Aluminium, sustainable material

SUSTAINABILITY

Aluminum is the material of the present and the future. It is innovation, avant-garde and sustainability, that is why it is the most used material in building enclosures.

It is an ecological and sustainable metal for the following reasons:

– It is 100% recyclable. The recycling process only needs 5% of the energy required to produce the metal in its original manufacture. In addition, recycled aluminum has the same properties as the initially manufactured aluminum.

– It is a key element in the creation of a circular economy and in the reduction of CO2 emissions, due to its infinite reuse and consequent reduction in waste generation.

– It is a durable and strong metal, so the products have a long service life.

– It contributes to energy savings due to the optimal thermal and acoustic insulation that it provides to a home or building.

– The aluminum manufacturing process is sustainable and is carried out based on the most demanding production standards.

ALUMINIUM ADVANTATGES

Other advantages of aluminum compared to other materials (iron, PVC or wood) are:

– It has the best quality/ price

– It offers more aesthetic options adapting to any style

Lightweight (1/3 in relation to steel)

Easy machining and great malleability

Does not require maintenance

– Excellent corrosion resistance

– It does not burn or emit toxic gases
