Through our profile supplier Hydro Extrusion, we are able to offer two alternatives with significantly lower environmental impact during production than the average for aluminum. Hydro REDUXA which is produced with renewable energy and has a carbon footprint of less than a quarter of the global average. Hydro CIRCAL contains a minimum of 75% recycled aluminum, post-consumer scrap.
All profile alloys used by Interal have good corrosion resistance. According to the customer's wishes, we have the opportunity to offer a number of additional alloys in addition to those mentioned.

Aluminum, a recyclable material
Aluminum is a metallic element, which can be recycled to 100% without losing its original properties significantly. Of all the aluminum ever produced, up to 75% is still in use. This makes aluminum an excellent choice of material when sustainable applications are required.
