E-MAX sells aluminium profiles and billets in various alloys. E-MAX billets and profiles are produced with a maximum input of recycled aluminium. For example, 6060 and 6063 alloys are 80% recycled aluminium. For the 6005 and 6061 alloys, the percentage is a phenomenal 97%. All the alloys are naturally also compliant with the European EN 486 and EN 573 standards and every alloy can be supplied in all the standard diameters.

Scientific research into the quality of circular aluminium
For over a decade the company has conducted scientific research into the quality of circular aluminium, in collaboration with the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. The results of this research underscore the excellent performance of X-ECO premium circular aluminium, specifically:
- A smooth, matt surface structure after etching. Given the right alloy composition and process parameters, a smooth, matt surface structure can be achieved.
- Little colour variation after anodization. Good control over the etching process prevents colour differences.
- Good resistance against filiform corrosion after powder coating. Good control over process parameters, coupled with the use of high-quality raw materials, leads to good resistance to filiform corrosion.
We have condensed all of this information into a convenient summary. See the result and the effect on X-ECO premium circular aluminium at a glance.
