Molten Aluminum

Molten aluminum and special alloys are made to order at the Poços de Caldas (MG) and São Luís (MA) units.

Molten aluminum offers Alcoa’s customers a competitive advantage because it eliminates the ingot resmelting stage, saves considerable amounts of energy and reduces CO2 emissions.

It is transported in special closed containers called “crucibles”, loaded onto special trucks, whose speed is controlled to comply with the safety norms. Because delivery logistics are strictly controlled, it is possible to reduce stock levels.
