ALUMINUM GRADES

For an aluminum bar stock metal to have accurate features, it must undergo rigorous mechanical testing to determine the heating condition and environment they are suitable at.

Aluminum or Aluminum Alloy has an extensive range of different grades that have varied properties used in many different applications. 

As such, Forte Precision Metals has aluminum alloys available in an extensive range of grades that are used for applications like discs, rolled rings, blocks, flanges, shafts, hubs, and other forged components that are machined into desired finished parts.

Moreover, we provide heat-treatable continuous production of aluminum round bar stock in varying grades to meet the requirements set by customers locally and globally.

Below is a table detailing Forte Precision Metals’ aluminum grades:
