Alcoa aluminum provides stronger, more durable consumer electronics products. It can be formed, cut, joined, shaped and can create products in a wide variety of looks and finishes. Aluminum enhances function, user experience, and value in products. We’re also using aluminum as a springboard for concept development and prototyping in the consumer electronics market. Designers are exploring a stream of new techniques such as precision die-casting for enclosures, casings, and structural components, and a constantly expanding range of engineered and anodized surface treatments.
