Aluminium Plate

Aluminium Plate

Hulamin has built a reputation around the world for our plate products.

Aluminium plate products are in great demand in the transportation market. Aluminium’s advantage over other materials stems from the combination of these key properties: It is corrosion resistant, light weight and can be welded and formed easily.

Our aluminium plate is also used in other industries including automotive, electrical, semi-conductor, vacuum chamber, pneumatic, machine and mould building as well as in the defence industry.

Hulamin’s aluminium plate products are certified by all the major classification societies, such as Det Norske Veritas (DNV), the American Bureau of Shipping, Lloyds Register EMEA and TUV Rheinland.

Our flagship plate products are:
