Aluminum alloys used for our C profiles

Profall manufactures various types of C profiles made of various aluminum profiles such as 1050, 1070, 3103 and 6060, the so-called "soft" alloys.

1000 series alloys have a minimum 99.5% pure aluminum content. This grants them high electrical and heat conductivity. They are also characterized by excellent corrosion resistance.

3000 series alloys, whose main element is Manganese, have the advantage of having a high resistance to corrosion and are used in braze welding technologies.

6000 series alloys have Silicon and Magnesium as alloying elements. The most significant properties for this alloy family are good workability and welding performance.

C profile uses

Retail C profiles are used in various sectors according to their alloys.

  • Aluminum C profiles made with 1000 series alloys are typically used in the electric and electromechanics sectors;
  • Open C profiles made with 3000 series alloys are typically used in the automotive sector and in heat exchangers;
  • 6000 series alloys are used to manufacture C profiles to be included in welded structures in general and in mechanically processed components. They are used in most custom extruded profiles for all industrial uses.

In general, aluminum profiles are widely used in the building sector, especially for the construction of plasterboard structures or to install insulation panels, a trend in constant growth, given the increasing need to build eco-sustainable buildings and high energy efficiency.

Are you looking for small C profiles? No problem.

Profilati Alluminio is able to manufacture any sized profile, even small and minute, with +/- 0.15 mm standard dimensional tolerance.

Our experience and know-how gained over the years allows us to manufacture C profiles with any required feature. In fact, one of the company's main strengths is the customer oriented approach, always aimed at listening to and solving specific customer needs for all aluminum profiles.

We are happy to make large and small production lots - supplies starting from 200kg, depending on your needs.
