Small profiles can create new possibilities

Small dimensions and small diameters can be challenging when designing products and applications. Your solution might be small aluminum profiles – micro extrusions.

Hydro's European extrusion unit can extrude functional and flexible aluminum profiles weighing no more than 15g/m, and providing high-precision tolerances from +/- 0.05 mm. Aside from that, small aluminum profiles are like other aluminum profiles, with surface treatment by anodizing or mechanical processing, and suitable for many applications.

You can also count on sensitive product handling, because we understand the value of safely transporting your small profiles in sustainable packaging solutions.

Many benefits with small profiles

Small profiles are suitable for scores of applications and offer many benefits, such as small dimensions, light weight and high precision. Applications include:

  • Sensor and measurement technology
  • LED lighting
  • Furniture trims
  • Shower cubicles
  • Medical and laboratory technology
  • Electrical engineering
  • Components for the building and automotive industries

Small profiles - the more environmentally friendly solution

Using small profiles saves material and weight. Less weight means lower CO2 emissions during transport. Maybe even easier assembly. All this is good for the environment and good for your budget.

You can take another step toward the improved sustainability of your product by choosing low-carbon aluminum for your small profiles. We offer Hydro REDUXA, which guarantees you a maximum CO2 emission of only 4 kg per 1 kg of aluminium.

Choosing Hydro also means choosing honest and responsible production of your products. All 42 of our production sites in Europe have been certified to the ASI Performance Standard, which sets the standard for responsible aluminum production. This means consistent transparency for you.

You will always know where your aluminum comes from.
