Products and Markets

Transportation
In addition to aerospace markets, all forms of transport on land and sea benefit from using light, strong, durable aluminium alloy plate made at our mill in Kitts Green.
Marine applications include fast ferries, cruise liners and leisure craft whilst land transportation includes railway/metro systems and heavy goods vehicle bodies.
Defence
Kitts Green's high strength heat-treatable aluminium armour alloys are used by defence industries around the world.
Engineering
Low density, high strength alloys with enhanced machinability increasingly challenges the use of steel in the general engineering market sector.
Alcoa Europe's own range of Alumec alloys offer designers an advantageous combination of material properties for use in plastic moulds.
