55HX

Premium anodising quality aluminium.

55HX® is a high quality, high-performance aluminium for interior and exterior applications.

55HX® composition and surface quality ensure it is especially suitable for decorative anodisation, with a large array of processing options and finishes providing additional creative freedom. 55HX® allows architects to design the material in line with their individual needs. The easiness of its bending, perforating, punching and deep-drawing have made it an outstanding aluminium solution. After the anodizing aluminium substrate is weather, corrosion and UV-resistant while maintaining the authentic metallic gloss as well as the durability.

55HX® is ideal for facades, cladding, ceilings, walls and showcase designs and comes in a range of forms, sizes and gauges.
