Aluminum profiles that last even longer

Aluminum is undoubtedly one of the most popular and universal materials, and can be incorporated into all types of structures - for example, in the form of aluminum profiles. It is affordable, lightweight, durable and known to be easy to maintain.

In this article, we will highlight the properties, advantages and limitations of aluminum, as well as a few tips on how to maintain your aluminum profiles so that they last even longer.

The properties of aluminum

Widely used in transportation and industry, such as for storage and shipping, aluminum is an incredibly versatile material. Much of the reason for its popularity is its low weight relative to its strength, its long lifespan and its low maintenance requirements.

Aluminum profiles for offshore projects

In the offshore context, aluminum profiles are often chosen for various types of structures - such as sheds and equipment boxes - because of its corrosion-free properties that allow it to withstand the harsh offshore environment without requiring extra maintenance.

With its properties, the end user can rest assured that the material will hold up well even in the harshest of environments.

Endlessly recyclable

In recent years, the focus on sustainability, especially among industrial companies and the energy industry, has meant that the environmental benefits of aluminum have also received a lot of attention. Not surprising, since about 75% of the aluminum that has been produced over the years is still in use today. This is because aluminum can be recycled indefinitely without compromising its unique properties or quality.

Give your aluminum profiles an even longer lifespan

Even though the material itself has a considerably longer lifespan than similar alternatives such as steel and iron, there are still some things you can do to improve the lifespan even more. Regularly washing and wiping off dirt and grime will give your profiles an even better chance of lasting a long time.

What is the best product for maintaining aluminum profiles?

When it comes to maintaining aluminum profiles, the best product is a combination of soap and water. Soap and water will remove dirt and stains, while not damaging the surface.

If you want to do a more thorough cleaning, you can use a mild alcohol solution, but we recommend that you speak directly with your supplier for more detailed information on cleaning with alcohol.

Cleaning and cleaning the profiles

Cleaning and maintaining your profiles is important to extend their lifespan and keep them in good condition. Here are some tips on how to clean and care for your profiles:

  • 1. Clean the profiles with a soft cloth or brush. Avoid using sharp objects that can damage the surface.
  • 2. Use mild detergents and water when cleaning your profiles. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the material.
  • 3. Dry the profiles thoroughly after cleaning to avoid stains or marks.
