Stronger, lighter and low-energy aluminium coil

Arconic’s innovative new Micromill™ rolling technology makes the most advanced aluminium sheet on the market today.

It reduces the time needed to transform molten metal into aluminium coil from 20 days to 20 minutes, and uses 50% less energy than the traditional rolling process. The coil is then used in a wide variety of products, from car bodies to cladding and insulation in construction.

The automotive alloy produced by Micromill™ is 40% more malleable and 30% stronger than other aluminium sheets, and car parts made with the material will be twice as formable and 30% lighter than parts made from high-strength steel.
