As a relatively new material, having only been commercially available since 1886, Aluminium has undergone rapid development. It has evolved from a decorative material with very limited properties, to a fully fledged engineering material.
Today, it is used widely across a variety of markets and applications. Recent technological advancements, such as aluminium cutting/profiling and pre-machining of plate and bar, help deliver more efficient and cost-effective solutions for customers.
Righton Blackburns only sources materials from approved and highly-reputable mills. Customers can have confidence that all materials originate from trusted and proven manufacturers.
Aluminium is available in a wide range of alloys, production processes and heat treatments, and can be divided into two major categories of wrought alloys:
- Work hardening alloys
- Heat treatable or precipitation hardening alloys
With one of the largest stock ranges of aluminium, Righton Blackburns offers a full range of sheet, plate, tube, bar, angle, box section, extrusion, and composites. We stock a range of premium quality standard and bespoke aluminium profiles in a range of alloy specifications from 0.012kg/m to 268kg/m and a fast turnaround service on new dies and samples.
