Process Flowchart

Raw material

Buying billets from globally recognized suppliers.

Extrusion

The billets go through the extrusion process, becoming profiles in the most varied shapes and sizes.

Production of parts

The profiles can be used in their original form or they can go through various processes of forming, machining, welding, surface treatments and assembly, giving rise to more complex parts.

Application

The aluminum profiles and parts are used in light and heavy vehicles, appliances, frames, and industrial equipment, among other items, and are present in everyday life.

Recycling

After being used, the products and aluminum have the advantage of being recyclable, being smelted and returning to the beginning of the production cycle.

Prolind's Areas of Operation

Prolind’s quality is assured by continuous investment in excellence and the use of state-of-the-art technology. Our portfolio caters to all market segments, ensuring competitiveness in the use of aluminum in its multiple applications.

Transport
Transport
Aluminum is commonly used in transport worldwide. It can considerably reduce the weight of projects, which allows a significant reduction in the consumption of fossil fuels and, consequently, the emission of pollutant gases. In addition to the automotive segment, aluminum is widely used in the naval, aeronautical and railroad industries.
Industry
Industry
Aluminum alloys are used in several segments of the industrial market, with an emphasis on residential stairs, bicycles, furniture, elevators and even aeronautical equipment. Its diversity of applications is due to its low linear weight, resistance to oxidation and mechanical properties.
Energy
Energy
Another great advantage of aluminum is its electrical and thermal conductivity - characteristics that mean it can be used in heat sinks, electrical busbars, luminaires, capacitors and condensers. The metal is also used in the most modern sustainable energy projects, such as wind and solar power.
Civil Construction
Civil Construction
The most well-known applications for aluminum profiles and components in civil construction are windows, doors and residential frames. Its mechanical resistance also allows it to be used in several other areas of construction, such as structures for large event stages, asphalt blankets, urban signs and scaffolding.
