Other end-customer markets

Selected niche markets such as transformers, aluminium foil for speciality packaging and heat exchanger solutions for industrial applications, agricultural machinery and wind power turbines.

Heat exchangers for other areas

Examples of other areas that we are serving are the development of heat exchanger materials and solutions for industrial applications, agricultural machinery, and wind power turbines.

Speciality packaging

Aluminium foil provides a complete barrier to light, oxygen, moisture, and bacteria. These properties make it ideal for food cartons and pouches. Container foil is divided into three major categories: household/institutional foil, semi-rigid containers and flexible packaging. For decades, the use of foil has grown steadily in each of these categories. Semi-rigid containers are among the most versatile of all types of packaging and are widely used for pre-packaged foods, easily withstanding great differences in temperature from freezing to heating.


A transformer is an electrical device used to increase or decrease the alternating voltages in electric power applications. It consists of two or more coils called windings, which are wrapped around a core. In North America, aluminium plays an important role in the design of electrical distribution and large power transformers thanks to its significant cost and weight advantages versus copper.
