production of foodstuffs. The parts are impact resistant and display good elongation after fractures. Their particularly soft sheen and their ability to anodise in colour enable them to be used in areas where looks count.

The metaphor from nature for this alloy is soft coral. It is gracefully structured and appears bright in dark water – it has the same matt sheen as parts produced from Peraluman.


Peraluman®-30 [ AlMg3 ]

Areas of use
Architecture, fittings, builder's hardware, lighting, domestic appliances, air conditioning, art casting, foodstuffs industry, mechanical engineering, model/mould construction, optics/furniture, shipbuilding, chemical industry.

Distinguishing characteristics
Excellent chemical resistance, particularly to salt water. Perfectly suited to decorative anodic oxidation, outstanding sheen after mechanical polishing. Very good elongation and impact toughness values. Suitable for challenging casting technique.
