At Advanced Packaging, we offer a variety of custom aluminum cases suitable for many applications. Aluminum is a great material for case construction due to its unique properties that give it several advantages over other metals.

While many strong metals are also heavy, aluminum is unique in that it is both strong and lightweight. Pure aluminum is strengthen by mixing it with other elements to make aluminum alloys, which can double its strength. Aluminum is approximately 1/3 the weight of steel which makes for an impressive strength-to-weight ratio. Aluminum is resistant to corrosion, non-magnetic, non-combustible, and non-toxic.

Another beneficial property of aluminum is its ability to be recycled infinitely. It is found in abundance in the earth’s crust, and can be recycled without decline in performance or quality. This makes it a great for use in many industrial applications, and ensures that we’ll have a sustainable supply of aluminum for future use.
