Profile Custom Extrusions specializes in 6000 series aluminum alloys. These alloys are heat treatable, and known for strength, machinability, and finish quality.
While pure aluminum is available, it is rarely used commercially. Most aluminum in production today is mixed with other elements to achieve desired physical characteristics. The 6000 series aluminum is a combination of aluminum, magnesium, and silicon.
After extrusion, the aluminum is aged in a temperature controlled oven for a specified period of time at a specified temperature to achieve the exact characteristics needed in the extrusions.
