As well as aerospace, all forms of transport on land and sea benefit from using light, strong, durable 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.
Alcoa Europe Kitts Green’s high strength heat-treatable aluminium armours alloys from the entire hulls of the Alvis Stormer and Warrior fighting vehicle families. Derivative alloys are sold into the defence industries of the world.
Low density, high strength alloys with enhanced machinability increasingly challenge traditional steel applications in the general engineering market sector. Alcoa Europe's own range of Alumec  alloys offer designers a fresh combination of material properties for use in plastic moulds.
